Issue from 1maynard:

After using it for a week and putting up with numerous problems and crashes I uninstalled Kodi. My problem is when I download and install Kodi from this site some of the settings and addons still show up. I tried to uninstall Kodi from the control panel and also deleted it from the X86 program files but the problem still is there. How can I totally remove Kodi and start over with a fresh download.

It seems like there are some files I am not getting removed. I tried a fresh download of 15.2 yesterday and when it started up all of the settings from the previous set up were there. I did not have to set up a PVR client or tell it what files to scan for movies etc. Help I just want to start over from scratch. Before I downloaded the HTPC set up deal I was running Kodi 15.2 with NextPvr and it was working fine. The HTPC setup had many bells and whistles and was impressive looking but caused nothing but problems for me.


What is Kodi: Kodi (formerly XBMC) is a free and open source media player application developed by the XBMC/Kodi Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium. Kodi is available for multiple operating-systems and hardware platforms, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls.
