Windows 7: How do I uninstall Razer Game Booster?

How do I uninstall Razer Game Booster?

So a few weeks ago, I decided to try Razer Game Booster (version 4.0.68.0) to see if it would improve my gaming experience. I'm unsatisfied with it, so I'm trying to uninstall it. However, when I go to the Control Panel and look for in the Uninstall/Change Change Program section, it's not in the list. I looked carefully through it, and I can't find it anywhere. I looked through the user manual for Razer Game Booster, and it says you can just simply uninstall it in the Control Panel. Except, you know, I can't. At all.

I tried looking up "Uninstalling Razer Game Booster" on Google, but the only thing I found was a YouTube video referring to a much older version of the program. I could not find anything about uninstalling the program through any other method(s).

I finally tried just deleting the folder that the program is located in, except I got a message saying "This action cannot be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program." Except I used Windows Task Manager and selected "End process" for it, so it's not being used anywhere on my computer.

So I'm kind of stuck. How can I uninstall this piece of junk?

It could be that any number of programs ( games, Steam etc) are sharing files with Game Booster. Try booting into Safe Mode and uninstall it that way. The other option would be a Restore Point to before it was installed.

As to what was already suggested with safe mode,

See here:

You could also try revo uninstaller:

Have you tried installing the game again to see if you get an option like... Repair or Remove? I have been in the same predicament you are with other apps, software or game and this works.

So I entered Safe Mode and while I still wasn't able to properly uninstall it, I managed to just delete the entire folder it belonged in. It should be gone now. Thank you. <3
