I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Uninstall Adobe Reader XI (11.0.6) won't uninstall/remove pop-up loop persists

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.
The error is occuring because the installer is looking for files in a temp folder that are no longer there.
Extra care is needed with this tool. Download Microsoft Installer Cleanup.  Run it in an admin account and only select Adobe Reader XI if it is in the list (If it is not in the list exit out) and then press the remove button making absolutely sure no other programs other than Adobe Reader is selected. Then I would try reinstalling Adobe Reader again.
I would recommend that you do not constantly uninstall and install the program.

I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit.
I was having problems installing a program (Berlitz German Premier) where the install would just disappear halfway thru the process. A program would not appear under my programs list but when I went to Uninstall an icon for uninstall of the Berlitz software appears for each time I tried to install it. However I get the following error messages (see attached document with screen captures) when I tried to delete it the traditional way.
When I use Windows Install Clean Up utility, the program is nowhere to be found on the list; thus I can't use that program.
Any suggestions for how to get this program removed?

A:Program wont uninstall it with Uninstall or Install Cleanup Utility

Is this a windows XP program or one for vista. It looks like a compatibility problem. Check with vendor to see if they have a version for vista. Some older programs will not work with vista and never will. There is an option to run in capatibility mode with vista but does not always work.

I installed Arduino software, part of which included installing a number of drivers. I uninstalled the software using the internal software uninstall feature. Apparently it removed the drivers, but for some reason they still show up in the Windows install/uninstall list. I try to uninstall them using the Windows uninstaller, but I get an error stating that the drivers are not there (at that address). The problem is, I cannot re-install the drivers, because for some reason they still show as being installed by the Windows installer and the software refuses to re-install.

So, how do I remove a file name from the install/uninstall list on Windows 10? A file name for a file that is already deleted?



A:Cannot Uninstall Drivers from Install/Uninstall List - Windows 10

Hi, Geek uninstaller (free) offers a range of removal options if you right click an entry.

However, you may have parts of the program left over.

1. Does the program's site offer a manual uninstaller or uninstall instruction?
2. Check the various folders that may have been created when you installed it for leftovers.
(Try Locate32 (free) - let it index all your files then you can quickly check for anything related to the name of your program on a find-as -you-type basis).
If you find any exe's left over, then use
Revo (free)
to force uninstall these.

Your problem will be knowing if anything is left over that you don't want.

Finally you can search the registry.
Try Regscanner (free) as this lists all found unlike Regedit which is 1 by 1.

Create a system restore point or back up your registry and delete remnants.

Good luck!

Hello Just got new computer and before I continue to download more software specifically software for fijitsu scanner I want to know if I should uninstall one of my HP drivers that randomly causes printer to get error lights flashing when I try to print via quot HP Universal PCL quot printer icon then printer turns itself off then works ok A few HP drivers seem to be installed The info win pro bit The steps taken Installed HP Laserjet PCL driver from HP site Icon for printer says quot HP Lserjet PCL quot Worked ok Noticed that my older pc had a PCL driver and so installed this because I figured this is what some of my older software programs needed to print I think I installed it incorrectly from HP 3015 uninstall to laserjet Qu or uninstall re: hp driver not site because I think I forgot to start with printer unplugged Also not sure I picked the proper choices on screen e g standard vs dynamic option It seemed to work fine for a few days with the quot HP Qu re: to uninstall or not uninstall hp driver laserjet 3015 Universal Qu re: to uninstall or not uninstall hp driver laserjet 3015 PCL quot as the default driver Then it started to cause printing problems at random times when I tried to print Went back in and selected quot HP Laserjet PCL quot as default printer Seems to be working again but of course it has been only a day QUESTION Given that I ve heard uninstalling HP Qu re: to uninstall or not uninstall hp driver laserjet 3015 drivers can be funky should I just leave the universal PCL on it and just keep the PCL selected as default printer OR should I uninstall the driver Also what is the best way to uninstall the driver so that I don t remove possible shared files etc Also I should note that I did experience my first blue screen after only using the new PC for couple days I don t know if the blue screen was related to this though but rather my security software At end of security software full scan no threats found the program and another program running at same time would not respond Could not get control-alt-delete to respond either no change in screen despite multiple pressings of this combo So I just turned off pc via holding in power button til it powered off I then had temporary problem with security software but managed to fix it Thanks to anyone who has any advice I figure it may be best to deal with this issue before I install more software like TWAIN amp ISIS drivers for fijitsu scanner I never had problem with HP and fijitsu scanner on same pc when had my old win xp setup nbsp

A:Qu re: to uninstall or not uninstall hp driver laserjet 3015

Nothing really funky about uninstalling HP drivers. I would probably uninstall the drivers you don't want just to keep the system clean rather then clutter it with multiple print drivers.

Now there is a specific PCL6 driver for that printer, aside from the Universal PCl6 driver you have already installed, its located here:

I hope you weren't running Combofix and the security scan program at the same time? Combofix should not be run at the same time as another scan and all AV software should be disabled when CF is being run.

Uninstall the uninstall files? Interesting concept. Are they that large that you need to do that? The reason I would not do that, is that if you ever have a problem. Should you ever need to do maintenance and uninstall and then reinstall something,you have now made that quite difficult. There may be other issues involved that I am unaware of as well. But that is the first thing that comes to mind.

So I decided to reinstall Neverwinter Nights 2 today, and once the uninstall for the game had finished, I went to my D: folder and found that almost every single other game had uninstalled with it!

The only games spared (mostly) from this random slaughter were Battlefield 3 and The Witcher 2. Almost my entire Steam library was gone with only less than a third of it left (including The Witcher 2). Oddly enough, the games that were spared had everything except the save files wiped.
The other strange thing about this wipe is that it only seemed to apply to the Games on the D: folder, and completely ignored everything else on that drive and on all the others.

The uninstall took very little time and nothing unusual seemed to happen during the uninstall. But now everything is gone. Does anyone know why this might have happened?

A:Uninstall NWN 2, all games uninstall as well

I had a similar issue with Ragnarok Online when it's launcher actually ran NFS Hot Pursuit 2010's launcher instead of the actual Ragnarok's, which was pretty stupid. Both problems could be related, who knows.

Are you sure it was NWN 2 that caused this? Maybe you could backup the surviving games, reinstall one of the deleted games, install and then uninstall NWN 2 to see what happens.

I recently reinstalled Black Hawk Down and was playing on-line with it for the last week I had updated the game as soon as I reinstalled it but learned that even though I had used the Uninstall Cannot in-game Update Wizard I was still playing Cannot Uninstall an old version I tried geting later updates but kept geting errors when I tried to install them So I decided to just reinstall the entire game and start over That s where my problems began At first I used the link in the Start Menu to uninstall the game but was told that the exe was in use It was NOT in use So then I went to the Control Panel - gt Add Remove Programs to delete it I got the same message Thinking it was somehow hung up I restarted my computer but still got the same results I then tried to delete it manually but could not get rid of the dfbhd exe file I even used a quot shredder quot I have in a utility package and it would not delete If anyone has any advice as to why this is happening and what I can do to kill that file I d greatly appreciate it Have tried the game s on-line support but their program for submitting problems is bugged up causing me even more headaches nbsp

A:Cannot Uninstall

Restart the computer, and keep hitting F8 until a bunch of stuff shows up, and select 'boot in safe mode', or something like that. You should be able to delete the file then.

Have you tried just reinstalling it anyway? Somtimes the game will overwrite any files in the directory it's trying to install to, but if the game is still in the registry, it might not let you reinstall at all.

Right now im am running Windows 7 along with Windows XP

However XP no longer works, it doesnt even make it to the Windows XP logo and the blue bar.

So i was wondering how to deleted the OS, and put that partion space onto Windows 7.

A:How to Uninstall an OS

You can use a free program called bcdedit to alter the boot files to remove xp (and the boot screen to chose OS) then delete/remove/format the partition XP was on

Then if you want to include that space with 7 you can extend the partition or keep it as seperate drive space up to you

Hi -

Can you actually "see" the files you are looking for? If so, where?

Check to see if there is a folder named c:\Windows.old - If present, it may contain the files you are looking for.

If files are locked and you are receiving "access denied" errors, add "Take Ownership" to your context (right-click) menu.

Download the .reg file and permit the registry merge to occur.

If you come upon a locked file, RIGHT-click on it, select "Take Ownership"

HERE is a tutorial on how to do this.

The reason you're not seeing Internet Explorer show up in Programs and Features is because it is part of the operating system - you can't uninstall it.

You can however uninstall Windows Updates, which is what IE9 is technically considered, and that is what the tutorial I linked to will show you how to do.

A:What should i uninstall?

A better place to start would be on your start up programs, the windows live programs can be disabled in the start up manager in ccleaner instead of uninstalling unless you use them a lot.

Do you use Audacity? That might be a remover, the converters you might also want to lose. But if you use them keep them, but look to your startup first it is easier and safer than unstalling.

The startup manager is under tools.

Welcome to Seven Forums, mrscullen.

I highlighted your two questions, which are related. The quick answer is that there is no need to re-install anything but the copy of Windows 7 Professional that you want to use.

You can even get rid of the recovery partition, if you want.

(Note: If you are using the Upgrade version of Windows 7, you can do either a clean install, custom install, or upgrade install (The links point to tutorials here on how to do each.))

Sometimes that can happen if you partially delete the file, then try to remove it from Add/Remove Programs.

Instead of having to tamper with the registry, try reinstalling the program first.
You may even come across the option to not install any additional things that come with Yahoo Messenger - like the Toolbar, etc.
Then once it's reinstalled, you can uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs first.

Let us know if that helps.

Can someone please help! I need to uninstall IE8 without any user prompt's. Is there a command line script I can run or some type of behind the scene's application that can run. Please Help Thank You

A:Uninstall IE8

Hi and welcome to TSF..

If Windows Internet Explorer 8 is not in the list of currently installed programs, there are other steps you can take to get rid of IE 8.... Click on Run from the Start Menu, type cmd into the "Open" box and click OK... The Windows Command Prompt will open... Type (or copy and paste) %windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe into the Command Prompt window and press Enter... Windows will uninstall Internet Explorer 8... Restart the computer when it is finished...

Hope this helps..

From the beginning My old pc ran Win XP and IE with no problem My new refurbished Dell runs Win XP Pro SP also It came with IE and the trouble began when I upgraded to IE There were certain things I could not do that I had been able to do before accessing Windows Skydrive for example I can access it in Firefox no problem One thing led to another and more problems started popping up like the Internet Options IE8 Uninstall Can't menu not opening Now all I want to do is get Can't Uninstall IE8 rid of IE but I can't At a specific point during uninstall the system reboots and IE will no longer open until I restore to an earlier point Obviously I can't install an older version of IE over IE I tried to reinstall IE with the same restarting issue I cannot restore to any point before IE was installed I haven't had the computer long so I tried a complete system restore but the same thing happens the system restarts and nothing has changed Windows File Protection has identified or different system files that are missing or corrupt but my pc did not come with the XP CD so I can't do anything about that Contacted Dell for a CD but my refurbished machine is beyond the warranty period I know most people will say quot forget IE use Firefox quot but I would sincerely like to straighten this out as my internet browsing has become sluggish I use Avast Antivirus which hasn't identified any problems Spybot S amp D picked up a few things and was able to remove all but one Babylon Search It can't remove bacause it is always in use and my pc will not boot in safe mode Malwarebytes picked up nothing Does anyone have any thoughts on this

A:Can't Uninstall IE8

If Babylon Search is listed as your Homepage change to blank. If listed as a toolbar or add-on, get rid of it and see if IE8 deletes. If no luck try Revo Uninstaller first on Safe. If it fails try advanced, but be very careful and set a Restore Point first.

Its not as simple, after a botched IE update I am unable to uninstall or disable IE. I don't want to use IE! I need it to be able to use Skype, I have tried Unlocker so I could possibly manually uninstall it, if there is a repair option in the IE installer then the installed version is so screwed that it says that the install is also okay, when of course it isn't. If you guys have any ideas on what could be the issue that would be appreciated.
Thanks in advanced

A:Uninstall IE

Hi there
update to the latest version of IE again - then roll it back if you don't want or need the latest version.

Once you've got a decent version installed it should be possible to uninstall it simply in the control panel.

I was asked by a friend , why AOL will not uninstall from/with add-remove.
Its a new toshiba notebook and AOL has never been used, just pre-installed.
Would deleting the folder in Program files be a good idea, or might it leave the item listed in add-remove.
Just curious as AOL {most of it anyway} can usually be uninstalled with add-remove.

A:Cant uninstall SP1, second try

1 you need to activate windows vista first.

if you don't activate windows Software and programs will fail .

if you have the Origonal Vista DVD try doing a system Recovery a Previous date the day before you Put windows SP1 on you're computer if you made systems Recovery date before you put Sp1 on you're computer this will restore it to that time before you Put Sp1 On you're computer if you didn't make a restore point before Sp1 on you're computer most likely Sp1 won't come off if you tryed everything else.

Sometimes when I download an update to a program already on my PC it seems to be the same full program that is used to install it for the first time, but I'm just upgrading to this newer version. Some "installation wizards" specifically say that I don't need to uninstall the older version. Others don't say that. Is it always OK to install an upgrade "over the top of" the older version or should I sometimes uninstall the older one first ??

A:Uninstall First???

Depending on the program, and the type of update.

Like Mozilla Firefox, every release can just be written on top of the other, but most people will back up the Firefox settings and the uninstall the old version berfore upgrading. It gives you better performance and better chance of success.

What I would say, if you can do a clean install without losing files or programs, do it.

Need some help,

My C: Drive was getting full so I cleaned it up and did a defrag and now BF2 no longer works, which is no big deal will just re-install.

Unfortunately I can not uninstall either through the program uninstall or through Windows XP software uninstall.

Tried deleting it and hoped it would see the path is no longer there but it made no impact. I can not reinstall as it still thinks the game is installed.


A:Can not Uninstall

I discovered my system had corrupted files I ended using the ISO file and DISM and was able to clean my system finally. My question: Is it possible to un-mount the the ISO ? Is it possible to delete the ISO, being as it has done for me what I was hoping, but I now do not need it ?




...............Is it possible to un-mount the the ISO ?..............................

ISO and IMG File - Mount or Unmount in Windows 10

go to File Explorer > click This Pc > right side, do you see your iso mounted in a drive ?
If yes, Right click at it > click Eject.
............... Is it possible to delete the ISO, being as it has done for me what I was hoping, but I now do not need it ?

Yes, you can delete it, if you want to.
But why not save it to an external media or hard drive ?
Who knows, you might need it in near future
A lot of people will even burn it to a bootable media ( DVD or USB ) for Clean Install or future use.

I want to remove AVG because there is no installed components and it's screwed up. When I used the avg remover tool, it said not installed. When I uninstall it from Add/remove programs, it simply says:

Error message: AVG product not installed, uninstallation request ignored. And it acts as if it is installed because its in my hidden icon tray and starts up normally except nothing happens when i update it or scan.

A:AVG will not uninstall!

Re-install AVG, reboot, uninstall AVG.

I just got this computer from my mother, and there is no space on the C: drive. When I recieved it, it had windows 98 but I soon upgraded to XP, I dont have SP2 or higher. I went into the add/remove programs and removed all games and software that wasnt being utilized, and removed all videos and pics, and I still have MINIMAL storage space for what I needed it for. Every time I delete cookies, I get more, but on startup, I check the properties of the drive and I have less and less space. I have spybot and hijack this..I just dont know what else to do!


Welcome to BC jaylee16354

In order for us to better help you, I am going to ask some questions:

How much total memory does the hard drive have?

You said you "upgraded to Windows XP." How did you do this? Is each a separate installation so that there are two operating systems?

What is the make of your computer?
