A while back, ESET removed Winzip and now I'm left with this weird remnant of the listing on my computer. When trying to remove it from the uninstall programs list I get the following:

I think this is because the files were removed by ESET. I've tried using RevoPro and downloading the newest version of Winzip and uninstalling that, but neither of those options worked as recommended before on here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Install EVERYTHING (select either 32 bit or 64 bit)

 

When you click and open it....it will automatically scan....it is quite quick

 

type in whatever you are trying to find.....

 

then right click on it, and select delete

Thank you. Will just searching for "winzip" get all its remnants out of my system?

If there are remnants in the system relating to what was removed by Eset...it will find them.

 

If you are unsure what you are looking for etc....it would be extra wise to have a backup in place before you remove anything.....also a Restore point.

You can try to reinstall WinZip, then uninstall it.

 

Perhaps there is a file(s) missing that is required for uninstalling it.

The following Fix-it from Microsoft might be worth a shot:
