    I need help to remove mapsgalaxy from my personal computer. I am not understanding how to remove it on my own. I needed directions and a map to a doctor’s office I had never been to in the past. Mapsgalaxy was no help at all, and with the comments in the above articles, I’m definitely want this to be removed.
    hoping you can help me with this. Please let me hear from you.
