I've been using PowerArchiver (Rar) for encryption. Then I downloaded a later version for trial. I uninstalled the 2007 version and installed the later one. I tried it, decided not to buy, and went to uninstal it. In doing so I discovered that there is no 'Remove' button shown on the 'Add Remove programs' page. Only the words 'Used' and 'Rarely'. That's new to me. Other programs have the 'Remove' button shown and it works for them. I tried reinstalling my old 2007 version and that wont instal but pops up a message instead saying 'A newer version of this program already exists'. I'm lost. I cant uninstal one or instal the other and neither program works. Files with the extension .rar do not show the 'Rar' icon. Clicking on them pops up the 'Search the internet for a suitable program' message instead.

Can anyone help. I'm stumped :thumbsup: . Thanks

Do a search for the program's folder, open it and see if there's an uninstaller there
