I't main purpose is to keep you using ArcSoft products.

  1. Stop ArcSoft Connect Service: Launch "Activity Monitor" from /Applications/Utilities, select "ConnectService" and then click Quit Process.

  2. Delete following folders or files:

    /Applications/ArcSoft Connect Suite

    /Applications/[Product Name]

    /Library/Application Support/ArcSoft



    ~/Library/Preferences/Application Support/ArcSoft


Notes: [Product Name]: represents the ArcSoft product you want to uninstall (there may be some more than listed there).
