How can I get rid of folder / pop up?

How do I get rid of an annoying "Creative Product Registration" pop up which comes on it's own from when I turn on the computer and won't go away no matter if I click on close (it just comes right back) or do Alt-del and end task, and i have uninstalled everything I can find relating to the Web-Cam I originally installed which relates to this pop up for registration. The last thing is in my programs folders, I found it there in a folder. When I went to delete it, it wouldn't allow me saying I needed permission, but I am the administrator of this computer.... please help. It's driving me nuts and I only wanted to go on the internet to do some research this morning and have now wasted the whole morning trying to get rid of it.... : - (

You might try some progs like undelete, move on boot, dr delete, etc...they will all work on deleting that folder etc.

Thanks for replying. So does this mean I should type one of those words you suggested into the internet? It would be helpful if you could point out a few steps in how I should do this as me and technicalities are chalk and cheese. Thanks.

I tried looking at Dr Delete and it tookme to "speeding up my PC" which scanned my computer and said there were several thousand things to clean up which it would do for £19.99.
Then I tried Move on Boot, and that lead me to something else that I would have to pay to use.

It this the only way? If so, do you recommend "speeding up my PC"?
Thanks

whenever you go to a download site....JUST download what you went there for, those other free trials are rip-offs.
Here is the link for Dr Delete:
http://www.docsdownloads.com/dr-del...

When you go to download a "FREE" software, advertisers pay to put up their ads to coax you into something else.

I don't recommend speed up my PC, it is not worth anything, in fact all those trials for speeding up PC's will give you false positives to get you to buy their product...and they just don't work.

Ok, I went to the link, I clicked on "click here to download zip file" and it appeared like a file does in my computer. However when I tried to open it, it just asked me to install it again. When I tried to drag the offending file to it, it just copied it next to the Dr Delete. What am I doing wrong? I'm sure everyone said it was simple. Just my luck with computers. Thanks for your patience.

ok, right click on the zip file and left click on 'extract all' and then open the folder and execute the file. Then right click on the folder to delete it with Dr Delete.

No Luck! I right click, it shows a drop down bar starting with "open" but up at the top of the overall box is a selection marked "extract all files" so I click on that and can choose a destination folder. Then it just wants me to install it again and then says, oh you already have it, replace the other one?
Maybe it's not compatible with my PC.
While we are here, can you recommend the best program for cleaning up the PC (once I have got over this "creative product registration" pop up folder)
Any other suggestions how to get rid of it? ANy idea why it's not working?
Thanks again.
