Description

Swish needs to be even easier: a one click, get local IP address, pop-up. This would make an over-the-phone walk-through quick and painless when dealing with technically challenged friends and family.

Also, I don't know if it is the beta, but I tried to uninstall Swish, and Revo Uninstaller could not locate it. I then tried IObit Uninstaller and it had issues shutting down explorer in order to completely remove Swish, and now my taskbar is MIA.

Replying to anonymous:

Could you explain a bit more what you mean by this? Why do you want Swish to display you local IP address?

Also, I don't know if it is the beta, but I tried to uninstall Swish, and Revo Uninstaller could not locate it. I then tried IObit Uninstaller and it had issues shutting down explorer in order to completely remove Swish, and now my taskbar is MIA.

Get your taskbar back by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc to get Task Manager, then File, New Task and ask it to execute explorer.exe.

The uninstallers you mention are unnecessary and (as your experience demonstrates) harmful. Swish using the MSI technology built into Windows. Clearly one of these uninstallers thought it knew better that the program's own installer and got it wrong. As Swish is an Explorer extension, perhaps it tried to uninstall Explorer! Who knows.

Just use Add/Remove? programs to uninstall Swish. Of course, if you have any issues doing it this way, file a bug.
