    So what are you supposed to do when it’s not on the list of installed items? I looked at the listing of items that are installed. Portaldo is not amongst them. In retrospect, I remember it showing up AFTER I installed something else. What this ‘something else’ was, I don’t remember. Are there other names Portaldo is known under? I’m sick of seeing apps and pictures of things I want no part of.
    Thank you.
