Please note: We recommend that you uninstall your BlackICE Product BEFORE you upgrade to any Windows operating system. BIRemove.exe will delete all files and folders in the folder that BlackICE is installed in. If you installed BlackICE in its default folder, BIRemove.exe will work as expected.
If non-BlackICE programs or files are stored in the default BlackICE folder, move them before running this program or they will be deleted too. If you installed BlackICE into any folder other than its default folder, your safest option for uninstalling is to use Add/Remove Programs.
