Steam and RAZER Synapse

1. Delete the audio plugin located at:
2. Remove the RAZER Synapse driver and software from your system, this is not easy nor is it the best solution if you would like to continue to use the RAZER Synapse enhancements.

This means each file would need to be manually removed.
