I installed Freecorder and decided to uninstall it. I used the Add/Remove Programs method. Freecorder is uninstalled yet the toolbar remains. In the C:/WINDOWS folder there is a Freecorder folder with an uninstall icon. When I click on it I get an error message of invalid start up: archive filename.

How can I uninstall this toolbar?

Hello and welcome. Try with the free version of Revo Uninstaller:

Please download the Revo Uninstaller to your desktop.

Note ---> Scroll down the page and be sure to download the "freeware" version not the "30d fully functional free trial, called Proffessional"

  • Double click Revo.exe to install and run.
  • Highlight XXXX.
  • Choose Uninstall.
  • Are you sure - Yes
  • Mode - Advanced
  • Are you sure - Yes
  • Initial Uninstall - Next
  • Scanning for leftovers - Next
  • Check the bolded box only!!!! <--- Important!!
  • Delete
  • Yes
  • Finish

Once the install is done,a window opens with all the icons for installed Applications. Look thru them for Freecorder and highlight that icon.

Freecorder isn't installed any longer. I uninstalled, yet the toolbar remains. That's the problem.

Hi Bleedo. It looks like an incomplete removal. There's no longer an icon? Doing a search for freecorder produces any files?
If you enter freevorder in the textbar of REVO it should find any leftovers

No icon and entering freecorder in the revo search doesn't yield any leftovers. The only thing left is the Freecorder folder in the C:/WINDOWS folder that contains an uninstall icon that gives me an "invalid start up: archive filename" error message when I try to open it.

Uggh, my last idea.. reinstall it and then let Revo Uninstall all of it.

I realize that it has been a long time since the original post on this matter, but I just came across it yesterday --- perhaps this will help for present and future reference.

Here’s what worked for me:

1} Perform a Start Menu Search for “Conduit Ltd” (just the word “conduit” may

work); then delete or uninstall any and all files that have “Conduit Ltd”

associated with them; then open the Programs and Features folder in your

Control Panel and uninstall the Freecorder Toolbar.

Conduit Ltd is apparently associated with the installation process for Freecorder and a number of other downloadable software applications, and it has a propensity for installing potentially harmful add-ons EVEN if you indicate that you wish to DECLINE them. I would suggest that if you’re preparing to download or install software and the word “Conduit” appears, then kill the process and search anew.

BTW, I have been using Freecorder5 and 6 for about 2 years, with no problems

(I really like the version 5 downloader), and getting rid of the Conduit Ltd file

(it was an executable titled “uninstall”) has not affected the performance of either application.
