do i need Apple application support?

Postby mbday630 » Tue Nov 21, 2017 7:49 am

My DIL used my computer the other day and now my computer acts different. I went to control panel and looked at my programs and there is an Apple application support, an apple software update, and apple mobile device support. she used my computer to hook up her new phone and try to sync her old phone to her new phone. do I need these things on my computer? should I delete them?

I would definitely uninstall them - don't delete, uninstall.

I shouldn't say it is acting differently, it looks different. My home page icon is on the left now and different and I have tried moving them around but it won't budge. also, I have an itunes icon on it and and sometimes randomly it will start playing songs. so, I do have the revo uninstaller - should I uninstall all those things?

Ah, you must be using Firefox! They updated it to the latest version called Quantum. That's why that look different. Where is this iTunes icon? On the desktop?

ah, so Firefox is the culprit. I thought it was something that she did. yes, the itunes was on the desktop but I deleted the desktop icon and I think I should uninstall that. I don't use that.

Yes, deleting the desktop icon just removes the shortcut, not the program itself. You should definitely uninstall the program.
