/ Uninstalling a Program
"Setup.exe uncountered a problem and needed to close"
Grateful for any advice please.
I use CCleaner to run uninstalls. Seems a bit better at gettign rid of sticky stuff like Skype and Apple.
I also use the 32 times overwrite clean up free space and erase the pictures of Darren Jackson's cow punching orgy
in general I suppose that the standard uninstall program supplied is not working. Often vendors don't care much about the quality of their uninstall program (why should they?)
try googling for a free program that does uninstalls not through the Control Panel.
The amount of sh1t we have to deal with as a result of CCleaner and Registry Cleaner....! Leave the registry alone. It does not need cleaning! :-)
You can manually remove programs as follows:
The genuine speed gains you can make on your PC are by only running programs and services you need. We get really fed up when Registry cleaners decide that all the registry entries our program legitimately creates and uses get "cleaned" in the name of efficiency. And then we get the blame. Same goes for antivirus software. If you don't click on pictures of fat women, you don't need them.
I tried to uninstall Skype and MSM and neither seemed to want to disappear using the usual stuff. I used CC to do the job.
Surely that wouldn't interfere with the registry unless I elected to go on an unistall binge would it?
What is the program you are trying to get rid of.
Run msconfig and click the startup tab and unclick anything from the location of the program. Files and where they are from will be listed if your on the right tab. I would check but i am on linux and cant remember.
