Somehow a program called Just Cloud has gotten downloaded onto my laptop.
It is very annoying because it seems to generate something called
JC Backup which appears every ten minutes asking me if I want to
backup my laptop for free.
I want to get rid of this Just Cloud, etc.
But when I go to Control Panel, highlight it and click Uninstall the following response
comes up
"You do not have sufficient access to complete this action."
I have never ever come across this in Control Panel before.
I am the only user of this laptop which runs Windows 7.
Can you help please?

I haven't run across that, either. Two ideas for you:

(1) In Windows Explorer (or whatever file manager you use), search for the uninstall file, probably called <uninstall.exe> in the JustCloud prorgram folder. Right-click on it and select Run As Administrator.

(2) Go back to a Restore Point prior to the installation of JustCloud.

Regards, Joe
