  1. I have been trying to remove from my computer for about a week now. I have not been able to get it off my computer. I tried everything. I have tried to go to my control panel, features and programs, but I do not see Portaldosites. What other names can it be hiding under? I really want this off my computer. It is a stubborn PUP.
