When you install Foxit Reader’s latest version 6.1.1  on your computer, it will install CloudReading plugin on your computer, adds Foxit Cloud option on File menu and you can also notice Foxit Cloud Safe Update Service Process FCUpdateService.exe running under Processes tab on Task Manager as a result of this.

Uninstalling or Removing CloudReading Plugin

Seems there isn’t much use with it for end users. Uninstalling CloudReading plugin not only removes the plugin, FCUpdateService.exe but also the Foxit Cloud option as well on File menu.

For that

  • Close Foxit Reader.
  • Open Control Panel>Programs and Features>Select CloudReading and click on Uninstall button.

Update: Added information about FCUpdateService.exe process.

Thanks, the plugin kept crashing Foxit Reader. I’m not interested in sharing PDFs in the cloud, thank you very much

I won’t let it crash. I uninstall at once. Even if it didn’t crash. I just want to read PDFs and create them.
