Thought it could be a nice program to clean junk and boost performance on my old MacBook Pro 2013. In addition, many bloggers recommend this app. Turn out to be a bad sh*t. 

 

Can't find a way to remove the app.

If it is a Mac program on a Mac computer, I am afraid you would be better served to visit a Mac forum...  SWI is focused primarily on PCs with Windows, although we do have a few Android experts around...

While I'm only familiar with the PC version, when I searched for Mac spyware removal I found that there is now a Mac version of Malwarebytes. You might give that a try:

You could also try googling for Mac software assistance forum to locate a help forum such as https://macosx.com/c...help-forums.22/and others.

Non-professional eraser tools cannot completely uninstall the Mojave from your Mac,i recommend it to you here:tunesbro.com/delete-unwanted-apps-on-mac, it is so poweful that you can back up you Mac before you do that.
