So I was trying to uninstall winRAR archiver, but I accidently clicked imvu (something my brother downloaded) and now it's been about a week and it's still not uninstalling at all! Why is it taking so long!

Really slow pentium -1 processor failing under the stress of the week long attempt at uninstalling a 4 Trillion TB folder?

I'm not rich. You can not always get what you want. And I was just looking for some help. I am just a young girl and I do not know everything.

Well, leaving a program running for days trying to uninstall it is not working. Windows installer or the program's installer should run within seconds not days and uninstall the program. Apparently the program has becom corrupted in some manner. Perhaps go into safe mode and run the uninstall from the control panel/Programs and Features. If that doesn't work, double click My Computer and open the main drive to show the Programs folder. Find the folder that would not uninstall and delete it.

Run ccleaner after deleting the program.
