I downloaded the Windows performance toolkit last week. I couldn't figure out how to use it properly, it kept hanging.

 

I uninstalled all the components but there are still remnants left behind.

 

How to I get rid of it?

You should have opened the Control Panel and select Programs and Features.  You should see the application in there, right click on the app. and uninstall it.

 

How did you go about removing this?

I went to Control Panel, Programs, Uninstall a Program. There wasn't just one program, there were 4 installed on the same day, so I uninstalled all 4.

 

When I turn on my computer, I get weird errors saying that some dll file is missing that has to do with Windows Performance Toolkit.

When I start up my computer, I get a RunDLL Error:

There was a problem starting C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Windows Performance Toolkit\WindowsPerformanceRecorderUI.dll

The specified module could not be found.

You can remove it using the Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit - Should I Remove It?

I read the article. What do I do with this info?

 

Uninstaller: MsiExec.exe /I{E7F9E526-2324-437B-A609-E8C5309465CB}

 

I already uninstalled the program, so this uninstaller is not in my computer. This error pops up every time I start up my computer.

When the site opens there is a blue box with white lettering which reads "Remove Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit".  If you click on this it will download the Should I Remove It?  Use this programs to remove the Windows Performance Toolkit.

 

After the download open the program.  You will see a image like the one below showing the programs you have installed.  Click/tap on the program you wish to remove, a box will open with the option to Uninstall, click/tap on Uninstall to remove it.

I downloaded the program you suggested. Windows Performance Toolkit was not listed as one of the installed programs.
