Hi, I'm trying to uninstall Yamaha Softsynth XG completely from my system, I used "add/remove" AND the native uninstaller, but it still remains somehow and when I try to reinstall it, it says a configuration file on my system remains stating that the program is still installed. When I try to run the native uninstaller it seems to do something quickly and then it always for a reboot, over and over again.



I've tried removing reg keys, and deleting any and ALL files associated with this program, but it still complains, I'm out of ideas. Any help?

I need someone to find exactly what file(s) or regkeys keep track of the installation so I can try to reinstall and run this correctly, thanks.

Yamaha XG softsynth - S-YXG50. Ver.4.23.14 WDM US-S.

Thanks.

The yamaha XG UNinstaller, not add/remove programs. Add/remove works fine.

When I try to run the YAMAHA uninstaller it seems to do something quickly and then it always asks for a reboot, over and over again.

I've honestly given up at this point :thumbsup:
