Uninstalling X9 or X8 Software

To properly uninstall your Intego software it is important that you use the latest Installer for your software. If you have manually attempted to remove the software, you will need to first, reinstall the software again, then use the Installer package to properly remove the applications and NetUpdate icon from the menu bar. If you do not have an Intego Installer available you can download one from here:


Select the installer you would like to download from the Latest Updates Menu and click the green "Download" button.

If you already own Intego software and plan on reinstalling it later, it is important to Deauthorize your program BEFORE going further in this procedure. Go to the VirusBarrier menu (in the Menu Bar, close to the Apple logo on the top left of your screen) click on 'Deauthorize VirusBarrier..."

NOTE: This process works for any Intego software and does not need to be repeated.

What people usually do is erase the hard-drive and reinstall Mac OS X before giving the computer to its new owner. This protects you from the risk of any use or misuse of your data. If you still prefer to only uninstall Intego software, please use the Uninstall function provided by any Intego installer. This method will work for both licensed and trial versions of the Intego software.


NOTE: If you have already tried to manually uninstall portions of Intego software, this will lead to a partial uninstall, even if you used Finder or Spotlight search to locate Intego files. In this case, you will need to first reinstall Intego software before being able to proceed to a clean and complete uninstall.
