Clean uninstall?

Post by jfsturtz »

I attempted to uninstall MediaMonkey5 using the standard uninstall through Win 11 Settings. But it doesn't seem to be a clean uninstall.

For starters, if I right-click on a .mp3 file in Windows Explorer and choose Open With->Choose Another App, "C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey5\MediaMonkey.exe" still appears under Suggested Apps.

Looking through my registry, I see that there are still bewilderingly many references to MediaMonkey. Any way to fix this?

Thanks!

A registry cleaner like CCleaner should be able to fix that.

IMO, CCCleaner should not be needed ... MMW should cleanup stuff that it puts in the registry on uninstall.

According to https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/kno ... diamonkey/, all file associations should be removed.

I also noticed that firewall rules for MMW are also left in place ... shouldn't these be removed too?

Thanks.
