Re: [WIN8] Can't uninstall a program

said by sivran:

Yeah, the tool is a button called "Remove" in the Add/Remove Programs list. If it can't find the uninstaller, it offers to remove the program from the list.

If that worked reliably it would be nice. In this case the unistaller is present, but it fails to work. The utility is called the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility and is available from Softpedia. »www.softpedia.com/get/Security/S···ty.shtml

It was written for XP, so who knows how or if it would work in Windows 8. Revo who has a pretty good reputation has a "forced uninstall" that is supposed to not require that the monitoring program have been used during the install. »www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uni···res.html

Don't have any idea of how well it works and what the free trial does and doesn't do. The whole program is 27 bucks.

I will attempt to try the Uninstaller tool later. Thanks.
