Thread: Can't uninstall PeerGuardian

  1. #1
    Whenever I try to uninstall PG, I get this message saying yadda-yadda, something-something.exe doesn't not exist, cannot uninstall.

    So can I just delete PG from my start menu and program files and be rid of it completely?

    If I remember correctly, PG is just a single executable file, and a single blocklist text file. If you delete those, and remove it from your startup (if it was set to start when windows started) then it should be gone for good.

    Who is your daddy and what does he do?

    just to make sure all is gone you could install it again and then uninstall. That's usually what is recommended when files are missing.

    Just delete it from Program Files, your Start Menu, and the Registry...

    Why are you removing it by the way?

    Well, it's caused my computer to crash on a number of occasions.

    Oh, and I've never messed around with my registry before other than with CCleaner, which I know cleans up some stuff from your registry, but that's about it, though. How risky is this?
