This document explains how to uninstall the New Relic .NET agent. For instructions on how to temporarily disable the agent, see Disable the agent.

To uninstall the .NET agent, follow the procedure that corresponds to your operating system:

Uninstall the .NET agent (Windows)


Requires Administrator rights in your Windows admin group.

This procedure assumes you installed the .NET agent with the MSI installer:

  2. Select Start > All Programs > New Relic .NET Agent > Uninstall the .NET agent.
  3. Follow the prompts to complete uninstallation.
  4. Restart IIS.

After uninstalling the agent, you may want to remove all agent-related files. Be sure to check other paths to remove any other New Relic files. For example, uninstalling the .NET agent does not delete your newrelic.config file.

  2. Delete the entire folder at C:\ProgramData\New Relic\.NET Agent.
  3. Delete the entire folder at C:\Program Files\New Relic\.NET Agent.
