Uninstal MemTurbo II

  johnpalmer 10:46 20 Sep 2003

I succumbed to a pop up advert/offer for MemTurbo II, promising dramatic improvements in PC performance & NO crashes.

Needless to say, I have seen no difference at all.

I have asked for a refund, but I have had to promise to un-install the software.

The problem is I cannot find any uninstall methods.

There is no icon in my START-PROGRAMS menu, and nothing related in my CONTROL PANEL-ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS.

Do I just close the application and delete, or what.

Thanks holly polly

I have recently had to re-load my Windows ME software, and as I had installed memturbo prior to this, I have now found it in the backup I took.

Until you mentioned silicon prairie, I had no idea to look for this and was only searching for memturbo in my run/search for files facility.

In the backup/siliconprairie/memturbo, I have found the uninstall file, which I have moved back into the programme files prior to deletion.

Thanks for the help, although I still think the software is useless for me, as most of my computer use is on the internet, and probably NetTurbo would be more suitable.

My access to the net is via ADSL and bloody quick already.

mem turbo has nothing to do with conn speed it is a application designed to keep your appl running smoothly ,as mentioned above it works by recovering non essential ram ,have you noticed sometimeas your running apll start to run slow, well mem turbo works by making sure you never run short of ram ,if you purchased this piece of software for faster surfing etc ,then im sorry you have been misled-best regards-hol pol..
