What happens if the ForensIT "User Profile Wizard 3.12" utility is removed from Win 10 Pro computers after it has been used to convert local logon accounts to domain logon accounts?

A couple months ago my organization used the free version of the Forensit "User Profile Wizard 3.12" utility to convert local Windows 10 login accounts to Active Directory domain login accounts on 16 Windows 10 computers.

Now the users login using their domain usernames and passwords but still use their existing Windows local user accounts profiles that existed before this migration was done.

We have noticed that the User Profile Wizard utility apparently still continues to run within Windows Task Manager and that the folders it created during installation also still remain.

Will there be any harm if we remove the Forensit "User Profile Wizard" installation folders and prevent it from running within the Task Manager on these computers where this utility was used several months ago or will this cause any types of problems or issues?

Attached is the Forensit User Profile Wizard 3.12 Corporate Edition user guide.

The wizard is a one-time utility. It doesn't need to run all time, and I have never seen it doing.
Removing does no harm.

No harm whatsoever to remove it after migration. In fact, I would always remove it afterwards
