Completely uninstall PDM Standard

I have been getting some Solidworks and Windows File Explorer crashes recently, and when looking in the Event Viewer, I see entries:


Connect to server 'localhost'
The owner SID on a per-user subscription doesn't exist


My VAR had no interest in helping fix this error, so I would like to totally uninstall all the PDM components (all installed locally on my Win 10 computer) and eventually move all my project files over to the Vault operated by our machine shop.


Could someone point me to appropriate documentation to inform me of the proper steps to take to get this done? I've seen some instructions on "a clean uninstall of the PDM Client", but I'd like to remove everything associated with the Database and Archive servers, too.
