How do you uninstall STWOR properly? In Windows 7, you can remove SWTOR but it says its only ~20megs.. Shouldn't this read 20 gigs?

There has got to be a better way to fully uninstall the game that just deleting the folder. I can't believe the FAQ has nothing on this and google searches just point you back here.

That's just the size of the executable file. If you actually tell it to remove the program it will delete everything in the folder, which adds up to around 20gigs

Thank you for the good explanation Vesperascit.

* Usually the full size of games shows up there, like 10 gigs for SC2, 10 gigs for COD:MW3, so it was throwing me off when the size looked way low.

In Win7 under Uninstall or change a program Star Wars is not listed and I need to know how to uninstall. Any ideas?

EA cut a deal with Microsoft to make it un-uninstallable.

Search Google for the press release.

Im not sure if the OP of responses were the funnier part of this post BUT...



why hasnt anyone brought up the uninstall tool thats in your -- EA/Bioware/Star Wars: The Old Republic directory. Or wherever you installed the game.



NO win7 doesnt do a better job, 3rd party uninstallers do.... sometimes

Me too. No one even has a legit reason to delete or lock this thread

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.
