WARNING: Make Sure you are disabling RGB software only, so that you don’t disable any important software.

  1. Go to Taskbar: Go to the taskbar > click on the Settings option. If you do not see one, just type it into Windows Search > click the top option.
  2. Installed Apps: Click on the Apps button, which will lead you to another section of Windows Settings > Select the Installed Apps option. A list of all the installed applications on your PC will open.

  4. Uninstall the software: Click on the three dots to open a context menu for further options > Click on the Uninstall option and follow the on-screen directions to uninstall the software.

Clear CMOS

RGB fusion, sometimes does unwanted power cycles of the computer. If you clear the CMOS, the BIOS settings will be restored to default. The motherboard’s CMOS chip stores various data and settings, including boot priorities, overclocking, and RGB profiles. You can remove the CMOS battery or press the CMOS button on high-end motherboards to clear the CMOS. If your motherboard lacks a CMOS button, follow these steps to reset the CMOS:

  1. Turn Off Computer: Turn off and unplug the computer > Turn off the Power Supply for safety.
  2. Remove Side Panel: Remove the side panel of the computer casing. Locate the silver, coin-shaped battery on your motherboard.
