I just recently resolved a memory issue with help from Bleeping Computer. Said issue was preventing me from installing the new OS. So I am a little late joining the Windows 10 rave. That being said my issue may not be an issue with Windows 10 specifically so bare with me. After updating and installing windows 10 I felt it was time to clean up my disk drives. This meant removing programs I've stopped using or will not need to use for the next year or so. 

 

I successfully removed several programs with Revo Uninstaller, until I came to VNC viewer. It was no where to be seen in the program list available for uninstall. So I tried the control panel pathway to find the same issue. I've done several internet searches but all that has come to the surface is several attempts to remove VNC Viewer as part of a larger group of programs and .exe files that were corrupted or infected by a virus or trojan. I don't believe this is a virus issue, my webroot scans have shown zero threats. I've also ran a few anti-malware programs with no reports relating to VNC Viewer. I apologize if this should be posted else where I thought perhaps this may be a known issue with Windows 10 since thus far their have been numerous complaints. 

 

Any advice on how to proceed would be helpful. My only thought is to save everything I need to one of my drives and do a fresh install but that seems a little over the top for a non-malicious file removal. Thanks

download and Install EVERYTHING    32bit or 64 bit depending on your system.

 

Allow it to scan......then type in the name of your program...VNC......if it finds it.....right click the entries you wish to remove and select delete.

 

There is also information available HERE

64 VNC Viewer, 64 bit OS but I am using Revo free. So I suppose that is the 32bit version.

I was just thinking about this further and I think VNC Viewer is stand alone and doesn't require install. Would that also mean an uninstall is not required? I've never thought about deleting stand alone .exe files before.

Revo pro is 64bit; I'm wondering if CTL PNL --> Programs module will do the job?

Sorry I wasn't sure if there was an additional way to run control panel programs module. I tried this before my OP.

Thanks for this program suggestion. This appears to have worked. There where some minor files left after the delete attempt but all other traces are gone. I'm going to use this nifty tool to get my documents/media in order. Thanks again!
