Unable to open "Uninstall a Program" through Control Panel

Q: Unable to open "Uninstall a Program" through Control Panel

Hi

Not sure if this is the right thread for this post.

I am unable to open "Uninstall a program" through control panel. Everytime when I try to open it, I get the following error message

"Windows cannot find '::{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}...:{7B81BE6A-CE2B-4676-A29E-EB907A5126C5}' Make sure you typed the name corerctly, and then try again.

However, I can open this in safe mode. Unsure why this is the case. Have tried googling for help but none found.

I use Win 7 64bit.
Please help me here.
Many thanks

Preferred Solution: Unable to open "Uninstall a Program" through Control Panel

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Unable to open "Uninstall a Program" through Control Panel

Hello jason & welcome to SevenForums!

Have you been trying to deleting this program by deleting the folder in the DATA path? It would probably fail after trying to uninstalling in the control panel then.
Try looking for the path and see if it's there!

Also, try this well popular software, for a perfect uninstallation of a software:

Revo Uninstaller

A:unable to open control panel or "properties" of My Computer

Can you get to the system properties if you go into Control Panel > System? (Classic View)

Also, you can try opening regedit (Start > run type "regedit" w/o quotes) and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Delete the keys:
NoPropertiesMyComputer
NoControlPanel

If the NoControlPanel key is not present you can find it most likely in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

A:I cannot open "my computer" "control panel" "recycle bin", etc...

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Hello and welcome to TSF

Apologises for the delay getting to your log. The helpers here are all volunteers and we have been very busy lately. If you are still having malware problems, follow instructions below.

=======

You are using an outdated version of Hijackthis. Please uninstall from Add/Remove programs, and delete your current version.

Next, download HijackThis to your desktop

Alternate link

Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Upon install, HijackThis should open for you.

Should it not open, navigate to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Do not post that log, instead, do this next:

=====================================================

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: SFCShowProgress
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

Hi,

I'm trying to set Notepad++ as the default program for *all* file types that it can open, using Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs. I want to make N++ open every file type it can open, and so I don't want to do this by individual file extension.

Notepad++ does not show in the list of programs that I can set defaults for, and I see no option to add a program to the list. I've Googled this question to no avail. Can anyone tell me how to set a program that doesn't appear in the list as all its defaults?

Thanks.

A:Adding a program to "Default Programs" in Control Panel

When I right-click on a file to open it, I get the option to "choose the default program", and in there, you can eventually open a browser to use to find the app you want. That app then becomes the default program for that file extension.

I'm unable to access the Control Panel on my Win7 built-in Administrator account. On all of my other admin and non-admin accounts, I have no problem.

The control panel icon does not appear at all on my Start menu - if I do a search for "control panel", and then click the Icon, I get this message:

?This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

This message is then followed by a popup which says "Explorer.exe Unspecified error".

Any advice on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

A:Unable to access the control panel - "this operation has been cancelled... etc"

If this just started try a System Restore. Otherwise from one of the User Accounts put Administrative Tools in the Start Menu and see if this gives you access.

I'm having a bit of a problem. As far as I know, my comouter is completely free of viruses and spyware. For about a month and half now, I've been receiving the error message "Windows cannot open user accounts control panel" every time I double-click on User Accounts in Control Panel. I've been to many sites and I'm still stumped. I think the problem lies in the file nusmrgr.cpl being damaged or defective. If anybody can't offer me some advice or point me in the direction of a download or a recommended piece of software, I would really appreciate it.

P.S.

My computer is (obviously) Windows XP and I've already tried System Restore and Roxio GoBack.

I have not been able to open "display" to set screen saver, monitor shutdown, etc. since I shut those things down to play Wolfenstein without interruptions during an extended pause. I tried system restore with no results other than scaring myself.
There may or may not be any connection with the game. I know the game needed to be run in windows 95 (I am running xp) and I think some settings in display were changed to run the game. I thought of deleting the game but I'm not done with it yet and I had to return the disc to the library.
I tried several things to get this function back, but it's beyond my limited abilities. Thanks in advance.

A:can't open "display" in control panel

Try booting to "safe mode" . . . and adjusting your screen settings.

Reboot - press F8 just before Windows starts.


If it will boot normally in save mode, you should be able to recapture control.

When I try to open display to set my screen saver, and monitor shutdown, etc., I get a quick hourglass flash and then nothing happens. Starting the computer in safe mode doesn't help. I tried doing a system restore to a time somewhere before I installed my wolfenstein game which is when I last used display with no result. Right clicking on display and choosing open has the same result.
Could I have deleted something in windows by mistake on one of my disc cleanup missions? Can I use my emergency recovery cd's

I accidently posted this in "Vista" so I'm reposting it here as the operating system I have is XP Professional.

I'm having a problem with "Display" in the Control Panel. Yesterday I visited a website and opened a file. After I did that, my wallpaper changed and it appeared to be whatever the website was. I was able to somehow get it off (don't ask me what I did, I couldn't tell you). Now, when I click on "Display" in the Control Panel and go to "Desk Top", the only thing that I can change is the color and I can also click on "Customize Desktop", but I cannot change the background or click on "browse...".

A:program name "roxio" appearing in the "uninstall or change a program" only

Go to your system manufacturer's web site and download the Roxio software installation package and re-install it. If option for "repair" appears - choose it.

Here is the Roxio site itself --> http://www.roxio.com/

Program hangs, when i try to open or save as a file In "excel-2003" and "corel draw9" and "WILCOM Es9"
and in task manager it shows ?not responding?
But when i try to open it by clicking on the file using windows explorer it works quite well.
Earlier i used same programes on the "865glc" and "2.4" there was no problem,
I have also tried many Intel computers to trace the problem
i found the problem on every computer that was build on the motherboard later then Intel 865
Now what to do?

Hi

I am running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on a Lenovo T510.

Every single time I do a Properties on My Computer, I get this pop up message that "Windows Control Panel has stopped working". Oddly, I just cancel that window and everything otherwise seems to work normally. But it happens every time and I can't figure out why.

Anyone else experience this?

Thanks

A:"Windows Control Panel has stopped working" on My Computer Properties

Hi

This usually happens when you dont remove the software completely, some process are attached to the Windows Explorer ... thats causing this.

Try using Autoruns and look under Explorer... and look for file that highlighted in yellow.. usually should say "File not Found". Uncheck or delete these and restart you computer.

Try these and let me know.

When I either right click the desktop and choose Personalization or access through the Control Panel it's blank. Then when I try to access it again it says it's trying to find a solution to the problem and restarts explorer (not MSIE). But that doesn't allow me access to Personalization. Anything I should try?

I searched and didn't find anything here. Thank you.

As it turns out, it may be a problem with using the Zune theme, which may be for XP. I'm not sure on this though. It disappointing because I really liked how things were looking.

I was also get "the application has failed to start because WINBRAND.dll was not found" when running

This has now been fixed by downloading WINBRAND.dll and copying it to c:\windows\system32

But "The page failed to load" still happens when right clicking My Computer and choosing properties.

I did a SFC / Scannow and something weird happened. The Command Window had an error (apologies - forgot to note which but will rerun in a moment) however the CBS Log File showed no errors and indicated SFC ran successfully.

A:Can not remove "System Security Center" Control Panel

Hi coupon,

Welcome to Tech Support Forum!

I apologize for the delay getting to your log. The helpers here are all volunteers and we have been very busy here lately. If you are still having malware problems, I will be glad to help.

OK, let?s do this first.

Go to the Start menu, and click on Control Panel. Choose Add/Remove Programs and remove any of the following that are listed:

NetMeter


NEXT:

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan". Place a check (tick) next to the following entries (if present):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Personal Security Center Monitor] C:\WINDOWS\system32\psc_mon.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [NetMeter] C:\Program Files\NetMeter\HooNetMeter.exe


Close ALL programs and browsers (including this one), leaving ONLY HijackThis open, then click "Fix checked".

Then please exit HijackThis.


NEXT:

Please go to: VirusTotalAt the top of the page you'll find a "Browse" button. Click the "Browse" button and browse to next file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\psc_mon.exe

Click "Open".
Then click the "Send" button at the top of the VirusTotal page.
This will scan the file. Please be patient.
Once scanned, copy and paste the results in your next reply together with a new HijackThis log.


NEXT:

Using Windows Explorer, please navigate to and delete the following FILES (if they exist):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\psc_mon.exe



Using Windows Explorer, please navigate to and delete the following FOLDERS (if they exist):

C:\Program Files\NetMeter



Please let me know if you encountered any problems finding or deleting the files/folders.


NEXT:

Please download CCleaner (freeware) and save it to your desktop:Run the CCleaner installer.
During installation process, please UNCHECK "Add CCleaner Yahoo! Toolbar".
Once installed, run CCleaner and click the Windows tab.
Select the following:Check everything under the Internet Explorer section.
Check everything under the Windows Explorer section.
Check everything under the System section.
Check ONLY Old Prefetch data under the Advanced section.

Then, click the Applications tab:UNCHECK everything there.

Next, click the Options button, then click the Advanced button:UNCHECK : "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours".

Next, click the Cleaner button, then click the Run Cleaner button (bottom right), then Exit.

CAUTION : Please do NOT use the Issues button. This is a built-in registry cleaner. If you don?t know how to use it, you may cause irreparable damage to your system.


NEXT:

Let's run an online scan to make sure we're not leaving anything behind.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner:Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner.
You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, click Yes.
The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
Once the files have been downloaded click on Next.
Now click on Scan Settings.

Scan Mail Bases

Click OK.
Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer.

This program will start and scan your system.
The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.Now click on the Save Report As button.
In the File name: field, type kavscan.
In the Save as type: field, select Text file (*.txt).

Save the file to your desktop.
Copy and paste that information in your next post.


NEXT:

Please reboot your computer normally into Windows, and then please post the log from the Kaspersky scan, the report from VirusTotal, and a new HijackThis log.

How are things running now?

the title says it all
on every attempt to bring system window from control panel or right clicking my computer explorer.exe crashes, problem is no minidump is created to include, and i do have it enabled from "sysdm.cpl\advanced\startup" so any suggestions ?
p.s : not really sure if dump files are created with normal crashes and no bsod , so if there is another way to trouble shoot this thing please indicate .

A:Explorer crash on running "control panel\system" no minidump created

Hello Nightmayor and welcome to Sevenforums.

Explorer Crashing

Here are some tips and tricks you could try troubleshooting the kind of problems you're experiencing.
Having crashes upon the .explorer usually reveals problems in the Windows Context Menu. I'd suggest you to download a software called ShellExView. The idea of ShellExView is to figure out, what shell extension is causing your explorer to crash.Use the software with this procedure- Disable one extension that doesn't belong to Microsoft. In many cases there are running 3rd party shell extension along Windows, and may cause the crash. If the crash persist, undo the selection, and proceed to the next non-Microsoft extension. Keep doing so, until you've found the culprit.

Download Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes will investigate malware and worm targets, and try to remove them. It's very handy in that manner.Run a full scan of it twice or more. In many cases it won't detect malware in the first shot.

To ensure Windows isn't broken, we'll recommend the sfc /scannow command.Here's how- Press Start | search 'cmd' | Right-click it
| open as Admin | type SFC /SCANNOW

SFC /scannow

If the steps didn't work, Create a new User Account on your system. The current user account you're using, may be broken and corrupted.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

Hey, I used the thread search here and found out how to remove the peper trojan my dad had on his computer, along with HSA.

The spyware has been removed, the computer is running splendidly. However, entries still remain in the "Add/Remove Programs" Control Panel. They all seem to be related to HSA, because like the entry for HSA, all they really do is open your browser and go to a page where it says you can download an uninstall program.

Does anyone know how to remove these entries from the "Add/Remove Programs" screen?

A friend of mine did who knows what to his computer using some data cleaning software, called secure clean. He set it to run and automatically shut down the PC when finished. Upon reboot, his taskbar was a different color, he was shown a message requesting that he log in with a user that has administrative privileges, his internet connection was gone (ipconfig showed 0.0.0.0 on everything, and ipconfig /renew said "RPC server unavailable"....even though the Administrative Tools>Services applet shows it to be "started").

System Restore is not an option, as it was disabled a month ago in hopes of solving another unrelated problem....

So... I'm gonna bet 10 bucks it's time to format the hard drive and start from scratch, right?
 

A:Control Panel is completely empty & ipconfig /renew gives "RPC server unavailable"

I think you win the bet since SR is the only way I know that gives the system a shot at recovery from such an event unless the program that did the offending work creates a restore file of its own (most just use SR if they do though).

You could try a system repair but since it seems all sorts of settings are missing and accounts have been messed with as well, it might be more effective to nuke if there's a good backup.

In Windows 8.1 Update 1 I cannot change file associations whether I try to do so from Control Panel or from within an application. For example, here's the popular VLC Media Player file association preferences:
I cannot select (put a check mark) or de-select (remove a check mark) from any individual file association. If I click on the selection box, nothing happens. I have the same problem even if I open the application with elevated privileges. I can check the Select All box and all associations will be selected, but that's all I can do.

I can go to individual files and choose Open with and that association will stick, but it's far easier to select an application's default file associations at one time.

How can I make the Default Programs control panel set file associations?

A:can't access "game controllers" in Control Panel

Well, I managed to sleuth this out. I figured it had to be a conflict caused by the legacy (Win 95 vintage) MS Sidewinder joystick. So I went into Device Manager and selected Human Interface devices. Everything there had a name except one that was merely listed as a "HID-compliant device". I figured that had to to be the Sidewinder so I disabled it and lo and behold, the Game Controller selection in Control Panel was operative again! I opened that and deleted the MS Sidewinder and then went back into device manager-HID and deleted the driver. Too bad that some Win XP update caused this issue. The joystick was perfectly good and worked with XP without issues for many years. Now dxdiag runs with no issues and reports the keyboard, mouse, and Logitech stick. All is well again. :-)

Thanks in advance for any constructive ideas.

A:Missing from control panel "add and remove programmes"

Hello thefrogg

Try a system restore.

If that does not help
Do a search on your hard disk for appwiz.cpl
If it is there its should be in the System32 folder.

If its not there it may be corrupted, go to START >RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW and hit enter.

Have your XP CD ready as it will ask for it.

Many applications have very bad uninstallers. They don't really care about what happens if you are so rude as to decide that you don't want their programs. It shows a lack of integrity, or at least knowledge.

Get another uninstaller, like Your Uninstaller, or one that searches the registry and folders for all parts of an application and removes them all.

Some programs do not place entries into the registry and thus don't need to be uninstalled, only deleted. Look in the program folder. Is there an "uninstall" file? If not, you can likely just delete it.  What is the name of the program?

I have an old ipod with lots of music on it, and a somewhat less old iphone with some more music on it, and a very new iphone I'd like to put all that music onto. :-)

I couldn't figure out how to do that -- itunes just lets you move "purchased music" around as far as I can tell -- but a search indicated that I need to make hidden files visible, go into my ipod's music folders, then manually move it.

I'm told that to do that I have to make hidden files visible and to do THAT I need to go into "Appearance and Personalization" in "Control Panel" and change the setting.

D'oh! Apparance and Personalization DOES NOT EXIST on my control panel!

Any ideas?

Open the Programs and Features control panel. 
This screen contains a list of the programs installed on your computer, the company that developed it, and when it was installed.
 
Right-click on a program to make it highlight. Once you highlight a program you will see two new options next to the Organize and View button called Uninstall and Change (sometimes contains repair option).
 
There are two ways to Uninstall/Change/Repair a program as below:
1. Click the Uninstall or Change button next to the Organize and View button
2. Right-click the program, then choose Uninstall or Change
 
My question is:
What's the difference between these two methods? Are they exactly the same?

1. Click on the Windows Start button, select Control Panel.

2. Double-click on the Add/Remove Programs icon.

3. Click once on Juno to highlight it and click on the Add/Remove button.

4. Click OK then OK again and close the Control Panel.

5. Click on the Windows Start button, point to All Programs and select Windows Explorer.

6. Double-click the Program Files folder in the left-side window.

7. If you see a Juno folder, highlight it and press the Delete key on your keyboard to remove it.

8. Close Windows Explorer.

9. Double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.

10. Double-click the Dial-Up Networking icon.

11. Click once on the Juno icon to highlight it and press the Delete key on your keyboard to remove it.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hello, I've encountered an anoying issue in control panel, the uninstalling section. I've had programs sorted by "Installed on", but since today it always stays sorted by name and even if I sort them again by any other column, it reverts back to name after I re-open or just go back and forward again. Basically, no change gets saved. Re-aranging, disabling columns just gets me the default view with name sorted again. Any helps please, must be something in registry, tried looking around the web, haven't found anything my problem releated.

I just want Windows to remember my sorting option next time I try to uninstall something.

A:Control Panel -> Uninstall or change program -> Columns sorting

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

The places where the column sorts are saved gets full...
...then stuff starts getting weird.

You can use the batch file in this tutorial to empty those places:
Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

The Desktop is a folder too - so all of your shortcuts/icons will be moved to the left.
If you have a lot things on your desktop, then you might want to...
...install Desktop Restore from this website: MIDIOX
...save your current desktop
...run the batch file from the tutorial
...restore your desktop
...open the list of installed programs
...sort that list as desired
(Leave that list window open*)
...restart your computer
...and see if the sort holds.

*You might also want to consider placing a check by this Folder Option...

...then the list of installed programs will reopen after the restart.

I was given an HP laptop with vista and it is very slow to start up. I was uninstalling some programs and I sort by date so I can see the crap that was recently installed... the "installed on" date was there and now its not. It shows name and size but date is gone now. Anyone know why it went away and how to get it back? It may seem stupid but I like to know the date so I don't accidently uninstall anything that was installed by HP and may be essential.

Also any advice or programs on how to start up faster... I have run virus scan with avast, ran spybot, deleted startup entries, cleanup, defrag. Anything else I can do?

Thanks!

Every time I try to uninstall any program, Windows XP tells me that I need the installation package ("installer.msi" or "programname.msi"). I searched on my hard drive, and can't find any of these .msi files.

This seems very dumb. I have been able to search on the internet and find some of the .msi files that I need. When I find the right one, XP accepts it and uninstalls the program.

But for many of the programs I need to uninstall, I no longer have the .msi file and can't find it online. Is there anything that I can do to uninstall this software, given that I don't have the .msi file?

Thank you
