How can I uninstall Router Control manually?

There is a great tutorial of Tentacle Software regarding this topic:

Sometimes WHS doesn't successfully uninstall some Add-Ins; you end up in a state where the WHS Add-Ins tab shows that an Add-In is installed, but the Add-In isn't loaded and you can't install an updated version.

To manually uninstall any WHS Add-In, follow these steps:
  1. Make a note of the name of the Add-In that cannot be uninstalled ("WHS Disk Management" for example).
  2. Log into WHS using remote desktop.
  3. Locate the Add-In in Add/Remove Programs and uninstall it.
  4. Open regedit and locate HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Home Server\RegisteredAdditions\.
  5. Locate the subfolder that references the name of the problem Add-In ("WHS Disk Management" for example) and delete it.
  6. Open and then close the WHS Console from within the remote desktop session (to free up any in-use files).
  7. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\.
  8. If present, rename the Add-In file ("HomeServerConsoleTab.DiskMgt.dll" for example) to remove the DLL extension ("").
  9. (Optional) Install the desired version of the Add-In through the WHS Console as normal.
