How Do I Uninstall/Remove NOREF Completely Off Your PC

From Robert Hashemian:

This extension adds a rel=noreferrer attribute to every link on any web page being viewed. It blocks sending referer headers to landing pages, thereby strengthening privacy while browsing.

Referrer (aka referer) is a header value transmitted by the browser to a target web site when a link is clicked on. It contains the URL of the referring web site where the link was clicked on. Some users may not wish to share that information with websites while they browse due to privacy concerns. This Chrome extension blocks the transmission of the referrer header to sites, by adding rel=noreferrer to every link on web pages.


What's new in this version:

Version 1.4 can exclude (whitelist) full or partial domains or URLs.

What is "uninstall error"?

"This program cannot be found."
"The application is still in use."
"The application is protected and cannot be removed."

Whatever the uninstall error you're getting, there are ways to resolve the issue and get that program off your machine without breaking it or your fists in frustration. Even the most seasoned computer users (who are far more experienced and tech-savvy than I am) have problem like this from time to time. The difference it, they don't have to dig around and try to decipher the wisdom of other experts who can tell them how to fix the problem. While lacking expert status, I do happen to have a solution for this particular problem that hopefully doesn't requiring deciphering. Resolving the uninstall error.

So what do you do when none of these options are available? Some users resort to simply deleting the program folder itself when they cannot uninstall program any other way. However, this is not a recommended course of action because it only removes the program files from your computer and does not actually uninstall anything. Furthermore, deleting the program folder can lead to registry errors and other problems down the road.

The best option at this point when you still cannot uninstall program is to turn to a third-party uninstaller program such as Help Uninstaller. You can use Help Uninstaller to remove any program from your computer, even corrupted applications that cannot be uninstalled by conventional means. This program also cleans up all registry entries and leftover drivers installed by your unwanted program. Stubborn and hard to remove programs can also be easily uninstalled, including othe software. Use of a professional uninstaller, even when you can or cannot uninstall program, can go a long way to keeping your computer running faster, smoother and error-free.
