When I have trouble removing programs that have corrupt uninstallers, etc I turn to this program called utool. It forces the program to uninstall, check it out let me know if it works. http://www.downloadthat.com/windows/catalog/Utool

I see that Utool is only shareware and comes with a price of $24.95 after the evaluation period. While Revo Uninstaller is Freeware. I'm not saying that one is better than the other. All I'm saying is one is free for a limited time and comes with a pricetag, while the other is free period.

CAVEAT: Always backup your registry before attempting to modify the registry.

Dont want to have problems with your computer?
Solution : install a good free anti virus, anti spyware & and stay away from misleading applications. Update your OS and vital programs as often as you can, to shut down those open security holes.
Stay away from shareware and trailware applications, avoid installing browser addins and toolbars. Read up on things before trying new applications.

Just to add to this, sometimes software authors will add registry keys that don't directly refer to their software - but rather to the CSLID number (as an example). They may also use different names and different abbreviations to disguise the location of the software.

While I'm not familiar with this software, I did do this manually to remove a Norton product from a customer's computer so we could reinstall it (he'd installed it with the BIOS set to the default date). Even knowing the different schemes that Norton/Symantec uses - it still took 2 techs over 4 hours to remove enough stuff to allow us to reinstall the program.

My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)
FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.

If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.
If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.
