Backup your registry. Just do a restore point. Then Open up Regedit by typing Regedit in the Run Box. At the top click on edit then Find and type in IDM. Click on Find and when it finds the next entry, click on delete, then F3 and continue this until all keys are removed. Restart your machine and you should be rid of it.

Hello Pearl,

In addition, you might also check your startup programs to see if IDM is listed. If so, you could disable it to stop it from running at startup.

Startup Programs - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Britton30 , hi done what you advised but I hit a problem , firstly the pages was coming up blank so I tried again and my pc froze I lost my cursor I waited and waited but nothing was happening I couldn't end the tasks like normally and it wouldn't even close down so in the end I know I shouldn't have but didn't know what else I should do so I took my battery out because it was making a funny noise .then I eventually got my puter back on ,thankyou for helping me ,It probably was me doing something wrong , thankyou
