if control panel wont work,
go to..

its small in file size, great pc cleaning utility that literally takes seconds!!!

also its free, and has a built in uninstaller, that will if corrupted, delete the program and registry settings, where the default windows fails to do so.

First try a system restore to a date before you installed this program, this should fix the add-remove programs for you. If not, you may have picked up an infection (always install download programs from the original site or a trusted site, or a certified mirror site). Run Malwarebytes after your antivirus just to be sure. If you still have trouble uninstalling, you might want to look here:

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
