IOBit is a "legitimate" company that peddles crapware. They don't have a good program. Ask any experienced Technician, and they will tell you to steer
clear of their "products".
In your case, you got not only iobit's crapware, but also got some adware/junkware from the place you downloaded it. Sorry you had to learn the hard
way. But it happens a lot, unfortunately.
ETA: Forgot to add. Along with Ccleaner mentioned above. You might want to run Adwcleaner and malwarebytes. Together, they should clean up the mess,
unless you have something more serious. Ccleaner and malwarebytes can be gotten from filehippo.com. Adwcleaner should be downloaded from
bleepingcomputer.com. Both clean sites, though I don't recommend clicking the ads on filehippo.com.
