We have a Vista laptop and I am trying to uninstall some "free trial" software, specifically Microsoft Office and Norton. Every time I try to uninstall them, I get an error message that a file cannot be found. There are still directories on the drive for these programs.

Is there a third party uninstaller that works well?

Thanks,

Possibly, those programs have been uninstalled already in the past and what you have are just some leftovers.

Try free version of Revo Uninstaller: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
