How to remove these game providers...

Hello, I would like to remove these game providers(WildTangent, mostly) but whenever I go to uninstall it, it just displays this:

What can I do? I've waited for a while and It doesn't do anything. Thanks for helping. (Btw, I'm new, so if this isn't in the right place please tell me)

This might be the solution to your problem. It looks as though you have removed the games, but the game manager is still there? Gotta love the preloaded software that comes on new computers. ~laughs~

Just use Devux's suggestion.

Outside of that, if the program uninstalled and just left the .png files behind, Just delete them and you'll be good. No need to install any third party programs like revo just to uninstall those. Especially since you're a novice.

Good luck.

I agree. I myself have deleted parts of the registry that shouldn't be deleted thanks to extreme uninstaller recommendations. Always be careful when using those.

Isn't WildTangent one step(if that), from spyware?

More or less. A bunch of that pre-loaded software is...questionable, at best.

I tried Devux's suggestion, but it doesn't work because that tutorial is only for HP computers. Mine's a Toshiba, which has unneeded preinstalled crappy programs. I've removed most of those but now I still have wildtangent to remove. I think I'd be able to do something but I'm typing this on my iPod right now. I'll go on my laptop. And I'll tell you if the others' suggestions worked.

Be careful with it - you might want some of the stuff it offers to remove.
