When I try to uninstall a program I downloaded (Called Freecorder) I keep getting this message.

"Invalid Uninstall"
I did uninstall the program once with no problem when it wasn't working properly, the only unusual thing to occur was the uninstall linked me to thier website with multiple tech questions as to why the uninstall, this 2nd uninstall is not going so well

Thank you in advance.

If you do use Revo Uninstaller (which I highly recommend over Windows remove programs)

Download and install free version of Revo Uninstaller.

For best results, use Advanced. If successful, and asked for a reboot, say no.

Then click Next to begin looking for leftover items. Check only the bold entries.

To make sure you get everything, if any entries-usually the last thing listed and not in bold-have a + sign click on the + until you see more bolded items. Check those items to delete. Click next and let it find files you can safely delete.

If a reboot was required, do so after deleting files and folders.
