Removing partially installed program
Posted 15 July 2005 - 07:42 AM
So the install aborts but though it is listed in remove programs there is no way to uninstall it. But since it is listed I cant install any IP4 drivers which would work fine.
Is there a way I can manually get it off. thank you

There are 2 ways to remove invalid entries in add/remove programs.
You can use the registry, wich is very complicated because theres a folder and a subkey for each item there and its often confusing and you can invalidate your add/remove programs menu.
you can go to ccleaner.com and download bleep cleaner. Its a wonderful little tool that cleans all the bleep out of the guts of your computer. It also has a built in tool that allows you to delete invalid add/remove program files by just using the same old interface, highlighting the file. And clicking delete registry entry. It also has a tool during the scan that scans for invalid registry entries from uninstalled programs. I highly reccomend this product.

Whenever you make ANY registry changes, ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO MAKE A BACKUP COPY FIRST. Mucking about in one's registry can do very serious damage to your whole system, so do so with the greatest care.
You can do a search for a folder that contains whatever part of the application you downloaded, and delete it. This may leave some gunk in your registry, but will be a much safer method.
