SecuROM™ is a library, which protects an executable. During launch of such an executable, SecuROM™ authenticates the application. This process includes the storing of temporary files (e.g. DLLs to show dialogs) and registry keys (which might include the activation license of the protected application).

The SecuROM™ Removal Tool can delete these remaining files.

Be informed that by executing the SecuROM™ Removal Tool, license information can be deleted from your system. As this can result in a loss of activations, we suggest you revoke all activations prior to execution of this SecuROM™ Removal Tool.

Please note that not all PC games or software titles support revocation, as this depends on titles and publishers. Should you have any questions, please contact us.
