How to Delete Blue Coat

Save

Your Blue Coat K9 Web Protection software is an internet filtering and monitoring application. The internet poses a vast array of threats to unsuspecting children and families. If you have used Blue Coat software to help protect your children when browsing the web and you are now ready to remove it, the installation process can be completed in just a few steps. Be sure that you have your administrative password available before beginning the uninstall process; it is required. You can request a temporary password during the process if you have misplaced your account password.

Things You'll Need

  • Blue Coat administrative account password
  • Verify that your internet connection is active before beginning the uninstall process. Your software license will be released during the uninstall process, and an internet connection is required for this step. If you do not have an active internet connection, the license will not be released and you will need to request a new license if you choose to reinstall the application at a later date.

  • Click “Start” and then “Control Panel.” If you do not see the Control Panel option, click “Settings” to locate it in the Settings menu.

  • Click “Add/Remove Programs” in the Windows Control Panel. Wait for the application list to populate. This can take a few minutes if you have a lot of software installed on your computer. Locate and click the Blue Coat K9 Web Protection listing in the application list. Click “Change/Remove” to uninstall the application.

  • Click “Yes” when asked to confirm that you want to uninstall K9 Web Protection. Enter the administrative password for your Blue Coat software when prompted and click “Uninstall.”

  • Click “Forgot Password…” if you cannot remember your administrative password. You will receive a temporary password which will be sent to the email account on file with Blue Coat.

  • Click “Yes” when prompted to reboot your computer. The application will be completely uninstalled after the reboot is complete because the reboot clears the remaining files from the system memory.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you attempt to uninstall Blue Coat K9 Web Protection without the administrative password, the uninstall will fail and the application will disable the internet connection on the computer.
