Preferred Solution: Trying to uninstall a program

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit.
I was having problems installing a program (Berlitz German Premier) where the install would just disappear halfway thru the process. A program would not appear under my programs list but when I went to Uninstall an icon for uninstall of the Berlitz software appears for each time I tried to install it. However I get the following error messages (see attached document with screen captures) when I tried to delete it the traditional way.
When I use Windows Install Clean Up utility, the program is nowhere to be found on the list; thus I can't use that program.
Any suggestions for how to get this program removed?

A:Program wont uninstall it with Uninstall or Install Cleanup Utility

Is this a windows XP program or one for vista. It looks like a compatibility problem. Check with vendor to see if they have a version for vista. Some older programs will not work with vista and never will. There is an option to run in capatibility mode with vista but does not always work.

A:Solved: Uninstall without Uninstall program

You can probably clean out any old versions of most of those programs using the Windows Installer Cleanup utility. Use it only on programs that have already been removed or absent from Add/Remove programs.


.Net Framework -- you are going to need -- so you should install the latest version.

Firstly, sorry for any possible interruption

I have the following problems and they seem to insist despite many of the solutions I've tried:
It must be something wrong with Control Panel / Programs / Programs and Features:
* Uninstall a program
* Turn windows features on or off
* View installed updates

-> I cant uninstall a program, the uninstall a program does nothing.
-> I'm trying to open "turn windows features on or off" and it says Bad image: -> osbaseln.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.
-> Also pressing the "View installed updates" shows the following error: Windows cannot find '::_26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064}....: -//- }' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

I remember having the problem after installing the latest updates. I tried system restore days before the event and the problems still insist. I'm not sure if this is the cause but it was as far as I can remember the last 'modification' for the system. I sure I did a disk defragment, browsing the web but I don't think this will affect the system.

And I'm sure I don't visit any 'weird' sites, mostly university forums, but just to be sure I scanned the whole computer with AVG. It found nothing as it always does. I've never had a virus issue from the first day I installed Windows 7, and it's almost 2 years since then.

Hi everyone,

I am trying to remove an online Bible program i had tried to install on my PC. I was just looking in the programs list and found it still listed. I tried to uninstall the program but it stubbornly refuses to remove itself.

A little background: I got the program from someone at my church, on disk. The disk was badly scratched and the software would never properly, or fully install itself. I got ALOT of errors during the install.
I never could install it, so i gave the disks back and thought I had uninstalled it before.

I tried to follow the instructions to reboot before uninstalling, but it did not work either.I am including 2 screenshots to help out.

Thanks in advance

Hi all,

I have a USB bluetooth hardware device that I would use it before without problem. When I would put it into the USB port , the machine would install it's program automatically and I could use it easily. This time that I reinstalled Windows 7 I used the Driverpack for installing drivers. That pack installed a program named "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba" for that USB hardware device. And now neither I can use the bluetooth nor I can uninstall that program. Now I want to remove it but I get error (image 2)!!
Any solution?

A:I can't uninstall that program

Can you go back to a system restore point. Before you install this driver. Or try removing the driver in safe mode.

Considering two anti-viruses on the same computer can cause issues, and since you no longer have AVG, I would recommend removing it. (It's likely a redistributable to run AVG, therefore unnecessary.)

Our first mistake was installing VISTA, the second was installing NERO 6.6 Version, finding out that it would not work with VISTA, and then uninstalling NERO.
Our problem is this.
NERO is bundled in a program with a title of AHEAD. Along with NERO there are two other programs. One is called "COVER DESIGNER", the second is"NERO PHOTOSNAP". Each of these are 13.6 MB in size.
We went to add/remove programs, seclected NERO, and uninstalled it.
The folder AHEAD is listed in PROGRAMS and contains the two items listed above:i:e Nero Photosnap and Cover Designer.

Although AHEAD is listed in program files on the hard drive, there is NO LISTING on ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS.

Please help me to get rid of this program AHEAD. We have tried praying but this didnt help.
Weve searched the net but they wont respond.

Greetings from Vancouver Canada, I have just tried to uninstall a little word processing program named Rough Draft, because it was giving me error messages. But it will not go away, for though it is gone from the control panel, it still appears in All Programs in Start. When I tried to manually delete that folder, it denies me access. There is still a short cut on my desk top for Rough Draft, and if I click it, it still opens Rough Draft, but then that file will not close. Instead, a little window tells me, ?Cannot create file\clip1.rtf? If I re-start my computer, the Rough Draft file will have closed. I am also getting notices on my desk top saying ?Access Violation at address 004848 in Module Rough Draft.exe. Read of address 0000023c? I would be grateful if anyone could help me exorcise this little un-dead Zombie and get on with my life! Thanks, IGY

I downloaded a program I thought I needed but after installing it I found it was not quite what I wanted so I decided to uninstall it. Lo and behold I could not find the program to uninstall it.

I was becoming very irritable because a pop up kept showing itself entitled "Priority DR." and a message below that saying there was a big problem with my computer.

Unable to uninstall it my friend said he would assist me.

He found the program and uninstalled it using the uninstall command in the directory for the program.

Lo and behold after a restart it was still there.

So my friend uninstalled malwarebytes malware removal tool and superantispyware spyware removal tool.

After running these two programs and a restart the pop still appears.

Can you help me get rid of it please?

A few years back when i had just started playing with comps as a newbie i incorrectly deleted program files instead of uninstalling them correctly. I just deleted the program files instead of using add / rem progs in control panel.

I want to uninstall them correctly but my problem is that i dont have the uni. (uninstall) parts of the programs anymore.

Do you know of any software that will help me remove several programs completely from my system .(without the uni. files)

I know i can reinstall the programs and then use control panel to remove them correctly but this will takes ages as there are a few programs.

Most uninstall managers require the original uni. file from the original programs but as mentioned these have been deleted.

However, when I clicked on 'Remove' a message appeared which said that the programs are running and that I need to stop the programs before removal can begin.

I bought a laptop that's not even a month old and has Vista pre-installed and I installed this program called AlienGUIuse, which is a desktop theme changer that uses Alienware icon's and various themes. Anyway, it won't let me uninstall at all, when I goto add/remove programs and click uninstall a form box pops up with tons of question marks. I have this program installed on my other desktop computer running XP, did a couple online scans that didn't find any viruses and it even uninstalled with ease. Is there anyway to uninstall this program from the laptop or are there any good free programs that will uninstall this? Another question, how am I suppose to check my laptop for errors? When I right click the C drive and check for errors, it says "it can't check disk in use". Are there any registry checkers that are compatiable with Vista?

If that is the case, click ok and it will carry out the error checking next time you reboot

But besides that there's a teensy problem. ... A few months ago I actually removed this program...I thought I did. So I open up control panel and go in add/remove programs..extreme messenger is still there but when i go to click change/remove an error message shows up saying, " File "C:\Program Files\Extreme Messenger\unins000.dat" des not exist. Cannot Uninstall." Now did I do something wrong or what? Is here a way to remove it once and for all? It's really annoying and I just want to get rid of it. By the way I'm using a Windows XP machine. Thanks!

A:can't uninstall a program.

You'll need to reinstall it to fix the uninstall.dat file and then uninstall it.

Hi all,

I have a USB bluetooth hardware device that I would use it before without problem. When I would put it into the USB port , the machine would install it's program automatically and I could use it easily. This time that I reinstalled Windows 7 I used the Driverpack for installing drivers. That pack installed a program named "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba" for that USB hardware device. And now neither I can use the bluetooth nor I can uninstall that program. Now I want to remove it but I get error (image 2)!!
Any solution?

A:I can't uninstall that program

Do a system restore to a date before you installed the driver pack.

FYI, there is no need to use a driver program with Windows 7

I am not sure how a program called Eraser Project ended up on my computer, but I want to uninstall it. However, it will not let me uninstall. The program is Eraser.heidi.ie. Any suggestions on removing this?


A:I can't uninstall a program

If the program is running in system tray, (next to the clock) right click on the ERASER icon,(it looks like a red circle) click exit. This will stop the program from running. Next go to the control panel, uninstall a program, click on ERASER in the program list, click uninstall. Or you could choose to do a system restore instead to remove the unwanted program.
Do you have any registry cleaning tool or any system utility tools installed? Such as, CCleaner. If not, you may want to download and install CCleaner once you have removed the unwanted program to help clean up you system. Here's the link.
