Having trouble uninstalling Valorant? It could be due to the Vanguard anti-cheat system that needs to be disabled first. Try disabling Vanguard from the system tray and then giving the uninstall another shot. If that doesn't work, you might need to go into Safe Mode to uninstall both Valorant and Vanguard. Remember, Riot Games designed Vanguard to be super sticky to keep the cheaters at bay!

Just use the Control Panel, bro. Go to Programs and Features, find Valorant, and hit Uninstall. Works every time for me.

Riot Games uses Vanguard to protect against cheaters, making Valorant a bit of a pain to uninstall. If you're stuck, it might be because Vanguard is still running. Shut it down first!

If you can't uninstall Valorant, it's likely a sign from the universe that you're destined to play just one more round. Or, you know, the Vanguard anti-cheat system is messing things up. Either way, good luck!
