How to Remove a PowerDirector Trial

Updated July 19, 2017

CyberLink PowerDirector is a high-definition video editing program with native support for 64-bit processors and operating systems. The price for the basic version of the program is approximately £45 at the date of publication, but CyberLink has a trial version that you can download for free. The PowerDirector trial adds a watermark to videos that you create, and must be purchased or removed from the computer after 30 days. If you've decided not to purchase the full version of PowerDirector, you can remove the trial version from your computer.

Open the Start menu and click the "Control Panel" icon.

Click "Programs and Features" or "Uninstall a Program."

Click "CyberLink PowerDirector. Then click the "Uninstall" button. The prompt "This will remove CyberLink PowerDirector from your computer. Do you wish to proceed?" appears.

Click "Yes." The InstallShield Wizard removes the CyberLink PowerDirector trial from the computer and displays the message "InstallShield Wizard Complete" when it is finished.

Click the "Finish" button.


When the CyberLink PowerDirector trial is installed on the computer, it offers to install Apple QuickTime and SmartSound Quicktracks as well. If you installed these optional components, you can remove them using the same steps that you used to uninstall the PowerDirector trial.
