In Internet Explorer 11 there is no uninstall as you say, there is remove and it is greyed out. Though it can be disabled removing it, uninstalling it, is not possible.

I went to Firefox Extensions MixiDJ is not listed there -- but it has made itself the home page!!! I did download Spyhunter which did detect MixDj, however, $39.99 is not in the budget at the moment.
