If you have stopped using Autodesk products, you might have uninstalled all the programs you no longer use, but wait; there is more. Autodesk never lets you uninstall Autodesk Genuine Service from your computer. You have to uninstall it manually. The uninstaller will launch when executing it, but it does not allow you to uninstall it.

To uninstall it, we need to download this tiny program called Troubleshooter, created by Microsoft; you can download it here.

Open Troubleshooter and choose Uninstalling.

The Troubleshooter will give you a list of programs; choose “Autodesk Genuine Service” and proceed.

The next step is to switch to Blender. I was kidding.

I compiled a list of software and services that I use to improve my workflow, here is the link to the list.
