Let’s take a look on what kind of problem did a user met when he/she tried to uninstall Kodi from PC:
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.
