How do you remove a custom extension?


For example: you run the DesktopExtensionCS2010 sample that comes with the SDK, having it open arcCat at startup.

Now whenever I open ArcCat the extensions are there. I can uncheck them but I want to get rid of them (without hacking the registry).


If you are using ArcGIS 10.0, use the ESRIRegAsm Utility, for example:

"C:Program FilesCommon FilesArcGISinESRIRegAsm.exe" /p:desktop /u "C:TestMyAssembly.dll"

For 9.3.x and earlier you can use regasm.exe like so:

C:WindowsMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727
egasm.exe "C:TestMyAssembly.dll" /unregister

You would enter one of those commands in the Windows command prompt (Start->Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt).


If the extension is bundled as part of an add-in, you should be able to use the add-in manager to remove them, or simply delete it from the well-known folder. If you use add-in manager note that the add-in can remain in memory until you've restarted your app.


If you want to remove a extension, the general way, is to go via regasm/ESRIRegAsm Utility;

However, if you yourself have installed it, when trying out the samples, the easiest way would be to open the solution in Visual Studio, and then clean the solution.

This will deregister the dlls.


How to remove a Google Chrome extension "Installed by enterprise policy"?

This removal guide shows how to remove a Google Chrome extension that was "Installed by enterprise policy". Note that recently, there is a rise in adware infections, and in many cases, these potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) install on users' Internet browsers disguised as legitimate extensions. Commonly, potentially unwanted applications are bundled with free software downloaded from the Internet, the installation of which, is often a consequence of not paying close attention to the installation steps.

To avoid inadvertent adware or PUP installation, Internet users should always install freeware choosing the 'Custom Installation' option rather than 'Typical Installation' - and be sure to opt-out of any changes to your Internet browser settings. Also, disallow installation of any additional software. In this removal guide I will demonstrate how to remove the "Coupon Server" Google Chrome extension that is marked as "Installed by enterprise policy". I chose this extension simply as an example, however, this removal guide is generic and will help you to remove any Chrome extension that is marked as installed by enterprise policy.

It is recommended to run a free scan with Combo Cleaner - a tool to detect viruses and malware on your computer. You will need to purchase the full version to remove infections. Free trial available.

To check the Google Chrome extensions: Click on the bars icon (top right corner of Google Chrome), select 'Tools' and click 'Extensions'.

Here is an example of a Chrome extension that is marked as "Installed by enterprise policy" (it is greyed-out, and therefore, users are unable to disable or remove it):

When dealing with "Installed by enterprise policy" Google Chrome extensions, first check for any recently-installed software within your operating system's 'Add/remove programs'. In some cases, uninstalling this software will also eliminate the associated Internet browser extension.

Windows 10 and Windows 8 users:

Right-click in the lower left corner of the screen, in the Quick Access Menu select "Control Panel". In the opened window choose "Uninstall a Program." Look for recently added software, select the entry and click Uninstall.

Windows 7 users:

Click "Start" ("Windows Logo" in the bottom left corner of your desktop), choose "Control Panel". Locate "Programs and Features". Look for recently added software, select the entry and click Uninstall.

Windows XP users:

Click "Start", choose "Settings" and click "Control Panel". Locate and click "Add or Remove Programs". Locate "Programs and Features". Look for "recently added software, select this entry, and click Remove.

After uninstalling the unwanted software, check your Internet browser extensions. If you continue to observe unwanted entries in your Google Chrome extensions list, continue with the removal instructions.

Firstly, you need to make a note of the ID of the unwanted "Installed by enterprise policy" extension. You will need this in later removal steps to verify the ID of an extension. Click on the bars icon (top right of the Google Chrome), select "Tools" and click on "Extensions", select "Developer Mode".

To remove the "Installed by enterprise policy" Chrome extension, you firstly need to close Google Chrome:

Right click on the Google Chrome icon and choose "Close window".

After closing Google Chrome, remove the registry entries of the "Installed by enterprise policy" extension:

In Windows XP - Click Start, Run.

In the opened window type "regedit".

In Windows 7 - Click Windows Logo (Start), in the "Search Programs and Files" field, type "regedit" and press Enter.

In Windows 10 - Click the Windows logo (Start) and type “regedit”, looks in the best match section and click on “regedit”.

In the opened Registry Editor click "Edit" and select "Find. ".

In the opened window paste the ID of the "Installed by enterprise policy" Chrome extension which you are trying to remove and click "Find next" button.

Remove the registry key matching the Data value of the "Installed by enterprise policy" extension's ID (right click on the registry key and select "Delete"):

Confirm that you want to remove the registry entry by clicking "Yes" button.

After removing the registry entry of the "Installed by enterprise policy" Chrome extension, remove the associated files. To do this, Open "My Computer" and navigate to "C:UsersYOUR USER NAMEAppDataLocalGoogleChromeUser DataDefaultExtensions". Remove the directory matching the ID of the "Installed by enterprise policy" Chrome Extension.

You can access your AppData directory by typing %USERPROFILE% (Windows XP) or %localappdata% (Windows 7 and Windows 8), in the Run dialog box.

Navigate to C:WindowsSystem32GroupPolicyMachine (or C:WindowsSystem32GroupPolicyUser) folder and remove the file named Registry.pol

Finally open Google Chrome and check the extensions list. The "Installed by enterprise policy" extension should now be removed.

When I follow the instructions to delete the extension, and then go back into Manage Extensions, its still there, albeit with "This extension may have been corrupted" with buttons for Details/Remove/Repair. How can I get it to disappear completely? Chrome v90

i was led here cuz unhackme alerted me and had trouble removing kjeghcllfecehndceplomkocgfbklffd and was was able to remove it thanks to this post i realized at the end that it wasn't a chrome extension but in fact a brave browser extension . just putting this out there so people know that it may not be 'only' chrome .

Sweetie just calm down a bit

Help! It is not deleted! When i go back into chrome the exention is still there. How do i delete the administrator alltogeter?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE is in regedit

Then try disabling it instead.

Sign out, hold shift + and select the power option (to open advanced startup) then troubleshooting -> command prompt and then execute:
net users Administrator /active:yes
then reboot and sign in as Administrator no password and finish it the steps there (Windows 10) after, for security reasons go back into advanced startup and then command prompt and execute:
net users Administrator /active:no and reboot

Hi there, I wanted to thank you for the guide.
I have followed all of your steps and successfully managed to remove the extension, but when I re-opened Chrome, the extension was re-installed, along with a thank-you page that popped up.
I wasn't sure if it was a malware before, but now I'm pretty sure.
Please help me as I don't want it to remain on Google Chrome.

Excellent! I had removed the software but the Chrome extension remained, protected by "policy". This helped me get to the registry entries and files to rip the son of a gun out! Thank you! P.S. Control Panel can no longer be reached under Windows 10 version 1903 upwards - you can remove software using Settings, Apps.

say that in english please

1 - Install CCleaner Free
2 - Go to "Tools"
3 - Go to "Browser plugins" and uninstall the plugin. (It the policy reinstalls it, just disabe it instead. It seems to work)

I cannot remove the Registry.pol, it asks for the administrator access. Is it anyway than I can bypass this?

There is no Command Prompt on Chromebook, It's running ChromeOS (like based on Android).

i have successfully deleted the extention from chrome, but it come back just in few minutes later

There are no file of the files you mention

It reinstalls itself when I open chrome again help

TO FIX THIS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is
Go into dev mode. Copy the ID
Open Registry
Edit
Find
Paste the ID
Delete what it finds
Open Task manager
MAKE SURE CHROME ISNT RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND
if it is close it
Then edit find Paste it again
It should take you to a folder called google
Delete the folder
Relaunch Chrome
That unremovable extension will be gone
all of your data, bookmarks, and other extentsions are saved.

I'm having trouble finding the installed enterprise policy on the registry editor that was installed by Minneapolis Public Schools website when I recovered my account on Monday October 22 and when I deleted my username [email protected] and changed it back to [email protected] and my password back to th0529 on my computer and that's how school extensions popped up and can't be disabled on my computer, I did not ask for school extensions to pop up. Are there any other ways to get rid of the installed enterprise policy off my computer? Tasia Hester

dude, how do I delete this extension called "wonderful weather" because its a violation of google policies, that I need to remove.
but how do I do it.
also, I have NO idea how it got into my browser

You have to find more than 1 of that ids sometimes there are several ids of that malware in the registry. Just delete them one by one and all of the problems will be solved

Thanks for the post. it was very helpful. Keep updating the more blogs.

I have deleted the registry from regeit but when I tried to deleted from system 32 there no such folder as group policy please reply me as soon as possible and the extension is furniture guru

So I'm posting this because your instructions came up first on the list. Hopefully it will help others, did this by going through Webroot support:

HOW TO DELETE THE WEBROOT CHROME EXTENSION INSTALLED BY ENTERPRISE

So logs indicate that Webroot is uninstalled already but if the extension is still there, we usually do recommend a full uninstall including removal of all Webroot related files and registry.

Open Chrome and find the extension ID in 3 dots at top right in Chrome, More Tools, Extensions and clicking on the Details of the Webroot Extension and copy the extension ID, paste it into notepad for later. It will be a similar alphabetical string like this:
kjeghcllfecehndceplomkocgfbklffd

Make sure that Chrome is closed and remove the following (they may or may not all be there):
C:Program Files (x86)WebrootWRSA.exe
C:Program FilesWebrootWRSA.exe
C:ProgramDataWRData
C:WindowsSystem32WRusr.dll
C:WindowsSysWOW64WRusr.dll

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesWRkrn
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesWRSVC
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetserviceswrUrlFlt

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ServicesWRSVC
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ServicesWRkrn
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ControlSafeBootNetworkWRkrn
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ControlSafeBootNetworkWRSVC

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet002ControlSafeBootNetworkWRkrn
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet002ControlSafeBootNetworkWRSVC
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeWRData

Find and delete in the Registry (regedit.exe) all instances of the extension ID you found in Chrome. Copy it and paste it into Edit-Find, then keep finding all of them by using Find Next, there are at least 3 of them.

Restart your computer and then delete the file C:WindowsSystem32driversWRkrn.sys

Start Chrome, the extension will be gone

It worked for me.
Thanks a lot

Please help me, there's a new extension called Gadget Deals, take a look at it, i'm frustrated by this stupid extension.. please

someone plz help, okay i have the newest windows and i was trying to down load a simple beat maker and it was working then i opened google and it had no name on the search bar. it had booking, amazon, gear best, aliexpress and lots of another boring sites i dont use. im only 15 and stressed a little. i know computers very well but all i can find about this thing is its name 'CryptoTokenExtension' i have tried to reset and debug it using a trusted malware but im getting nothing.

To remove this malware from your computer.

Find and delete scthost.exe in the syswow64 folder, easiest way is to simply press "control alt delete" and find scthost, it will likely be running under your local user name, right click on the process and select "open file location" which open a new window showing the file likely within the syswow64 file folder, then end "process tree" on the scthost in the "task manager". Delete the file "scthost.exe" at the "file location"and then open notepad and type something anything into it and save it into the syswow64 directory or whichever directory the file was running from, with the name "scthost.exe"..

Then open a windows search directory and type "regedit" and select the "regedit" from the list.

Once into the registry editor look just to the right of the "file" tab and open the "edit" tab, look at the bottom of the drop down list under the "edit" tab for ""find"" click on ""find"" and type, "ActiveTrak" then hit the "enter" key to start the search. When you find a file with ActivTrak in it go to the folder containing it and Rename it with the same first 2 letters followed by "RENAME" and just leave the rest of the name the same as it was originally, easier to come back and find later if need be. To search through the rest of the registry simply go back up to the "edit" tab and drop down and look just below the "find" for the "find next", click on "find next" and it will search until it finds the next entry. Once you have done this to all files with ActivTrak in them then repeat the same search for "Birch Grove" and do the same with these files as you did for the ActivTrak files.

This effectively removes and stops activtrac on your computer. As I have found and noted before, somehow Malwarebytes does not recognize ActivTrak as malware, so you have to be on the watch and remove it yourself. Malwarebytes will catch and remove what ActivTrak loads onto your computer though, but without removing the ActivTrak software your computer simply starts reinstalling all the crap all over again if you do not remove or disable the ActivTrac and Birch Grove installers in the registry.

Never trust a company that creates malware to "uninstall" their malware, that is not how they make money.

The above method worked quite well for me, best of luck to anyone else dealing with this malware problem..

There's this app on my Chromebook called securely that allows my school to access your account look at everything you do and change anything! long story short. my school is stalking everybody. this is on a Chromebook which will not let me use the software. any other suggestions?

Thank you so much. I have been looking for a solution to this problem for last 6 months and none of the solutions available in net worked except yours.
I just did one thing differently (may be because I have windows 10), instead of removing the extension from Windows Explorer, I removed it from Registry (I removed 2 things from registry instead of 1 by searching with the extension name)


Installing Kexts Automatically

Installing kexts is not as simple as removing them. It can be done manually, but using a kext installation utility like KextBeast is much easier. KextBeast was created for use on Hackintoshes, but it will work just as well on a vanilla Mac.

1. Download KextBeast. If you don’t have a free account with tonymacx86.com yet, you’ll need to create one to download the file.

2. Move the kext file you want to install to your Desktop. The program will automatically operate on any kext files in the

/Desktop directory, so make sure you’ve got the right one.

3. Open KextBeast and click “Continue.”

5. Choose your system’s boot drive as the installation destination and click “Continue.”

6. Tick the box next to “/System/Library/Extensions” or “/Library/Extensions,” depending on where your kext needs to be installed. If you don’t know which ome to pick, choose “/System/Library/Extensions.”

9. Enter your administrator password and click “Install Software.”

10. Wait for the installation to finish and click “Close.”


Custom connectors

Non-certified custom connectors can range from small business-critical APIs to large industry-specific services that Microsoft hasn't released a connector for. Many connectors are distributed by vendors. If you need a specific data connector, contact the vendor.

To use a non-certified custom connector, put the connector .pq, .pqx, .m, or .mez file in the [Documents]Power BI DesktopCustom Connectors folder. If the folder doesn't exist, create it.

Adjust the data extension security settings as follows:

In Power BI Desktop, select File > Options and settings > Options > Security.

Under Data Extensions, select (Not Recommended) Allow any extension to load without validation or warning. Select OK, and then restart Power BI Desktop.

The default Power BI Desktop data extension security setting is (Recommended) Only allow Microsoft certified and other trusted third-party extensions to load. With this setting, if there are non-certified custom connectors on your system, the Uncertified Connectors dialog box appears at Power BI Desktop startup, listing the connectors that can't securely load.

To resolve the error, you can either change your Data Extensions security setting, or remove the uncertified connectors from your Custom Connectors folder.


How to Change File Extension in Windows 10

Step 3: Find the file that you would like to change through the search window. When you find the file, right click it. Select the rename option from the menu, and then type the new file extension.

Step 4: Then there will pop up a warning window on the page. If you confirm to change it, click Yes to finish the operation.

How to Remove Smoke Smell from a Home

During times of severe drought, Texas is often plagued by wildfires from far West Texas, to central Texas, to the High Plains, the Hill Country, and even East Texas. Many homes are completely destroyed, yet many additional homes suffer smoke damage. The odors from smoke can leave you feeling nauseous or with headaches, as well as an overall sense of annoyance at the constant smoke irritation. The smoke infiltrates homes, and the lingering odor persists due to tiny microscopic particles that cling to walls, furniture, floors, clothing, etc. inside your home. Removing the smell of smoke can be a difficult job involving time, effort, and money.

Burning scented candles and perfumed aerosols are often used to remove smoke odor from a house. These remedies most often only mask the odor temporarily. Ventilation can help to remove some of the smell, but it actually only dilutes the odor and does not remove the smell permanently. To remove the smell permanently, one must remove the source of the problem. The smoke particles must be removed by cleaning since smoke particles tend to get into the smallest cracks and areas. This means that you may be left with lingering odors even after cleaning your house from top to bottom. Removing all sources of odors is the only way to ensure the scent will not linger. You may need to rent an ozone generator or hire a professional to use an ozone generator to destroy the smoke molecules that are left behind and are causing the odor. The use of an ozone generator requires a temporary evacuation from the home, and the cost of rental can range in the low hundreds. If you elect to operate the machine yourself, be sure to follow the safety precautions that accompany the rental machine.

Helpful Cleaning Tips

The following helpful tips come from the FEMA website :

  • Wash, and scrub all exterior surfaces including walls, walks, drives, decks, windows, and deck screens, etc.
  • Wash and disinfect all interior walls and hard surfaces with mild soap or other appropriate cleaning solutions or products, and rinse thoroughly. Don’t forget inside cabinets, drawers, and closets.
  • Launder or dry clean all clothing.
  • Wash, dust, or otherwise clean all household items, including knick-knacks.
  • Disinfect and deodorize all carpets, window coverings, upholstered furniture, and mattresses with steam or other appropriate equipment.
  • Upholstery, fabric window treatments, etc. can be spray-treated with deodorizing products available at most supermarkets, but do not use odor-masking sprays.
  • Have heating, ventilating, and air- conditioning units and all duct work professionally cleaned to remove soot, ash, and smoke residue. Change filters when you first return to the premises and at least once a month for the first year.
  • If aerial fire retardant or firefighting foam residue is present on the house and/or automobiles, use a mild detergent and brushes to scrub and dilute the dried residue and flush it from the surfaces rinse with clean water. A follow-up with pressure washing may be beneficial but will not replace scrubbing to remove the residue.
  • Ash and soot on the ground and vegetation in the vicinity will continue to generate smoke odors and airborne particles when disturbed by air movement. Until the ash and soot are diluted and absorbed by the environment, indoor mechanical air filtration may help minimize the uncomfortable and potentially health-threatening impact of these pollutants.

Additional Tips on How to Clean Smoke Damage

Smoke odors can be quite stubborn. Depending upon how strong the smoke odors are, one or more of the following methods of cleaning may prove helpful. Keep in mind, though, that if the smoke odor has permeated into your carpets, draperies, furnishings, etc., there may be little that can be done to eliminate the smoke odor unless these items are removed or replaced.
