Preferred Solution: uninstall language pack x64

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.)

Hello jonaand &

Select the original installation file, MUISETUP.exe (Multilingual User Interface Pack), run it and deselect all the language packs you want to remove.

My son was using my computer temporarily for work. He was uninstalling Abobe Illustrator and needed to restart to complete the uninstall. When the computer restarted, the monitor ceased to get a signal from the computer. Have tried unplugging the monitor for a bit, tried restarting in safe mode - nothing has worked. Has the monitor somehow been fried from just a restart?

A:Monitor stopped working after uninstall

Really I don't think it fried from a restart. It just may have went bad. Have you tried another monitor to make sure. It could also be your on board Graphics or graphics card.

Hi all i have what porbably are dumb questions but i need clarification all the same please i just bought a XFX HD GPU upon your recomendation and was wondering if i should uninstall all the nVidia stuff in add and remove except the driver before i remove the card or just remove the card install my new one then uninstall the nvidia stuff I have a spare gigabyte GT GPU which i would like to give to my dad as he has an old Pack-Bell iMedia which he uses in the lounge to watch Uninstall for installation? drivers fresh GPU films on and browse the net Uninstall drivers for fresh GPU installation? The PSU in this old machine is only a watt and the GT reqiures a w minimum but as he wont be playing games or doing any photo editing etc only watching mp films would the PSU still power it reason i ask is it has a HDMI connection and his stock card is the old blue pin plug so i thought is would get a better pic using my new card also the GT is mb and the stock one is only mb Your thoughts please Thanks Lee nbsp

A:Uninstall drivers for fresh GPU installation?

1. Yes, you can remove all the Nvidia components through Add/Remove, although it's probably easier to download a utility such as Driver Sweeper which will remove the driver, PhysX, HD audio, Update etc in one move... Just remember that the system will likely revert to a lower VGA (640 x 480) screen resolution.
You can then power down, replace the card and install the driver/catalyst control centre etc.
Once you're up and running it would pay to bring up the Device Manager, click the "View" tab and check "Show hidden devices", then expand the "Display adapters" heading. If your previous card shows up -right click and select uninstall.

2. You say that your dad's computer is an "old Pack-Bell..". Power supplies gradually lose their effective output over time as components in the power supply wear, so his 250w PSU is likely much less. The GT210 isn't a power hog by any means (30.5w max) but picking up a suitable (and relatively cheap) PSU might be a good investment in any case, especially if the computer/PSU are 5+ years old.

Is the best way to uninstall an old router to use the uninstall option in Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs folder and then run ccleaner?

A:Best way to uninstall router?

Unless you used some software assisted installation, simply removing the router from the network (and plugging your computer directly into the modem if applicable), and performing an "ipconfig /renew" in the command prompt should be enough. Sometimes stubborn network interfaces require being disabled and re-enabled, or even a quick reboot. There really shouldn't be anything to uninstall.

If there is an installation assistant program lying around, it doesn't hurt to uninstall it and run ccleaner to get the remnants of it out.

A:Can't uninstall sound max so i can reinstall

Uninstall it in SAFE MODE.
You get to SAFE MODE by pressing the F8 key repeatedly when you first press the <ON> button... then let it fully settle down, then scroll to the top of the page to access Windows then use Add and Remove in the Control Panel.

i'm away from home forgot my power pack !

can i use any power pack to charge my laptop

ie from another laptop???

eg from an acer aspire?

A:Samsung R710 power pack urgent help needed?

It depends upon the Voltage and Wattage of the Acer Aspire Power Adapter

In your Samsung:R710 laptop
If you are using battery: AA-PB2NC6B , you can use a 11.10V 60Watt Power Adapter
If you are using battery: AA-PL2NC9B , you can use a 11.10V 90Watt Power Adapter
If you are using battery: AA-PA1N90W , you can use a 19V 90Watt Power Adapter

Looks like a power Adapter ~ 19V 90Watt is preferred

I bought a language CD set, and I do like it. The one thing I do not like is using the CDs every time I want to work with it. I have a Dell inspiron mini 10 with the external CD drive. The reason I bought the mini was for portability, but carrying the CD drive negates some of the advantages. How can I load the CDs on the hard drive and work from it, rather than the CD? I appreciate any help with this.

A:How do I save my language CDs on my hard drive and work from there?

This all depends on the software.
Not all programs let you copy the CD to your HD to make it work. If you tell us what software it is, it may help. What does the program access the CD for? Is there an option in the program, of where to look for certain files?

I have a Toshiba M700 tablet PC running Windows Vista ultimate 32-bit edition.

I wanted to run a program that requires me to have the non-unicode language set to Japanese.
I changed it to Japanese, and then proceeded to try and run the program.
Program runs fine.

I tried to connect my bluetooth headset to listen to my music. No luck. I get an error message about copy protection.

What's odd is that if I change the non-unicode language back to English, the headset connects just fine, and it doesn't complain about copy protection or anything.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.

I?ve lost the ability to see the picture when playing videos. The problem occurred after updating to windows service pack 3. I?ve tried uninstalling all my codec?s and re installing them (k-lite mega) also tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers for my video card to no avail,

Its almost as if the files are playing fine just not showing me the picture . for instance if i use winamp to play the files it allows me to manipulate the windows as if there was a video playing and the winamp symbol disappears from the middle of it.

Video inspector confirms that all the codecs are there and theoretically its should play.

O/S: Windows XP Professional
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 with AGP8X
Computer: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1400 MHz, 1.40GHz, 384 MB of RAM

Bascially to make a long story short here is the problem:

Basically the computer works if I disable or uninstall the video card. It doesn't work if I don't.
However I can't play games without the video card.

I feel like i've tried everything. I've completly reinstalled WinXP twice as well as tried repairing it. I've tried it with the newest drivers and disabling all startup items. If the video card is not disabled or unistalled WinXP will only load in safe mode.

Any ideas? Thanks.

A:XP works only if I disable or uninstall the video card.

What motherboard/chipset do you have? If you're unsure, do a net search on CPU-Z and download/run this on your system.

You most likely need to check two things:
1) Download and install the latest chipset, mainboard (and possibly AGP) drivers for your motherboard. We can help you with this if you provide the make/model of your motherboard.
2) Make sure you do not have a device in the PCI slot directly next to the AGP slot as some mainboards allocate them as "shared" resources with the AGP slot. If so, try moving any PCI card there to another free PCI slot.

A:Epson cx6600 worked fine, then stopped - want to uninstall

You overlooked something.... resolution

The problem is solved.... Two problems..... I had forgotten to sign on as an administrator, so it would give me an error every time. I signed on as administrator in my system win2k and I then began to remove all the epson applications. The printer software, however, is listed together in the add/remove program section and I had several epson entries. I was inadvertently trying to remove an epson c860 which has been dead for awhile. It gave me a window to reply , but it was hidden under other windows. When I discovered it, I realized that when I asked to remove the epson printer it was pointing to c860 instead of the cx6600. When I didn't reply to the small window to confirm c860 removal, it seemed to go off into lala land, so I would just cancel the whole thing. AFter I pointed to the right printer (cx6600 series), it removed it, but gave no indication that it did. I checked the register and all references to it were removed, so I proceeded to install the printer again. This time it worked, and everything is o.k.

i've been having a problem with my winmodem disconnecting ffrom my isp every 10 min. or so, and am in the process of getting a us robotics hardware modem as a replacement. while trying various fixes, like uninstalling & reinstalling the driver, and trying a different driver from conexant (it's an hcf modem using conexant chips), i've been unable to get the modem completely uninstalled. i go into the device manager, then the "properties" window for the modem, then into the "driver" tab. when i uninstall it, it no longer appears in the device list, but next time i start up the pc, it's back again.

how can i get rid of the old drivers completely, so as to have the cleanest possible setup for installing the new modem once it arrives?

I installed windows service pack 2 and i have not been able to connect to the internet since. It says I have an excellent connection to the network but the internet wont work!!!!

I've got an ATI Radeon 32mb SDR. I've been coming across problems playing a few games so I figured I needed to update the driver.

Unfortunatly I can't uninstall the old drivers. I'm trying to use add/remove programs to uninstall it but I keep getting a message saying "can't remove old or non-ati drivers".

The driver I'm using is: ATI2DRAG.DRV

I'm generally a bit guarded when it comes to installing codecs, and any potential consequence that could arise as a result of updating or simply altering the way my media players perform, particularly when they're performing virtually problem free. Currently that isn't the case, as my VLC Player suffered a rogue glitch some months back, which has since rendered it nearly useless, and Windows Media player to become my sole provider of video content.
I've had a "media player codec pack" installed for some time now, and while it hasn't seemed to harm anything, I'm not so sure its actually done much either. Its been trying to update itself, and I'm wondering if anyone here believes its codec pack is worthy, or even necessary?

A:Media Player Codec Pack for..?

I have no experience with that codec pack or VLC Player. But the codec pack seems to be equivalent to K-lite Codec Pack which I use. Other than recommending a pack for which I know works for me, I don't really have an opinion to offer.

I've only heard good things about VLC Player until now. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling VLC, to see if that fixes the glitch?

Hi all,

I have a USB bluetooth hardware device that I would use it before without problem. When I would put it into the USB port , the machine would install it's program automatically and I could use it easily. This time that I reinstalled Windows 7 I used the Driverpack for installing drivers. That pack installed a program named "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba" for that USB hardware device. And now neither I can use the bluetooth nor I can uninstall that program. Now I want to remove it but I get error (image 2)!!
Any solution?

OK. Here's a tidbit I just discovered and learned about Firefox (in general) and the FF Java Console addon (in particular) I thought i'd share

When you look at your Firefox addon extensions (Tools->Addons) under Windows 7 or Vista you may find (see image below)

When you update your Java, old versions of the FF Java Console addons weren?t uninstalled from FF (note I have 2 old versions of Java Console in example below)
The Uninstall button for the FF addon is dimmed! (so you can?t uninstall it!)

Turns out the solution is simple

Close all your FF windows
Now start FF again using rt click to Run as administrator
> Rt click Start->All Programs->Mozzilla Firefox, select Run as administrator
The Uninstall button for the addon should now work!

Hi all- I have another post here on some issues I'm having getting iTunes on my PC to recognize my music on my external HD (copied from iTunes on my iMac), so please take a look at that post if you have some ideas.

In the meantime, I have to give my iMac back to my boss (it was a hand me down). I want to delete all my iTunes music from the iMac and uninstall iTunes. If I snych all my music onto my iPod, is it safe to go ahead and deinstall iTunes on the iMac? In other words, do the music rights certificates and all the stuff that allows iTunes to play my music reside with the music on the iPod? I want to be sure I don't lose a bunch of ripped and purchased music in the process.

Thanks so much!

A:Synched all music to iPod, OK to uninstall iTunes on my computer?

Yep, you can delete the stuff from the computer and its still good on the iPod. What you should do is go to 'File -> Library -> Back up to disk' on iTunes on the Mac and get your stuff backed up, then you can take it to a Windows (or Mac) machine and authorize that copy of iTunes with your iTunes account information, because once you go from syncing an iPod on a Mac to a PC you are going to wipe that iPod initially, so you want an authorized computer to sync the stuff back up, otherwise you won't be able to play your DRM'd files.

It is also a good idea to deauthorize the computer you are giving back, this gives you back an authorization (you can only have 5 authorized computers) and prevents your boss from using your account. Which brings me to another thing you said, you can remove iTunes, but you don't really want to, its unnecessary and will probably go back on next time your boss does a Software Update. Just deauthorize it and remove your stuff from iTunes (go to each section, select all, right click and delete/remove).

A:Get Ubuntu online or uninstall it

Its unlikely your wireless USB adapter is going to work. Unless the CD has linux drivers, its unlikely to work. My suggestion is to go to your USB wirless devices support page online, and see if it offers Linux drivers.

However, your ethernet port should be working from the get go with Ubuntu.

Un-installing Linux can be easy, or very difficult, depending on how its been setup. If you wiped over Windows, and have only Linux, all you need to do is insert your Windows CD and then install Windows, formatting your hard disk along the way.

If you installed it alongside Windows, your going to need to remove the Linux partitions (which can be done in Disk Management in Windows), and then reboot the computer with the Windows Setup CD and then boot to recovery mode, and rebuild the MBR.. Which usually takes several attempts.

I ve got a couple of programs that I cannot seem to uninstall from my pc I m trying to get rid of a lexmark printer program as I have no need for it anymore The printer has been removed and is not connected I try to uninstall the program but a window keeps popping up telling me that I have to let it finish Can't programs. uninstall printing before I can continue The printer isn t connected I cannot find anything stored anywhere waiting to be printed etc I d really like to get rid of this before installing a new printer that actually works Also installed a game that came with the pc Don t want it on there now but whenever I click uninstall it just starts installing it again It won t even let me get rid of it through Can't uninstall programs. my control panel I m completly lost now especially as I m still struggling to get to grips with even turning my pc on nbsp

A:Can't uninstall programs.

For Lexmark:
Start> Administrative Services> Services> right click on LexBce Server> Set to Manual> Stop the Service.

Please note: is you disable this Service, it will disable the Print Spooler. If you try to install another printer, you will not be able to because this Service is stopped and you cannot turn it back on. (Been there/done that/learned the hard way)

As for the game,is it in the All Programs> Accessories> Entertainment> Games folder? Look and see- if so, open the Games Folder and do right click> delete on the game.

If you don't see it there, do a search for the name of the game, then right click> delete if you find it. Be sure the game didn't put itself on Startup. If it starts when you boot, it runs in the background and usually that prevents uninstall.

Start> Run> type in 'msconfig' without quotes> Enter> selective Start-up> Startup tab> find the game program and click to uncheck it> Apply> OK> Reboot.

A nag message will come up which you can check 'don't show this message again' and close on the X

This magical little symantec product somehow found its way on to one of our office computers. The problem is that it disables other software that might be considered dangerous. For example it shuts down VNC server which is one product that we do need for our remote administration needs. You would think that uninstalling it would be easy but it doesn't appear in the uninstall application list. Also if you exit it it will relaunch in a couple of minutes.

Any help getting rid of this would be appreciated.

I've used a program/browser plug in called DivX for a long time now, and have always loved its simplicity, but since I had to reinstall my operating system, I've been having problems getting it to work after installing it.

Basically, when I try and view a divx video in a browser, it makes the browser crash, so obviously something is wrong, however when I try and uninstall it, the progress bar just doesnt move :S and I cant run the initial setup again because it doesnt have a repair option.

I can't system restore because I've installed loads of other things since.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this problem?

Many Thanks

I recently tried to upgrade my version of itunes+quicktime only to get an error msg stating an older version could not be removed and the installation of quicktime would be aborted. I tried to manually uninstall from add/remove in control panel but got an error msg stating it could not find quicktime.msi. I did a seach for that file and found 2 instances of it and tried pointing the uninstall to them with the same outcome. I then tried to do a seperate install of quicktime and used a much earlier version hoping I could upgrade from there and "trick" the computer into it, but it "tricked" me by putting the older version somewhere where I can't find it and not doing what I want besides. I am considering just formatting the beast, but thought if there was a fairly easy way of recovering quicktime, I'd try that first.

A:Quicktime will neither uninstall or install

Sometimes using windows alone to uninstall things just doesn't work right. Some things require a little more "persuasion" to leave the system, here's what i normally use:

There are more different uninstallers you could try, if you wanted to.

A:Uninstall ubuntu


Boot into your XP CD enter the Recovery Console and type -

fixboot c:

That restores the XP bootloader.

Then boot in to Windows and go to Disk Management (Control panel/Administrative Tools)

and then delete the Ubuntu partition.

Look HERE for other commands that might be needed,and other scenarios.

on step #3-how do i
-'Temporarily Disable Real Time Monitoring Programs' and then
-'Uninstall File Sharing/P2P Programs'

A:How do I disable real time monitoring program and uninstall FileSharing P2P programs?

Well if it is not using the Windows Installer which typically these type programs would not!

Then boot to Safe Mode (no protections or realtime) and uninstall away!

Other than that what Realtime programs are you speaking of?

Hi all, this is my first post and have a big problem. I have MS Office 97 pro installed on my XP machine and I can't uninstall it. When I go to add/remove programs it asks for my original disk. So I insert my original disk and it doesn't give me an option to uninstall. I can only change options, there is no uninstall option on the disk. Help!

A:Can't uninstall MS Office 97 Pro from original disk

Others probably could give you a more knowleageable work-around but I found that CCleaner's Tool option to be able to initialize uninstall when I ran into the same issue you are now experiencing. Only once did it fail to initialize the uninstall.

Give it a try.

I have a dual boot system with Win 7 home and Ubuntu 12.10 on a samsung SSD. I want to uninstall ubuntu as I don't use it and want that space for Win 7. I am able to use disk manager to delete and resize partitions.

I've done some research and know that I need to fix the MBR, and to do this before I go about deleting partitions.

I have used the win 7 disk to try and repair my system with the plan to use
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /fixmbr

The problem that I have is that the repair disk will not recognise C:/ as it is on an SSD. I have an option to load drivers when running the repair disk, but I don't know what driver I need or where I can get it - any signposting would be appreciated.

Many thanks

I have designed a web site for my company which works well when run on local host. The problem is that when i uploaded it and published it some of the pages gets completely distorted and the language is changed to some asian language.

Below is the link of the site.

Below are the pages which gets distorted

Please tell me if any help

Thank you in advance,


A:Web Page distorts and shows some asian language>> no distortion>> Most TVs allow you to set a SAP- Secondary Audio Setting, meaning the display will be in both the original language such as English and a secondary language such as Spanish. I don't know what your "sap.htm" represents but could it be to show the site in a secondary language?>> looks like botched programming> view the source code.

You can find numerous sites with the ??????, which in both of the problem URLs. Check your programming for errors.

I'm looking to dive into the art of programming but have absolutely no idea where to start. I have been told that C++ is an option but perhaps its a little too advanced for a begginner? My main purpose for learning a programming language is to caclulate scientiffic formulas etc. and maybe even graphing them at some point: whether that be an output file for Excel or an actual drawn image. Can anyone recommend a language, books, and/or where I can get a hold of some cheap software to get me started?

Thanks for your input!

A:Uninstall Proset - does not solve "End Program - Sample"

For it to display End Task, means that it must have started
Have a look at Autoruns

Note: Only disable what you are sure of
I once disabled my personal firewall (or something) and Windows stopped running

after i reboot pc deep freeze is not responding ,i have upload a pic

A:I cant disable or uninstall deepfreeze

Try hitting F8 when the Windows XP screen is up and boot into Safe Mode. Should prevent it from loading and then you can uninstall.

My school used to use that and apparently it will survive a format. Neat little program.

I downloaded a program (PHP Coder, a PHP and HTML editor) about ten minutes ago, decided I didn't like it, and uninstalled it. The problem is, I told it to modify HTML and PHP files so that I could load the file and edit it just by clicking on it. After I uninstalled it, though, my PHP files would still have the PHP Coder image on them and are still called PHP Coder files. Also when I right click on HTML files, it still says Open with PHP Coder.

Any way to get rid of this?

A:Program Leaves Stuff After Uninstall

You need to reset the file association for html and php. Go to Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types > scroll down until you find the type - click to select and then click change, then select the program you want to open it when you select it.
