Arcsoft is a legit company. I used their GIS software in college. A quick Google search tells me that Acrosoft is some sort of document management software. Try uninstalling it from the Programs and Features option in the control panel.

Acrosoft when used in a goole trawl doesn't show up... But Arcsoft shows up (via google of course) as a company who make range of software... How you got it - if it is the site that shows as Arcsoft.com seems to be legit?

What is exact item it claims to be? Have you tried to uninstall it via the add/remove programmes routine?

Otherwise if you feel it's a pest of sorts... Run malwarebytes and see if that gets rid of it?

Various programs include Arcsoft products, so something or other foisted it on you, such as printer software or whatever. I agree entirely that they are a waste of space (although nothing to do with this website).

As given, uninstall the lot from Control Panel > Programs and features. If there is anything left after that delete it manually (a search might find some more).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Otee

That is what happens when you don't read the screens while installing stuff. Did you recently install camera software?

winipcfg is right, Arcsoft is legit in the general sense. However I've found they can be pushy and given half a chance will add their downloader and various other programs if you go for any one of their products. I have also found that their software is often unnecessary, such as their program that mimics Windows Photo Gallery but IMO is messy, unreliable and nowhere near as good.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
