downloaded from utorrent... application to install "apps" for PC desktop
I saw this on my start up manager, this is a new lap top (under 1 yr) by TOSHIBA & I didn't add this. I don't even know what it is suppose to do or what it is for .... but I would like to know
Downloaded as a Windows 8 start menu replacement.

Not suitable for Win 7. it caused several system crashes and other problems too numerous to mention. It was a long late night working out the problem to Pokki before I fixed it.
After removing from recently purchased Lenovo, the right mouse click event kept including 'Add to Pokki menu' as an option. I removed this from the registry with RegEdit. Pokki's own removal software didn't clean the registry. Much better now it's gone.

Best practices for resolving pokki issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with pokki. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
