Diablo® III

How to Uninstall?

Hi -

I've been having some lockup issues since the patch, and I want to reinstall my game client. However, there is no "Diablo 3" folder under "All Programs" in my START tab, and the game directory does not have an uninstall link.

I have no idea why there's no D3 folder in my "All Programs" list, there always was in the past.

Any idea how I can uninstall the game without using this link?

Most folders in Program Files/Start don't have uninstallers anymore.
Either hit windows key/click start and type add remove, and should show Add or remove programs and do it there.
Of if you want to be semi classy, hold windows key, press R for run bar, then type appwiz.cpl
Or just delete the whole D3 folder, wherever you have that installed.

Thank you for your reply.

I should have added that D3 does not show up on the Add/Remove tab of the Control Panel.

If I delete the D3 folder won't it leave behind some possibly corrupted system files?

Here's a support article that will help with the uninstall: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/diablo-iii-uninstall-instructions?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=support_forums&utm_campaign=BlizzardCS

If you don't see Diablo III in the Control Panel/Uninstall section, you can delete the D3 folder manually and then manually delete the other folders mentioned in the support article.
I'm available Monday through Friday from 11AM to 8PM Pacific Time

I guess the question we all want to know is why is D3 no under the uninstall files program under the control panel like every other program is??

I have the exact same problem. This is a confirmed bug that others I know have encountered.
Won't deleting the folders still leave behind the registry entries?
