Solved how to uninstall 3rd party PasswordBox program

March 13, 2014 at 21:43:16
Specs: Windows Vista
Hello,

Vista is my OS.
I want to uninstall passwordbox. It is not listed in my programs list or program files.
The only place I see it is in addons/extensions in Chrome and Firefox. I have used the service so it is installed but I now want to uninstall.
passwordbox website says to use add/remove programs to uninstall.
Anyone know how to uninstall?
Thanks for your time and help.

Passwordbox only appears as an extension within your browsers so you disable them individually.

In Internet Explorer click on the 'Tools' icon (looks like a cogwheel) and choose 'manage add-ons'. Under 'Extensions' disable Passwordbox then click on 'more information' and click on 'remove'. If 'remove' is greyed out close Internet Explorer and, from the start menu, restart it with no-addons. Go back into the tools menu, look for Passwordbox and click on 'more information' again and the 'remove' button should be available.

In Google Chrome click on the tools menu (3 horizontal bars) and choose 'settings' then 'extensions' - Passwordbox should have a trashcan icon to it's right, simply click on that.

Firefox is similar to chrome - under the 'tools' menu select 'add-ons' then 'extensions' and remove it there.

Did you try uninstalling it through 'programs and features'?:

If you can't get it uninstalled that way you can try Revo:

You might want the freeware version. Click the 'downloads' tab and scroll to the bottom of the page for that.

Download and run adwcleaner:

(the blue download button; not the green one.) See if that clears it out. You can also try malwarebytes:

Will these steps completly remove PasswordBox?

You ought to do the same on any other browsers you have, such as Internet Explorer.

EDIT: Sorry - not sure what post I was answering.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Using the trashcan icon will remove it as far as the user is concerned, and if you did set up an account with it you will also need to deactivate that - check the help pages for more information: https://help.passwordbox.com/ . Because it is an add-on for each browser as I and Derek mention you will need to remove it from any other browsers on your system if you want rid of it completely. The product appears to be a genuine bit of software and there don't seem to be any issues with it.
