    I plugged my Galaxy S4 in at work and it installed the VZW upgrade assistant software and I am now unable to uninstall it. I do not have administrative privileges. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?
    Thanks

    I doubt you can, absent rooting. But don't worry. Other than taking up a bit of space most the bloatware installed by carriers doesn't really do anything. It probably doesn't slow down your device at all.

    welcome to AF!!!!!!!!

    i moved you to the s4 forum for better views.

    but you will need to be rooted as goodspike mentioned.

    is there a reason why you want to remove it?

    I'd like to remove it because every time I plug it into my PC (two to three times a day), the PC starts up an Internet Exploder window to advertise Verizon, slowing me down. Drastically.

    I'd like to check it on demand, maybe once a week.

    (I plug it into the PC to update various files (e.g., DocsToGo) throughout the day)
