Re: [WIN8] Can't uninstall a program

Look again in the registry uninstall keys, it has to be there (AFAIK that is the only list used by WIndows).
Look into each subkey or do a search...

PapaDos - Thanks, I'll check it out. But honestly I went to each one of them and could not find it! And this seems to be a lot more programs listed in the control panel thanf there are entries in the registry.

OK, so I went to the key and Exported it. I opened it with Word and did a simple search for "Quick" and "Intuit". Word could not find either! So... it is pretty well hidden.

When I have time I will get the Sysinternals stuff up and running and that should tell me what is going on.

It's the "most busiest time of year" right now....

There seems to be a few more places to look for than I thought:

Try Revo Uninstaller. If Quickbooks is a 64-bit program then you need the pro version but it is a fully function free trial for 30 days so you can use it then get rid of it. It helped me when I could not uninstall Java and update it. I ended up buying the pro version because it works so good.

PapaDos! Thanks, I found the exact same information by using Process Monitor (Sysinternals). Here is the appropriate Key:

REGEDIT4
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{2b02f821-a9b9-458c-80e5-3ea8c0de8471}]
"UninstallString"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Installshield Installation Information\\{2b02f821-a9b9-458c-80e5-3ea8c0de8471}\\QBReplace.exe {2b02f821-a9b9-458c-80e5-3ea8c0de8471}#{2B02F82E-A9B9-458C-80E5-3EA8C0DE8471}"
