How to Get Rid of Freenet


The Freenet Project is a way to share files within a group with anonymity. Once you have downloaded the software, it uses some of your computer's disc space. These files are encrypted, generally to the point where you don't even know what you are hosting. The users of the Freenet Project can ask for and receive files and programs from each other. The requests and the transfers are anonymous. The anonymous nature of the project makes it a tool that has been used in countries that have censorship issues. However, like any downloaded program, you may eventually want to uninstall it.

  • Open "start" menu and go to "Run." Enter: cmd

  • Change the directory to the Freenet directory. This directory will be whatever you named it during the install process. Some common options include: C:\Program\Freenet\, C:\Program\Files\Freenet\, C:\Freenet\

  • Type "stop.cmd" to ensure that the service is not currently running. The uninstall requires the program not to be running in order to work.

  • Type "bin\wrapper-windows-x86-32.exe -r ..\wrapper.conf" (without the quotes) in the cmd window to remove the windows service.

  • Select the "freenet" folder and delete.
