I uninstalled connect with Ashampoo uninstaller (I never used for anything and needless service running). I planned to reinstall but, when I selected to clean up all the left over files.... It crashed because the uninstaller program was installed with connect, not only that but now any of the programs I used connect to activate or install are broken. I have to manually install them because when I tried to put connect back on it did not work it won't recognize the programs.
If you are going to uninstall connect I would not use ashampoo uninstaller to do it because it's a little to thorough
