It took a quite long time to remove "EA" from my Creator 2.0 installation by the auto-upgrade process this morning.
literally thousands of people downloading massive amount of data. This will be better within a couple days. Overall the upgrade process does take a while. Dowloading is primarily bandwith limited, uninstall depends more on your harddrive, install mostly harddrive, RAM and CPU.
Thank you for your patience (or persistence)
