  • I’m loving Xobni
    I hate to hear you’re leaving. Xobni is one of my favorite programs. I love the search the most but there are a number of great features and Xobni is rolling out new ones all the time (like the recent Twitter extension).

    Having said that, here are my suggestions for uninstalling. Part of this also comes from other related answers provided by Xobni (Tyler):

    I would open the Windows Task Manager, go to the "processes" tab, select "show processes from all users", and make sure all “Outlook.exe” and "XobniService" processes are gone . Then, go to control panel, add/remove programs (or Programs and Features, if you are using Vista), scroll down to Xobni, click remove, and click remove from the repair console that appears.

    Try Outlook again to see if it is gone now. IF it still shows up, close Outlook and then make sure no Outlook.exe processes are showing up in the task manager again, then, delete the following directories:

    C:\Program Files\Xobni (or C:\Program Files (x86)\Xobni)

    XP: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\Xobni\OutlookProfileName

    Vista: C:\Users\[Your Name]\AppData\Local\Xobni\[Outlook Profile Name]

    You might need to turn on 'Show hidden files and folders' in the Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab, in order to see the Xobni data directory listed above.

    If you start Outlook again now, Xobni shouldn't show up. Post an update here on how this goes though and if Xobni continues to show up in Outlook for you, maybe I can suggest other things to try.

    FYI: Assuming this does work to remove Xobni from Outlook, it may still show up in control panel, add/remove programs. That isn't a "problem" but if this bothers you, you can go to it again add/remove programs and click remove. You'll get an error since it's gone now. Windows may then ask if you want to remove it from the list. If you can't remove it from the list, there are other things you can try to do this. If you have that problem, just post an update to this post and I'll try to suggest a solution to that.

    I am also trying to delete xobni. last wednesday it suddenly created thousands of log files, filling my hard drive. the uninstaller won't work so I am deleting the files manually. this is taking a really long time.

    Dan,

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. It should definitely not fill up your hard drive the way you describe, so we'd love to see what's going on. If you haven't removed it all already, please run Inspector X (Start > Programs > Xobni > Diagnostics) and file a support case with GetSatisfaction: How can I delete xobni? in the subject line: xobni.com/support > Contact Support.

    If you just want to go ahead and uninstall, use the brute uninstaller:

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thanks,
    Eirik
