Tencent QQ removal instructions

Tencent QQ is installed


Tencent QQ is an anti-virus tool, developed by Chinese company Shenzhen Limited. This tool is completely free, and even useful, but it is so, only if you speak Chinese! Yes, you’re right, it has no localization. So, average users from America and Europe are barely able to close Tencent’s main window. Of course, there’s no way to get through all the windows, options and checkboxes, and remove Tencent QQ without knowing the language. The installation of this program, contrariwise, goes very stealthy. You won’t know about it, until you see the first window with weird hieroglyphs. Tencent QQ comes in bundles with other software, and you can download it accidently, but it will take a lot of time and frustration to remove it. You need to perform a few steps to remove Tencent QQ from your PC, and to ensure, that you have no another malicious software on board.

Step 1. Remove software from Control Panel

Tencent can be removed from Control Panel as other programs.

  • 1. Start
  • 2. Control Panel
  • 3. Programs and features
  • 4. Uninstall a program
  • 5. Select program with Chinise
  • 6. Press Uninstall
  • 7. Follow the instructions (lower in the article we add pictures)


Step 2. Uninstall Tencent using its own uninstaller

Remove Tencent QQ through Uninst.exe file in the root folder of Tencent QQ. There are lots of versions of this program, and the developers use different methods in each one of them. Some versions hide the uninstall.exe file, in some versions you can’t find Tencent in CCleaner, and in the Windows list of programs. This part of our guide will be useful, if you can’t initiate the removal from Control Panel.

Where exactly is the uninstall file for tencent QQ?

  • Go to Disc C:\
  • Click Program Files (x86) (if you use the 32-bit version of Windows, it will be just “Program Files”)
  • Go to Tencent\QQPCMgr
  • Here you should find a folder whose name is made up of numbers. The numbers mean the version of the program, in my case it was 11.4.17335.21.

  • Press the lower left button, and congratulations! This is it, Tencent QQ is removed! Repeat this steps with all components of program, and you will be finally free from that mess.

Step 3. Scan computer with anti-malware

As we said earlier, Tencent QQ isn’t a virus, it’s the package of useful software, whose only drowback is the lack of localization. But if it isn’t malware, how could anti-viruses remove it? Good anti-viral tool detects not only malware, but also the programs, which perform their functions without user’s knowledge. Exactly as Tencent, which installs without a permission and comes back after an incorrect deletion. This Tencent QQ’s feature is the most annoying, but it gives us a chance to detect and remove it as an unwanted program. So, when you manually removed Tencent QQ, you should download Spyhunter or AdwCleaner, and perform the full scan. If the scanning will show no threats – then your PC is totally clean, and ready for work.
