    How do I uninstall FLEXnet Connect Software Manager?


    I installed Roxio easy CD&DVD burning and it installed FLEXnet Connect Agent and FLEXnet Connect Software Manager. I Can't find anyway to uninstall this. Could I just delete C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet and C:\ProgramData\Macrovision\FLEXnet Connect?

    Please help!

    A specific tool is suggested here though I know nothing of it:
    uninstall - Removing FLEXnet Connect Update Manager - Super User

    Revo Uninstaller (free/commercial) would be my first thought - as there's no uninstaller, you need to click 'Forced Uninstall' and browse to the program's exe file as suggested here:

    I think I'll wait until the sysrestore problem is fixed before I try those, just in case something goes wrong. I've disabled it in task manager, so hopefully it stays disabled until then.

    Just wondering who you expect to fix whichever system restore problem you're referring to.
    If it's 80070091 (appstaging) there's a very long thread which started where a solution -a bit involved- seems to have been found.
    (Mine started working by itself a few weeks later).

    N.B. You should consider using disk imaging routinely. That's what we strongly and repeatedly recommend- far more complete, robust, reliable than system restore, which is fine if it works. Some experienced users here have discarded it.

    Here's my write-up on the value of disk imaging.
    (There's a tutorial on Macrium in the Tutorials section, and a couple of videos in the user videos section on this forum)
    Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect - Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials
    Windows 10 instructional videos by Ten Forums members

    Creating disk images lets you restore Windows and all your disks and partitions to a previous working state, quickly and probably without technical help.

    You can recover from:
    - a failed disk drive (restore to a new one)
    - ransomware (which encrypts your disk)
    - user error
    - unrecoverable problems from failed updates to problem programs
    - unbootable PC (hardware faults aside)

    Images also act as a full backup- you can extract files too.

    You can even use images to help you move more easily and quickly to a new PC.
    Can be used with Laplink software to transfer your build automatically to another PC

    Imaging can even help you sleep at night knowing you have a second chance.

    Many here recommend Macrium Reflect (free) as a good robust solution and more reliable than some others. It’s
    - more feature rich
    - more flexible
    - more reliable
    than Windows Backup and Restore system images.

    It's well supported with videos, help and a responsive forum.

    There are other such programs, free/commercial, some with simpler interfaces, but Macrium R is one of the most robust and reliable.

    How long does it take?
    SSD+ USB3 - maybe 15 mins for the first system image, less thereafter
    HDD + USB2 - maybe 40-50 mins
    That’s with little personal data, few programs installed.
    - of course, depends how much you have on C:
    (You can and should image all your partitions and disks)

    Once you've created your first image, keep it updated with e.g. differential imaging- which images just changes from the first image, more quickly, and creates a smaller image file.

    You need a backup medium - say- twice as large as the total amount of data you are imaging to keep a reasonable number of differential images. This will vary dependent on the number of images you keep, so is only a rough practical guide.

    Some comment that system restore isn't always reliable; if it works and solves the problem, great. But sometimes restores won't work or fail. And of course a restore point only covers a limited number of aspects of the system. That’s where disk imaging comes in.
