Annoying bundleware pushed you to completely delete Hotspot Shield from your computer? Well, this post is for you. Meanwhile, I would like to recommend Privax's HMA software to you guys: the said solution is clean, more safe and more professional for regular users. For example, HMA does not make any changes to your browser programs, while Hotspot Shield installs an add-on, named "Hotspot Shield extension 3.23" to end-users' Firefox.
To completely REMOVE Hotspot Shield, you do the following: - remove the main VPN client from programs list. - uninstall other 2 optional apps, RealPlayer and Google's Chrome.
