Can't uninstall "Blackberry link"

I am trying to Uninstall "Blackberry link" from my Windows 8.1 computer.  I'm convinced there is a virus somehow involved.

Every time I try to uninstall it, it starts the uninstallation, then it says  "the wizard was interrupted before blackberry link could be completely installed"

One site I found said that it's a corrupted Windows Installer.  So, since I only had Windows 8 on the machine, I installed the upgrade to Windows 8.1.  Not sure if that 3-GB upgrade included a new Windows installer or not.

Thanks for any tips.

I found the uninstaller utility within the Research in Motion folder.

I did:  cd C:\Program files (x86)\Research in Motion\Blackbery Link\Installer Utils

.\InstallerUtils.exe /UninstallDesktop

Same result.  Is this potentially the corrupted file?

Solved it.  Someone provided me with "Your Uninstaller".

It worked.
