I want to uninstall Magix from one of my computers. I've done so through the add/remove programs bit, but how do I get rid of the content packs? Are they stored in system files or something. I've deleted everything Magix based II can find but there still seems to be about 4gigs of content pack sounds buried somewhere...


If you are using a PC with Windows, do a search for *wav* files on the 'C:' drive in Wndows explorer.  If you've downloaded additional sound files in "ogg" format, be sure to run a separate search for those.

Be sure you will never have any use for them again before you delete.  Also, look at the file path to make sure the files are associated only with a Magix product.

I'd recommend burning them to a DVD or CD before you delete.  After all....you paid for them, so why just throw them away?
I need to amend my response above.  As you note, uninstall does NOT completely remove ALL of the program files from your computer.

You need to search your entire hard drive for all file types using the search parameter *musicmaker*.  Delete all of these files/folders.

To completely purge ALL of the soundpool files you will have to do searches for all "wav", "ogg", and "tak" files.  Delete all of these that are clearly associated with "Music Maker" or "soundpool". Delete the entire folder that contains these files.
