How to remove Logitech Easy Synchronization and bluetooth

To bypass my rant, scroll to the bottom of this post to see the quick solution.

I’ve quickly learned to dislike how Logitech engineers their software for their wireless keyboard and mouse systems.

Once again, this is a case of yet another software “suite” that does so much more than we want or need. Adding a mouse and keyboard apparently requires several services and background tasks running that do provide more clutter. It seems that everyone wants to jump on this bandwagon. I dare you to install a Logitech device, Roxio CD/DVD creator, Apple iTunes, and Norton Antivirus. You’ll have at least a dozen system processes running everywhere, slowing things down.

(Wait for it… can you hear it? The hoofbeats of several company men who work for one of the above-mentioned firms to pick apart every comma and period above to inform us all that their software is really great, despite all the crap it loads? Wait for it… they show up like a cloud of bees every time.)

It’s high time that software manufacturers STOP MAKING “SUITES” and begin putting together highly-focused, simple software that simply does the job well. Rather than several individual processes designed for every possible scenario (I’m talking to you, Apple) just give us a program that works only when it’s open, and unloads itself when we’re done. Please?

Okay, there’s my rant. Here’s the promised solution to removing that infernal “Easy Synchronization” program.

1. Copy this line:

RunDll32 C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\INSTAL~1\PROFES~1\RunTime\0701\Intel32\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup “C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{AC134D03-97F1-45B9-B32A-52E885AFA895}\setup.exe” -l0x9

(make sure it copies all as one line, and not several individual lines.)

2. Now press Windows-R on your keyboard (or go to the start menu and click “Run”.

3. Paste the line you just copied into the Run box and hit enter.
The uninstall process will begin.

4. Yay!
