Hi, I'm hoping you can help. I'm on a Fujitsu Laptop, Windows XP Pro version 5.1.2600 ...

I ran the trial version of Uniblue Registry Booster 2 and it stated it cleaned 15 Registry errors out of 403. I decided not to use it and tried to uninstall the program, but with no luck.

I now have a message on my screen (after uninstall and restart that I can't close out the window) which reads: (in the topic line in blue) "Uniblue Registry Booster 2" ... (in the message): "Fail to Read from dependent file. This application will close now!"

Here's what I've done so far:

1. Ran uninstall from the Control Panel and it no longer shows in that window (meaning if I go to Control Panel, Add / Delete programs, it isn't there). Subsequently I ....

2. a. Right clicked on "Start" menu.
b. Clicked on Explore all users
c. Clicked on Program files
d. Right-clicked and tried to delete the Uniblue Files that were still there DLL and EXE
e. Error message: "Cannot delete Registry Booster .dll: Access denied."

Please advise next step recommendations.

Thanks.

Mark

If you had it set to run at startup, it won't uninstall. Most programs are like that. There's supposed to be an uninstaller in the Uniblue folder. You might have to install it again to uninstall it correctly. I suggest uninstalling in safemode. When you're finished, download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and check the boxes by anything that refers to Uniblue

Mark, thanks. It looks like that worked, so I'll restart, double check and let you know. Love the photo of your puppy on the laptop ... touch typing!
