Please keep in mind that FrostWire creates a folder called 'FrostWire' where all the downloaded files are being saved to.

The instructions above will delete the application itself. The FrostWire downloads folder will not be deleted during this procedure and needs to be deleted manually, if you wish to delete it as well. 

You can find that folder either in My Documents or in Downloads on Windows computers. On Mac, it should be directly under your User folder.
