Splashtop Streamer Uninstall

When I bought the refurbished ASUS TF101, it came with a software call Splashtop Streamer that allows you to remotely control your PC. Since I returned the defective unit, I have no need for the software. However, it keeps asking me to update itself and the only options are "OK" or "wait 7 days" when the irritating dialog box pops up again. I tried to uninstall it and there is no entry in Control Panel > Programs and Features. I searched online and found this under Splashtop's support site:
Hi all,

If you can't find the uninstaller from Windows Control Panel/ Add/Remove application, you can download our latest Streamer v1.7.0.4 from this link, then double click it to launch, there should be uninstall option to be taken. If there's no uninstall option enabled, please try to complete the whole installation, then re-execute this isntaller again.


Splashtop Inc.

Wow, who thought that was a good idea?! Any software that doesn't allow you to uninstall it is a POS. Now I have to install more crappy software just to get rid of existing crappy software. Oh joy.

Update it using the latest version then uninstall it with CCleaner. I literally just did it for my TF300T.

I uninstalled Slashtop on PC because my Asus tablet was making the PC look unpredictable. Now I have downloads of material that I purchased that I can not open "becuase I don't have access". Fail!
Anyone out there with advice to get my downloads back?

I found a way to access my downloads. I highlight the download then right click and open it with Acrobat Reader. That is probably a bandaid for some kind of chage due to that program. If I could take back today!!!!
