There may be times that for whatever reason, you need to completely remove Black Magic from your computer so that you can start fresh. The following steps will completely uninstall Black Magic from your computer and make it as if you’d never installed it.
There are three phases to totally removing Black Magic from your computer:
- Uninstalling Black Magic
- Removing BLAM’s databases
- Removing BLAM’s preferences files
First, uninstall Black Magic. Then:
On the left, under “Favorites”, click on Desktop
Double click on the folder with the same name as the account you use to log onto your computer
Go to the “Organize” menu at the top of the window and click on “Folder and Search Options”
Click the “View” tab
Under “Advanced Settings” is a list of folders and checkboxes. The second folder down is ‘Hidden files and folders”, select “Show hidden files, folders and drives” then Click “Ok”
Now you’ll see some “ghosted” or pale folders in your explorer window. Those are “hidden” folders that we just told Windows to display.
Double click on the folder, “AppData”
Steps 9 to 12 are for deleting the Black Magic databases
Double click on the folder named “Roaming”
Find and double click on the folder named “PostTimeSolutions”. Drag the folder named “BlackMagic” to your recycle bin.
Click the arrows to go back to “AppData”
Steps 13 to 14 are for deleting the Black Magic Preferences
Find and double click the folder called “Local”
From “Local” go into the “Post_Time_Solutions,_Inc” folder
Delete the folder called BlackMagic.exe_StrongName_abunchofstrangelettersandnumbers.
Now if you uninstalled Black Magic and/or the database files, reinstall BlackMagic and run the PTS Updater 1.01 to get your program back up to date.
