IPVanish - The Best Kodi VPN

Before we start

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

Uninstall Kodi through Control Panel

Let’s begin my uninstalling the actual software. Open the Control Panel, which you can search for in your start menu. In the search box in the top right, search for ‘uninstall’. From the results, select ‘Uninstall a Program’.

Look in the list for Kodi, right click it and select Uninstall. Run through the wizard to uninstall the Kodi software.

Ensure configuration files have been deleted

Now that we’ve uninstalled the Kodi software, it’s time to make sure the configuration files and other data have been deleted.

  1. Open your start menu and type the following exactly: %AppData%
  2. We need the percentage symbols wrapped around it. Once you’ve typed that into your search bar, hit Enter.
  3. This should bring you to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming.
  4. Look inside for a folder called ‘Kodi’.
  5. Delete the entire folder.
