Install Shield Update Manager Uninstall?

| Comments

So…

It's been bugging me for some time that I have this application running in the background on my machine, "Install Shield Update Manager". It isn't as useful as it would like to be and I am unimpressed that I had to download a 2.2MB application just to remove it . I think about the waste, how periodically commercial software is updated and then realise that I don't need something in the background wasting my systems resources.

I've used their feedback to tell them as much and I've removed it, hopefully.

Grrr. 

Update:

Now I am truely p*ssed off, I read on here and found that apparently the "uninstaller" doesn't do anything except hide the "Update Manager" even further. Inspecting my task list with Process Explorer I find it still there. Terminate with extreme violence!
