How to Remove Blackberry Software


Research In Motion makes a series of smartphones under the BlackBerry name. One of the features of all BlackBerry phones is the ability to connect to and sync with a PC using a program called BlackBerry Desktop Manager. This program, however, is only useful with BlackBerry phones. This means that if you are no longer using a BlackBerry phone, you may want to remove the software that supported the phone.

Deleting the main program

  • Go to the "Start Menu" and click on "Control Panel" in the menu that appears.

  • Double-click on "Add/Remove Programs."

  • Click on the "BlackBerry Desktop Manager" icon and click the "Uninstall button" that appears.

Deleting the registry entries

  • Go to the Start Menu and click on "Run."

  • Type "regedit" into the box that appears to open up the registry editor.

  • Click the plus sign next to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," then the one next to "Software."

  • Right-click on the "Research in motion" folder and click "Delete."

  • Click the "Minus" button next to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," then click the "Plus" signs for "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" and "Software." Delete the "Research In Motion" folder there in the same manner as you did in Step 4.

Delete the physical folders

  • Go to "My Computer" and double-click "C:" in the window that appears.

  • Double-click the "Program Files."

  • Right-Click the "Research In Motion" folder and click "Delete."

  • Double-Click on "Common Files" then delete the "PUMATECH" folder.

  • Restart your computer.

Tips & Warnings

  • Mistakes in editing the registry could damage your PC. Do not perform the section to edit the registry if you do not feel comfortable doing so.
