I'm running windows 10 and used IOBit to uninstall Google Earth v 7.1.8.3036

 

Google Earth does not show up in IObit uninstaller or in Windows uninstall programs list since then.   But suddenly the shortcut for it showed up on my desktop and the program runs perfectly.

 

If anyone has a suggestion for how to get rid of this monstrosity, please let me know!

 

Thanks in advance!

 

MK

Hi MK, 

 

you can use AppFalcon Force Removal to uninstall programs not listed as installed:

1. Download AppFalcon - it is a fully functional 14-Day free trial, so you do not have to buy it in order to use it

2. Click Delete Apps

3. Enter Google Earth in the name field

4. click Add files and add the Google Earth shortcut from your desktop

5. Press Scan - it will scan Windows registry and file system to find all leftovers of Google Earth 

6. Select and delete the leftovers

 

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know!
