How to remove arcsoft connect

Updated March 23, 2017

ArcSoft Connect is the update and information service application that is bundled with ArcSoft software. When you install an ArcSoft multimedia application on your computer, the ArcSoft Connect software will automatically launch. The application runs continually in the background, and you can access it from its icon in the system tray on the taskbar. Because the application is always running in the background, it can contribute to a decrease in your computer's processing speed. To stop ArcSoft Connect from running, use the System Configuration utility. To remove the application from your computer, you need to delete all ArcSoft programs on your system.

Click "Start" and then type "msconfig" into the search bar.

Select "msconfig" from the results list and then click the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration window.

Clear the check box next to "ArcSoft" from the list of start-up items.

Click the "OK" button and then click "Restart" in the pop-up message box. The computer will automatically restart without launching the ArcSoft Connect software.

Click "Start" and then select "Control Panel."

Click "Programs" and then click "Programs and Features."

Scroll down the list of programs and right-click on any program that contains the word "ArcSoft."

Select "Uninstall" from the pop-up menu. The system will automatically remove the ArcSoft application. Repeat the process to remove any other ArcSoft applications on your computer.
