Uninstall Frostwire

I am trying to uninstall Frostwire. I have Windows Vista and I go to Control Panel, then I go to Uninstall programs. I cannot find the frostwire program. Would it be listed under another name?

  • What Frostwire version are you using?
    • Click Start > All Programs > Accessories
    • Click Run
    • If you are using FrostWire 5, type this in the run dialogue:
      %programfiles%\Frostwire 5\Uninstall.exe
      
    • If you are using Frostwire 4 it may be this:
      %programfiles\Frostwire\Uninstall.exe
      


    Hope I helped.
  • When I open the Windows Task Manager and then open "Processes", I can see Frostwire.exe. I tried what you told me, but it didn't work. I just can't see the "Frostwire" name under where all the programs are listed to uninstall...very frustrating.

    Why didn't it work?
  • The Frostwire 5 program is identified in Windows as FrostWire5


    We do sometimes suggest this to completely remove all traces of Frostwire. To do this use Revo Uninstaller or a similar program since Windows uninstaller in the Control Panel fails to do the job thoroughly. Revo will locate additional related files which need to be removed.

    Before doing this ensure you have a back up of the files in your save and shared folders, (if you have any from Frostwire 4) as well as your Torrent Data folder, or at least remove them to your desktop or somewhere similar, just to be on the safe side. The Torrent Data folder's location is given at Tools > Options Bit Torrent > (Basic) > Torrent Data Save Folder. The other folders are in that FrostWire folder.

    That may help.
