Cannot uninstall Frostwire

Recommended Posts

On a friend's computer running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Frostwire always appears on startup.

He doesn't want it on there anymore, and I was trying to help him remove it because it slows the computer and internet, and is unsafe etc.

I exit out of frostwire, it shuts down fine and quits. Then I go to control panel and go to add/remove applications. I select Frostwire, and click the "Change/remove" button. Nothing happens. If you wait a while and click it again, it says "Please wait for the current uninstaller to finish", but it's not showing anything.

When attempting to uninstall, all other programs freeze even though there is ~2.7GB of memory free, an the CPU is using 3% power or so. Everything is just unresponsive and task manager cannot kill any process.

Any ideas? I guess I could just delete the startup key and then manually delete all the files and folders and registry entries but that seems like a pain and I would have to lookup where everything is...

Thanks for the help,
