Complete removal?

I've had enough of this thing screwing with my monitor setup and trying to take control all the time.  So it's going back into it's box and hopefully someone else can enjoy it.

Removing the software...  I've done the apps and programs uninstall, does this also delete all the apps and games that had also been downloaded?

Thanks.

    1. Disconnect your computer from the internet.
    2. Back up any Oculus content if you want to. 
    3. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode. 
    4. Uninstall Oculus Home using the Control Panel.
    5. Delete all Oculus folders from here:
      • C:\Program Files
    6. Remove any Oculus folders from here:
      • C:\Users\YourUserProfile\AppData
      • C:\Users\YourUserProfile\AppData\Local
      • C:\Users\YourUserProfile\AppData\LocalLow
      • C:\Users\YourUserProfile\AppData\Roaming
    7. Reboot your computer into normal mode.
    8. Reconnect the computer to the internet.

    The best way is to use CCleaner. There’s a very through uninstaller in it and it also has a cleanup mode AND a registry cleaner. 

    Nothing is better. It has a free edition that does it for you as well.

    grab the slim version and unselect the two middle options.

    Reg cleaners (like CCcleaner) can cause more problems than the solve imho.   Just make sure you have done a System restore point before you try them.

    Alienware 17r4 Laptop with i7-7700hq 2.8/3.6, 32 gb ram, gtx1060 w/6gb ram, 256gb ssd, 1tb hdd, Oculus Rift w/2x sensors.  Now using an Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) with Zotac gtx1080ti Blower and Asus vg248qe 144hz external monitor.  All works great!

    CCleaner does backup the registry just in case.
