Remove WildTangent And Update

Every time i buy a new laptop or PC see that wildtangent always comes preinstalled, these are my notes on how to remove this annoying program from your computer.

I wanted to remove WildTangent because ever since i bought an HP laptop back in the 1990s it has always comes pre-installed. then 6 years i bought a toshiba laptop, and sure enough, WildTangent was pre-installed.

last week i bought a Republic of Gamers from ASUS, and also came with WildTangent installed.

so these are my notes to remove all the associated files. at first, you might think, well, if i just go to the control panel and uninstalled it that should be it, well, not, because after you have removed the program from you pc, you still have files behind, these are the steps i took

Remove WildTangent Steps

1. remove wildtangent from the Programs and Features: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features
2. C:\Program Files (x86)
3. C:\Users\[USERName]\Favorites\Games
4. C:\Users\[USERName]\AppData\Roaming
5. C:\ProgramData\

NOTE: [USERName] whatever your username is in your computer

if you do a search in your computer, you will not see anymore files,...also, depending on the version you have installed, some of the folder might have already been deleted by the installer automatically.

Update WIndows

as a last step, make sure you update your windows, go to the control panel and do a windows update check to make sure you have the latest Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2 x64 Edition - October 2016 (KB890830)

if your computer came pre-installed with this annoying program, please let me know what manufacturere and model of your computer so i can write a letter to these companies to stop installing these unwanted and annoying spyware computer program on our computers because we dont want them.

thanks, hope that helps
