      Registry entries that named Default can not be removed. However, deleting all other registry entries related Mobogenie will do the work.

    I have downloaded and used Mobogenie, and it seems to work fine, doesn’t
    cause any problems on my computer or on my phone. Nevertheless I
    uninstalled it, for the simple reason that it comes from Beijing – who
    in their right mind would install software on their computer AND
    smartphone that is a function of the Communist Chinese government? You would really have to be naive to think that there is a software firm in Beijing that operates independently of the Beijing government, or that is not constituted to fullfill on a government objective.


    just removed all mobogenie files. Thanks Thanks Thanks, your instructions were GREAT.
