Connectify is an easy-to-use software router for Windows computers that utilizes your PC’s built-in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection with friends, co-workers, and mobile devices. This application has won many users while a lot of them run into troubles when trying to uninstall Connectify 2016.
To earn extra profit, it places different ads on its interface, and that could be one of the reasons that some users want it gone. Although Connectify is a quite small program that doesn’t take too much disk space, it would still be uncomfortable to see a needless application in the system. Additionally, if you haven’t updated this application for a very long time, you might need to remove it before installing its latest version.
For all these reasons, I wrote this instruction so that you can learn how to fully uninstall Connectify 2016 in Windows through the reading. Just take your time. 🙂
How to Uninstall Connectify 2016 from My PC?
Compared to Windows 8, the main difference of Windows 10 is that it provides a brand new Start menu other than the Start screen, and these two can be easily switched between each other. In the following steps, I particularly listed the steps you can take via the Start menu in Windows 10 along with those in Windows 7/8. Hopefully they see to every reader’s needs.
First of all, make sure you’re using an Administrator account. If your system never had a second account, ignore this, then start the removal right away:
1. Close Connectify.
Quit the Connectify 2016 program from running in the background no matter what. It may not be necessary towards the removal of some programs, but just in case.
2. Open the list of currently installed programs.
Windows 7: open the Start menu > Control Panel > Uninstall a program
Windows 8: right-click on the Start button > Control Panel > Uninstall a program
Windows 10: open the Start menu > Settings > System > Apps & features
3. Uninstall Connectify 2016 from the programs list.
Click on Connectify 2016 > Uninstall or Double-click Connectify 2016 to activate its default uninstaller > confirm the removal (Tick the “Do not remove logs/settings” option if you plan on reinstalling it) > wait for the wizard to finish the process.
4. Open the Windows Registry Editor.
Windows 7: open the Start menu > Execute “regedit” in the search box
Windows 8: point your mouse to the bottom-right corner > Search > Execute “regedit” in the box
Windows 10: open the Start menu > Execute “regedit” in the search box
5. Delete the vestiges to completely uninstall Connectify 2016 from your PC.
Now you’re removing the files that regular uninstallation might leave behind. Before doing this, you might want to read How to Back up & Restore the Registry in case of any mistaken deletion.
Then on the navigator of Registry Editor, click Edit > Find… > search for “Connectify” > Delete the file (s)/folder (s) you found.
6. Restart your PC to take effect.
Then check your system tray (right end of the taskbar) and Task Manager (hit Ctrl + Alt + Del to open), if Connectify is not there then the removal was successful.
