I gave my friend my Gateway XP computer. I noticed that Intel Audio Studio was installed.  I am wondering what that is and if it should be there. If not, how do I get rid of it..

This is another form of Gateway bloat programs.  It won't hurt anything other than take up space.  This program has a registry setting which unless it is changed will not allow you to uninstall it using the add/remove programs.

 

To resolve this you will need to edit the registry.  Before you do this I strongly advise backing up the registry.

 

Backup Your Registry with ERUNT

  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
    http://aumha.org/freeware/freeware.php
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERUNT.exe

 

To resolve this issue, please perform the following steps:

 

Note:  After you navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE each additional option will be separated by back slash ( \ ).

 

To resolve this issue, please perform the following steps:

  1. Close Add/Remove Programs.
     
  2. Click Start - Run.
     
  3. Type: regedit
     
  4. Hit Enter.
     
  5. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{2205E3A5-DCDC-461D-8ED6-D6F2341D3B64}
     
  6. Double-click NoRemove.
     
  7. Change the 1 to 0.
     
  8. Close regedit.
     
  9. Click Start - Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs.
     
  10. Select Intel Audio Studio.
     
  11. Click Remove.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thank you for the info. I think I will just leave it alone if it is not conflicting with anything...

I had the same problem on one of my computers.  I looked for the key shown above but could not find it under that number.  I did find it with a search for "Intel Audio" inside the Regedit program.  I then changed the key from 1 to 0 and that worked.
