How to Uninstall Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC

by David Wayne

Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC includes an uninstaller that deletes all the registry entries, application data and program files created in your system folder during the installation. You can find this helper application in the Control Panel, on your Start screen or in your Applications menu. After running the uninstaller, confirm that it removed all the associated files by looking inside the Uniblue folders within the App Data and Program Files directories, and then restart your PC to stop any still-running SpeedUpMyPC processes.

1

Right-click the “SpeedUpMyPC” tray icon and select “Exit.” This halts most of the program's processes, although a few may continue to run until you restart your computer.

2

Right-click the “SpeedUpMyPC” Start screen icon and select “Uninstall” from the context menu. The program uninstaller opens. If your Start screen doesn't display the SpeedUpMyPC icon, click “Programs and Features” in the Control Panel, select “SpeedUpMyPC” from the list of applications, and then click “Uninstall.”

3

Click “Yes” when prompted to remove the program. After about a minute, when the removal completes, close Control Panel.

4

Press “Windows-R” to open the Run dialog, type “%appdata%” (without quotes, here and throughout), and then press “Enter” to open the App Data folder. Navigate to the Uniblue directory, and then delete the SpeedUpMyPC folder, if it exists.

5

Open the Run dialog again, and then enter “%programfiles%” at the prompt. If it exists, delete the SpeedUpMyPC folder within the Uniblue directory.

6

Restart your computer, log in to Windows, and then confirm that the system tray doesn't display the SpeedUpMyPC icon. If you have multiple Uniblue program installed, the tray may display a different Uniblue icon. To uninstall all Uniblue programs, follow the removal steps for each installed application, and then restart your computer.

Tips

  • check If you're removing all Uniblue programs, confirm that no Uniblue processes are still running after you restart your computer. Press “Windows-X,” click “Task Manager,” and then confirm that the Task Manager window doesn't list any of the following processes:
  • check driverscanner.exe
  • check dsmonitor.exe
  • check dsnotifier.exe
  • check maxidisk.exe
  • check mdmonitor.exe
  • check powersuite.exe
  • check powersuite_monitor.exe
  • check powersuite_service.exe
  • check rbmonitor.exe
  • check rbnotifier.exe
  • check registrybooster.exe
  • check spmonitor.exe
  • check spnotifier.exe
  • check sump.exe
  • check systemtweaker.exe
  • check Because all of these files exist in the Uniblue program directories you deleted in Steps 4 and 5, they don't run at startup after the removal.

Warning

  • close Information in this article applies to Windows 8.1 and Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC 2014. It may vary slightly or significantly with other versions or products.
