Binary vortex is such a great newsgroup downloading tool that nobody would ever want to remove it from their computer! Nevertheless should you desire to do so, here are some instructions.
Removing Downloaded Files
The binary vortex uninstall program doesn’t remove the files you’ve downloaded. This is because we assume that most people who have downloaded images don’t want them inadvertently wiped from their hard drive unexpectedly. It’s easy enough to do this manually.
- Open up Binary Vortex
- From the first page (Step #1: Set your identity and download options), click the <Explore> button.
- This will launch the windows explorer on the binary vortex download directory. You can get rid of the folders with any of the usual windows techniques — click folders and press the del key, right click folders and select delete from the drop-down menu, etc. I’m going to assume you know how to delete folders!
Removing the Binary Vortex Program
Microsoft changes the way undelete works just a little bit in every version of windows, so it depends a little bit:
- Windows 95/98/ME. Hell, I don’t even remember. I seem to recall it looked a lot like the Windows XP instructions below.
- Windows XP. Press the start button. Open the control panel. Find “Add or Remove Programs” and open it. Scroll down to Binary Vortex and click the remove button.
- Windows Vista. Press the start button. Open the control panel. Find the section called “Programs” and the link under it called “uninstall a program” and click it. Scroll down to Binary Vortex and double-click to uninstall. [Note: This assumes your using the default view in the control panel. If you're using the "classic view", then it looks much like the Windows XP instructions above]
- Windows 7. Press the start button. Open the control panel. One of the major subsections is called “Programs” and under it is a small link called “uninstall a program”. click that. Scroll down to Binary Vortex and double click it.
