    somehow, I have idlebuddy installed on my laptop. when I go through control panel to uninstall it, it does NOT uninstall. How it got through Windows Defender to begin with makes me question the ability of WD to protect to begin with.


    Does anyone have any idea how I can get this off my computer please?

    :)

    For other users this guide helped:

    Note:

    1. If you can't do step1, move on with the other steps. The step with HitmanPro might not be necessary.

    2. Good that you didn't fall for all the other guides which try to lure you into installing/buying SpyHunter!

    Hi Roger

    Open the old Control Panel (click your Start Button, then just type control and hit Enter)

    Go to programs and Features

    Order that list by the 'Installed On' column, so that arrow faces up

    Look for any strange software installed on or about the date IdleBuddy appeared (it will not be named IdleBuddy)

    Id_Buddy removal

    Thanks but 2 of those steps do not work. Id_Buddy does not show on Control Panel for removal and Malwarebytes said it removed stuff associated with it yet it still shows as being installed even after restarting the computer.

    Deleting IdleBuddy: I can't delete idle buddy because it says "The action can't be completed because the file is open in IdlingBuddyServive". The other IdleBuddy File says "The action can't be completed because the file is open in IBCI" What si IBCI, but more importantly how do I get risdof this...
