I've been trialling XXClone for a while but I've not been 100% happy and today tried to uninstall it but with no success.
I've tried to uninstall via Windows add/remove and all appears to go well - but the software is still on my machine. I've tried to uninstall using Revo Uninstaller - but the software is still there. I also tried uninstalling via the start/run box - xxclone /uninst - no luck. I've tried to uninstall using XXClone's uninstaller directly but the result is always the same. I've even gone through the registry and removed any references to XXClone I can find but it just sits there on my desktop!!! There may be some I've missed, I don't really know my way around the registry too well. I don't mind going in there and having a look...
Incidentally it's Freeware Ver. 2.08.0. I've tried to re-install and that goes as expected, I've then uninstalled - and that goes as expected, all the appropriate messages coming up on screen after which the software is not listed as installed in either Windows add/remove or Revo - but the XXClone icon is still on my desk top!. I click on it and the software appears to run! I've not gone the full distance and attempted to make a clone as I don't want my second hard drive overwritten, but what appears on my desktop is definately not just a dead link to the software.
What IS happening?
Does anyone know if there is a dedicated uninstall software to completely remove XXClone?
I have looked through all the old forums and I can't see uninstalling problems mentioned.
Incidentally I'm using an elderly Dell Dimension 9150 3 Ghz duo core PC with 4 Gb RAM and XP Pro. The machine runs well and has Panda anti-virus and MalwareBytes anti-malware installed, both of which I run regularly.
There is a dedicated XXClone forum on Yahoo and I've posted there but it has very few posters so I'm not holding my breath...
Anyone any ideas?
Just a bit of additional information. I've re-installed XP Pro a few times on this machine over the years. I install from a disc with SP3 slipstreamed and only realised a few weeks ago that by doing that I'm not installing any updates that were released 'after' SP3 which I may originally have downloaded and installed. However I've not re-installed XP Pro for a couple of years at least and never had a problem like this before so I doubt if this uninstall problem is related to missing updates. The PC runs well though it doesn't break any speed records!
