Uninstalled F.lux and how I get a pop-up when I turn on my computer telling me to reinstall
I got F.lux maybe a year ago and about a month ago I uninstalled it because I no longer had a need for it. I uninstalled the app and deleted all files with the word f.lux in it from my drive. Now, whenever I turn on my computer I get a pop-up notification that says, "F.lux has encountered an error and should be reinstalled". I have tried reinstalling! then uninstall the app and it didn't help. Any suggestions how to get rid of it?
When this pops up, don't click okay. Leave the window up for now.
-Open Task Manager (CTR+ALT+DEL).
Under Processes, Right click on F.lux and chose "open file location".
Once the folder is up, now you know where the files are.
-Go back to Processes, right click on F'lux again and choses "end task"
-Go back the folder that has the .exe and delete everything in that folder.
- shorter fix, go to User/AppData/Local/FluxSoftware/Flux and delete all files in the folder. Again, you may have to kill the process first in Task Manager. Hope this helps.

Our older installer (about 6 months ago) had a case where it wouldn't uninstall entirely, but we have fixed it in the newer versions.
So if you want to uninstall completely the easiest thing to do is download a current version and immediately uninstall it. (Easier than step-by-step instructions.)
