How to uninstall FreeGuide on Windows

You can uninstall FreeGuide on Windows by going to the "Add/Remove Programs" screen in the Control Panel. That should be all you need to do.

However, uninstalling FreeGuide leaves your settings (such as favourites, colours etc.) on your computer. Often, this is useful, since if you ever re-install FreeGuide it will already be set up for you, but sometimes you might want to delete these settings, for example if something has gone wrong and you want to start again from scratch, or if you just don't like programs leaving stuff all over your computer.

To remove the FreeGuide settings from the Windows registry, follow these instructions:

WARNING: messing with the registry can break your computer! Don't do it if you're not confident.
  • First, uninstall FreeGuide from the Add/Remove Programs screen. (Under Control Panel).
  • Click the Start button then "Run".
  • Type "regedit" and press Return.
  • In the menu at the top chose "Edit" and click "Find"
  • Make sure all three "look at" boxes are checked.
  • Type "freeguide-tv" in the search box.
  • Click "Find Next".
  • Regedit should find a node called freeguide-tv. Right-click the node and choose "Delete".
  • Now press F3 on the keyboard to find any other nodes also called freeguide-tv, and delete all of them in the same way.

This should remove all trace of FreeGuide from your computer.
