Comments on Bubble Dock

I downloaded remover for bubble dock and the pc asks which program do I want to open it with. So, which one do I use?
The above instructions wouldnt work, it seems to have inbuilt protection against being removed (or even stopped permanently). I followed the above instructions but in Safe Mode, and it worked fine thankfully.
