I was going through my programs a while back and I noticed a Yontoo Layers Runtime which I don't remember installing and when I tried to uninstall it it gives me a "Tarma Installer: Setup initialization error" message.

It is listed as "O" or Open to debate. This means a consensus regarding it's status as goodware or malware has not been reached.

You might try Revo Uninstaller to remove the damaged, unwanted program.

However since it came onto your machine without your knowledge or consent, you may want to have the Analysts look for possible infection.
