Yes, to get back the majority of the space used by DC Universe Online you can just delete the installation folder. For Windows 7 and Windows Vista this is going to be C:userspublicSony Online EntertainmentInstalled GamesDC Universe Online Beta.

The only thing to keep in mind when deleting the root installation folder is that this will still leave registry files for the game in your computer. Not that this is going to do any damage, but it won’t technically be “fully uninstalled”.

Hold in there, beta testers! The game is nearing its release date, and I promise it has been worth the testing and waiting.

    I was able to uninstall it be going into the actual folders and locating the uninstall file there.

    There have also been people saying that if you get the original install file you used, start it up, go into it's repair, skip over the patches for the launcher and then uninstall it from that. (I believe that was the method at least.)

    I thought about leaving it on my computer till I remade my character, as you could still get on the character selection screen, so I could get the same colors as before.. but figured it didn't matter.

    It's the little things where you can tell if a company actually gives a **** about their customers, or if the only they care about is a quick buck.  When I went to uninstall the beta immediately pops up and tells me its going to remove c:/windows/system32

    What the ****? lol.

    Luckily I am not the average person and was quite easily able to remove it and all offensive traces of their malware.  This is not an uncommon occurance with SOE products, even in retail.

    ANYWAYS.. "give a crap about their customers" blah blah...

    if you go C:userspublicSony Online EntertainmentInstalled GamesDC Universe Online Beta and then click the uninstaller.. it works perfectly.  None of the system32 stuff that occurs through add/remove programs.  It works fine.  Atleast for me.
