I'm trying to uninstall K9 from a Windows Vista 32-bit computer, and I do not have the K9 admin password or know the K9 admin email. I do however have administrative access to the computer. I also can install Cygwin or boot to a live USB if that would help. Is there any way to uninstall this program without the password and email information?
Edit: I forgot to mention that I tried several methods to uninstall, and so far none have worked:
- I tried the usual uninstall method from control panel.
- I tried reinstalling K9 and then trying to uninstall.
- I tried disabling K9 from
- I tried installing my own license file like it says in this link (K9 doesn't allow you to download license files anymore).
- I tried deleting
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\bckd.sysand restarting the computer.
Edit 2: Please no conjecture about why I need to remove this or who installed it. I am attempting to uninstall it from a friend's computer. No one's parents were involved in installing this program, and I'm not trying to go behind anyone's back or anything like that.
I figured it out and the answer is below, with one caveat: it requires paid software (albeit a free trial of paid software if you have never used it before). I wish I could give an answer using free software, but this is the only solution that worked so far. If anyone has a method that is simpler or doesn't require the use of paid software, feel free to post it, and I'll try it out and select it as the answer if it works. and31415 has posted an answer which requires no extra (paid) software.
