How To Uninstall GeForce Experience Completely?

How To Disable Geforce Experience

I have sometimes been classified as a brand loyalist by some of my peers, especially when it comes to Nvidia. I have used their cards and the software that comes with them in most of my setups.

One of the reasons I have been so loyal to Nvidia is their Geforce Experience software which does its thing mainly in the background and keeps my display drivers up to date for me.

Whenever I install a new game, my first instinct has also been to optimize that game for my hardware using GeForce Experience so I can get the best visuals with stable frame rates.

Being a part-time streamer, I can attest that this tool has served me well for many years and will do so for the foreseeable future.

However, some may consider it more bloatware than a helpful tool, and I will not argue with you on that but instead show you how to uninstall GeForce Experience using three simple methods.

Why Do You Want To Uninstall GeForce Experience?

There can be specific reasons you might not find the Nvidia GeForce experience practical and may want to get rid of it. One of those reasons may be that it is hogging precious system resources like processing power and RAM to do its thing when you need that power somewhere else.

Or maybe you are not satisfied with Nvidia Share, which can cost you almost ten frames per second in some games when software like OBS does not have this issue.

The GeForce Experience can also warrant uninstallation because it needs your data, like Email, to work properly, which is akin more to data mining as there is no need for software to require these to work.

Whatever your reason, you can delete the GeForce Experience simply by following the steps I will mention in the subsequent paragraphs.
