There’s a quick way that help you get rid of CyberGhost 5 from Mac, if you have ever met problems in the removal, I’ve been looking for a convenient method to remove needless applications until I found this page to solve the troubled CyberGhost 5.

  • When the Manual Option can’t Solve the Problem
  • “CyberGhost is a fast, simple and efficient way to protect your online privacy, surf anonymously, and access blocked or censored content.” When you tried to delete its leftover you would find it’s quite difficult to do it in a short time, therefore, you need to find a reliable removal tool to help, because none of you can possibly delete all of them without no mistakes.

    If users can easily completely remove an app with simple clicks in a few seconds, I think this is really helpful to them. In the manual approach, after dragging the target into Trash, you need to continue to delete all its remains that stored in hard drive, but the fact is that, uncertain or unknown locations can you figure out of the exactly where they are: usually they are stored in the path ~/Library/Preferences/, ~/Library/ Application Support/, and ~/Library/Caches/. Unfortunately, then can also be other places that you can’t image, thus, to delete all of remains of CyberGhost 5 with manual sounds like impossible in macOS.

  • How the Tool Work to Get Rid of all Remains
  • Firstly, all you have to do is to download this kind of tool in its website. Then you start to uninstall CyberGhost 5: Launch Osx Uninstaller << Locate the target (CyberGhost 5) << Easily click Run Analysis << Click Complete Uninstall << Click Yes to delete all the leftovers of CyberGhost 5 << Finish the removal.


    See, the remains are deleted in step 2, after click Complete Uninstall, it will scan all of remains on the screen, and then click Yes to ensure the whole removal. Like this, people like me wouldn’t have to delete them one by one, more importantly, the automatic method won’t damage any of your computer during the removal.

    New York Times reported that Microsoft will further shrink the Windows phone business section due to the poor sales

    Microsoft announced on Wednesday that it will streamline 1,850 employees, among 1,350 positions are from Finland where its Windows phone business originated. Microsoft claimed the streamline plan is a part of the $950 million cost-saving plan.

    Terry Myerson, vice president of Microsoft Windows and Device department stated in the email which sent to its employees that the company made a hard decision and it will focus on the development of smart phone hardware.

    It is a bad news to streamline workforce to Microsofts Windows phone business as there are not enough employees left in Windows phone business section.

    When Microsoft acquired Nokia cellphone business section, about 25,000 employees joined Microsoft. With the poor sales of Windows phone, Microsoft cut jobs to save cost. It announced to lay off 18,000 employees in 2014, most of them were involved in Nokia acquisition. Microsoft further streamlined 7,800 employees last year to simplify the product of smart phone. Microsoft then had about 110,000 employees.

    The sales of traditional cellphone have been affected by smartphones. Nokia has its own time, however, its advantage did not last for a long time compared with the rise of smartphones.

    Even though Microsoft some smart phones got likes, however, the third party app developers assumed there were fewer attractions from the consumers.

    Gartner reported that among the smartphone shipments in Q1 2015, there were 2.5% of smartphones using Microsoft OS. However, this figure dropped to under 1% in Q1 2016.

    Last week, Nokia announced to authorize its licensing brand to Foxconn and HMD Global for the production of Nokia cellphones.

    Satya Nadella promoted the R&D team to launch mobile applications based on iPhone and Android operating systems. Microsoft also released the universal Windows operating system that could be run on other devices. This could attract more developers to use its OS.
