+ 0 Votes Are they portable versions of the apps? seanferd 5 years ago Those don't install, you just click on them to run. If you double click on an installer file, it should install. It should have absolutely no connection to previously installed software, whether or not that software has been uninstalled. If there is nothing installed (check the Program Files directory), nothing will run, unless the file you are clicking on is a portable (self-contained) app. + 0 Votes Sweet Thanks Animathecaniba 5 years ago Love CCCP, but the CCleaner helped on the issue.

OldER Mycroft Updated - 5 years ago //Off Topic RANT: ...It never fails to amaze me how Americans, despite apparently being so proud of being Americans and flying American flags all over the bloody place (everywhere you turn there's an American flag!) and celebrating your very own '4th of July' and finishing off speeches with the immortal words "..and God Bless the United States of America!" and going to watch American Football and sitting watching American Baseball etc, etc, et al, et al, can then get annoyed because you can't have your STATE in your address line - NOT YOUR COUNTRY FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD TO SEE - JUST YOUR STATE! Of course! - The rest of the known world SHOULD know where NY is because it's American, even although you don't want anything openly American in your address. Very odd indeed. :^0 My address would then appear as: Tain, Ross-shire. Queuing-up all the inquiries from Peers asking where Ross-shire was in terms of Global Co-ordinates!!! //End of RANT// + 0 Votes The user guide suggests Jacky Howe 5 years ago Uninstalling VLC Windows Click on the Uninstall VLC icon that was created during installation http://www.videolan.org/doc/vlc-user-guide/en/ch03.html#id300093 You may have to reinstall and then uninstall. + 0 Votes two differn't steps bboyd@ 5 years ago a. Use CCleaner to clean registry or your tool dejour. Then use the add/remove program function in CCleaner to remove any remaining uninstall structure.
