Aloha, ysterday I received an E-mail from my sister. She told me that there was an application called “PrimoPDF” always froze she didn’t understand why. Then she asked me how to uninstall PrimoPDF. Yeah, I have to admint that my sister doesn’t know much about computer, actually way more than “doesn’t know much about computer” I think. So, I get several efficient ways to uninstall PromoPDF in detailed for her, of course and people who encounter problems when they use the program.
Normally I barely use PrimoPDF on work or in daily life, either I didn’t know what this thing it is years ago. Two years ago, I was preparing a test which was very important. My first job totally counted on it. So I had to go to the book store and bought tons of books and papers. It wasn’t enough, I even downloaded books from the Internet. To be convenient, I wanted to get all these books and papers together to print them out with binding. However, they were in different formats, some were in word, some were in jpg, and I don’t know what to do to print them out in one file once. Then my father made it for me with PrimoPDF.
What is PrimoPDF?
PrimoPDF is a freeware program that creates a PDF file from Microsoft Windows documents. It works as a virtual printer. It is a program that will let you create PDFs from any application on your computer. No matter pictures, articles or charts, PrimoPDF can make them PDFs. You can construct perfect PDF files using the straightforward drag-and-drop tool this application offers. It just looks so conevient and perfect, however, nothing is literally perfect.
But it is still such a useful tool, why so many people want to uninstall this application?
Though PrimoPDF will not have pop-up ads in the usage, it does recommend other Nitro products to the user in the program window. Moreover, many users reported that it is bundled with other third-party programs, for instance, the adware Open Candy that is suspected to change the Internet settings and quite hard to get rid of. And what’s worse, when uninstalling, more problems would come to you. For example:
- It does not work as good as you thought.
- You can not uninstall PrimoPDF with Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
- You keep receiving error messages when you are uninstalling the application.
- It is still running in the background even after you uninstalled it.
- You can still find the folders and files of the program after the uninstallation.
Anyway, no matter for what reason you wanna uninstall PrimoPDF, you may be stuck in unexpected issues, or even have no clue how to properly uninstall this program. There may be many other problems computer users run into when uninstalling the program. As a matter of fact, those issues are caused by improper uninstallation of the program. Also, if the program is corrupted or damaged, users may not be able to uninstall it. If you happen to encounter any trouble in uninstalling the application, I am hornored to me help you out.
