Then try deleting the program folders, you may have to mark the folders as not "read only" (Adobe is BAD about this) then hunt down traces in the Windows subdirectories, some programs throw bits in there. You can also fire up Regedit and search for all references to the program and delete the registry entries by hand, or you can use CCleaner to get rid of them...CAUTION...back up your registry prior to making changes, inadvertently deleting some keys can render your system unstable or unbootable! If push comes to shove you can always use a bootable USB thumb drive with a small Linux distro (I use Slax) to delete the program folders for those files and folders that some software folks think the user would NEVER want to get rid of... I'm talking to you, Adobe! Good luck, Wiz + 0 Votes 2 additional methods databaseben 2 years ago you might try executing a system restore point via safe mode and re-instate the state of the operating system before that faulty program was installed. then afterwards you can simply delete its orphaned folder from the disk. if system restore isn't the method you want to use, you can try manually removing it yourself. it simply requires you remove the registry keys for it from the registry, deleting its parent folder off the hard drive, removing its file from the system directory and finally removing shortcuts from the desktop. + 0 Votes Uninstall the program TCHAPAIEV 2 years ago If the program does not appear in Revo , I think that the safiest method is to try REINSTALLING the program with its own installer ; if that works , uninstall using REVO ;the program should now appear after reinstallation in the main window of Revo ; retoring is a wrong idea because first it is not clear that it will work at all ; second if it works , it is all but clear that it will restore a config with the program installes ; by the way which program is that ? If none of the indications works , there is an intermediary step ; open regedit HKLM Sofware and delete all the keys in the program you wish to uninstall ; it usually suffices to be able to PROPER INSTALLATION and then run REVO OLIVIER GEBUHRER + 0 Votes If the program is from Microsoft a.portman 2 years ago IE 8 is an "update" not a program. You need to use the windows part of add and remove programs to remove it. Or Revo which is free and way better than the Windows built in remover. + 0 Votes Solved.... czly 2 years ago Not sure of the proper way to let you know that the problem was solved by reinstalling and then uninstalling w/Revo. This didn't remove everything (every file) but I just deleted the rest. Thanks everyone for your help...!
