    Right click the Task Manager on your computer. Find MobileGoserves. End it. Then, uninstall it.
    After installing this on my PC, found out it is a 15-day trial. Now even after un-installing the program it is still running. The program files are still there. Have to manually clean up my system.
    it works great, thanks

    Jillianstewart, you can view call logs by trying Notepad++.
    Once you have done the back up of Call Logs to your PC, what program so you have to download in order to view the call logs from your computer? I have tried Acrobat reader, Word and none work. Any suggestions? Thanks
