Hello. I recently installed a program called Club Player Casino. I used it for about 10 minutes, then decided I didn't want it. I tried uninstalling the program and was prompted with "Cannot find installation path. Uninstall aborted" or something similair to that. This happens when I try removing the program through "Add/Remove Programs".
When I go to the installation path (which does infact exist in my Program Files) there is no uninstall file at all. So I decided to try a system restore to a time prior to the installation of the program. When doing that, the system restarts as normal, then prompts me saying "Cannot restore system to this date, no changes have been made to your computer." I tried this with 3 other, earlier system restore points and had the same results. F.Y.I. I am running Windows XP and Norton Anti-Virus. A scan with Norton revealed no threats.

This is becoming quite frustrating. The program doesn't appear to be malicious in any way, but Im not certain about that so Id like to remove it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Gift

Have you tried System Restore from a command prompt in "SAFE MODE"?
