How do you do it for Windows 8?

I tried the way described above, but the "dialog box" that pops up is asking whether I want to let that program MAKE CHANGES to my computer - and Im pretty sure I dont want it doing anything of the sort! I cant trust it to "leave peacefully," you could say.

Thanks for posting this article. I hope you have some input on my question.
I deleted the wecare.com REMINDER, but "wecare.com" is still there. I want to get rid of that too! How can I do that????
(Its listed as an add-on in IE10. I have disabled it, but I want to REMOVE it.)
I downloaded Malwarebytes free from CNET. It detected wecare and removed it. I use microsofts built in security for Windows8, which did not protect me. Spybot or Avast did not detect it as a malware either. Cheers for the malwarebytes !!!
