For example, if, you’re also having trouble uninstalling or upgrading Adobe’s Flash Player, or aren’t a fan of it, this would the another best chance to archive your goal. Moreover, seems that AFP has come a long way with security. And, that Adobe product has hugely expanded the reach of the security mechanism in Windows & Mac making it more efficient at protecting inexperienced users from malicious codes.

  1. Now, let’s talk about the simplified Smite uninstall instructions and, I recommend that you now save everything that you wish to reuse later and, make yourself the Admin now.
  2. In order to remove SMITE w/ ease, follow the extra steps given below – quit SMITE properly:
    • Press the "Esc" key on your own keyboard.
    • Then, you launch the "EXIT GAME" option at the bottom of the menu below.
    • You then need to confirm your request to quit SMITE: hit the blue OK button on the following "EXIT GAME" window.
  3. Then heading to "Programs & Features" in Control Panel is known as one of the most common method used for uninstalling SMITE, and/or any other unwanted projects on a Windows based operating system:
    • Double hit Cpanel, if you’ve saved it on your own desktop.
    • You then, of course, choose the "Uninstall a program" section later.
    • Check your own "Uninstall or change a program" list. You first sort the list by clicking on the "Installed On" tab and, you locate the unneeded or problematic Smite item (* Take the v2.20.3138.0 as an example here) in the list.
    • Now, you can hit the Enter key or, you hit the "Uninstall" tab on the list.
    • To automatically uninstall Smite on your computer, you then choose the Yes option from the Uninstall window below.
    • Please, be patient while InstallShield Wizard helps process your request to uninstall Smite.
    • Now, you press the Yes button on the said Wizard window, letting InstallWizard help uninstall Smite on your computer.
    • Sit tight while InstallWizard is removing Smite by Hi-Rez Studios.
    • Exit the aforementioned InstallShield Wizard when it completes Smite removal.
    • Reload your own programs list later, ensuring that you’ve uninstalled the main application Smite successfully. Yet, a clean uninstall of Smite is far from complete. How much time do you take to uninstall Smite? Feel free to post your own response to this Smite removal guide. Learn more?

[Optional] How to completely uninstall Smite on your Windows?

I tend to help you get rid of Smite thoroughly and, to increase your system performance on the go, always. Because, to set up Smite successfully or, to gain the best possible game experience, Hi-Rez fans install the following components, but, those projects would def. make your computer a much less productive one after the Smite removal. Below are just the items you should consider wiping off when wanting to uninstall Smite completely:

  • Adobe Flash Player (v10.3.183.90)
  • Hi-Rez Studios Authenticate and Update Service (v3.0.0.0)
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistributable – 10.0.40219
  • Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x64) – 11.0.61030
  • Microsoft .NET FrameWork 4 Extended (v4.0.30319)
  • .NET Framework 4 Client Profile (v4.0.30319)

For a little extra motivation, you too have a chance to take your computer skills to the next level in this article. Yes! The good news is that you might be able to delete ’em in the list one by one. The bad news is that Windows Registry Editor would be involved. More bad news is that they would leave plenty of remains in your system, and the process could be energy-consuming. Just make sure to:

  • You now make a full registry backup, and save it on a non-system disk
  • Then you should consider saving all the things that matter your WWW world, e.g., your Hi-Rez account information, your game settings/profile(s).

As usual, to make it easier for you – instead of launching "Uninstall or change a program" manually, you can now perform the time-consuming uninstall process the efficient way, and avoid any other issues removing those unused programs due to some reason: simply download the application uninstaller PRO on your own Windows, if you are inexperienced at configuring your system.

Other Top Queries from Google: Problems installing Smite

Case #1: "Can’t uninstall, reinstall smite or Hi-Rez"!

Solutions offered by SmiteGame.com forum members:

  • Run the aforementioned ManualUninstallHiRezLauncher.exe (aka, "Last Resort Uninstaller" or LRU), which was created by a Hi-Rez rep, to remove Smite. (* Remember to produce a restore point and, restart your comp after your request is completed). Be noted that, the version "does not remove all registry keys in smite".
  • Run an application uninstaller (* it’d be, of course, NOT that messy)
  • Force Hi-Rez’s stuff to go: end related processes by using WTM, then manually delete Hi-Rez’s installation folder

Case #2: Unable to install Smite (on Windows 10)

Possible fixes:

  • Temporarily disable MSE (* Microsoft Security Essentials) and/or any other Anti-Virus program you have, such as Kaspersky, Comodo. Re-enable your virus protection later after Smite install is complete.
  • Move the downloaded setup file to another computer, re-perform the install process as Admin
  • Use the latest SMITE installer – which would help address potential SW compatibility problems, and you would have the ability to play the game later.
  • Re-enable Hi-Rez Studios Authenticate in the Service list manually
