This particular one was downloaded from the webstore:after a redirect from their website:How do I remove ConvertoWiz?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish.
