Can someone tell me where to get a free program that uninstalls other programs? The program must also be 100% clean (no mlaware whatsoever). (no viruses ,spyware ,adware, trojans, worms, rootkits, etc.)

It's not all that difficult. And since I don't have a copy active on my system right now, I can only speak in generalities. Basically, you open the application, and have it take a snapshot of your system. You will want to click all of the options so that the snapshot is as complete as possible. Then install your application from within Total uninstall. It will install your program, and make a new snapshot.

If you need more details, I may possibly be persuaded to put together a mini-tut. The program is really easy to use though. If you read what it tells you, it is quite intuitive and easy to understand.

Sounds like it wouldn't work too well if you installed it after the fact - you have a problem, install total uninstall, make a snapshot, and try to uninstall the software that caused the problem.

I'm guessing IhateAbnormalities isn't just asking for reference, but because his or her PC is already toast. In which case, back up your data, format, install total uninstall, reinstall all data from backups, and reinstall programs.

Let me know if I'm way off base.

I don't know how to format. the program i am trying to uninstall was nt installed properly because my antispyware blocked it. So I do not have the uninstall information for that program.

uhh dont know if this is the kind of thing you are after but try Absolute Uninstaller 1.51

it is just like the control panel uninstaller apart from it removes everything - eg if you have a 30 trial of a software that ran out and you want to try it more you just uninstall it try the software again from start of 30 days

here is a link but there are many places to download it from

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninsta...installer.shtml

also comes with a registry cleaner which works like a charm

10/10 from me lol

For future reference:

You could always try Uninstall Plus! It is a program that is available on a trial basis HERE. I use it regularly and like it. Not only will it start a specific program's uninstaller, but then it will search the registry for any traces of the deleted program.
