JetBrains ETW Host Service is not uninstalled automatically

Problem

JetBrains ETW Host Service is not removed automatically when Rider, ReSharper or dotTrace is uninstalled.

Environment

OS: Windows

Cause

JetBrains ETW Host Service is not a part of a single product, it is used by multiple products: Rider, ReSharper, dotTrace all rely on it. So the service exists as a distinct entity (more details here). It is installed whenever you install any product that uses it, however uninstalling it automatically alongside one of the products will affect other JetBrains tools installed on the system.

Resolution

If you have uninstalled all the tools that use JetBrains ETW Host Service and there's nothing that depends on this service anymore, you can remove it manually using the Apps & Features settings page.
