Program Uninstall Information Missing In The Registry And Add/remove

Jun 5, 2006

Am Running Windows XP home with SP2 on a P4 machine,everything running smoothly except that I tried to uninstall a program through the control panel-add/remove route and even though most programs are listed there, only a few of them like 5 out of 40 odd have the change/remove button when the particular program name is clicked. It just shows size, used frequency and last used on, I cannot uninstall those programs incl. the officeXP package. I am absolutely sure all this was possible few days back and tried to get my system back to a 7-8 day restore point but this does not help as well

In registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall "
only 5-6 programs are listed and the change/remove button only shows up for these. Where did the rest go? all these other programs are running on my computer. What could be the problem and how can I resolve it without re-formatting


Uninstall, Or In The Add/remove Program Delete

Sep 25, 2005

When you uninstall, or in the add/remove program delete, do all the items of the program uninstall. Especially the drivers, I am having a small problem on the computer and I know its due to an unapproved windows driver installed by accident for my sandisk reader. How can you find out the drivers installed on your computer?

Remove Information Bar

Mar 15, 2005

I am so tired of this stupid information bar appearing every time I do something on the internet. I am a very smart computer user, so I really don't need to get all of these warnings.Thing is, I have no clue how to completely turn it off. It seems like MS completely integrated it into IE, which is what I hate. I don't want to switch to Firefox, so don't ask.

Remove Downloaded Update And Remove Registry Edit

Feb 21, 2008

I recently uninstalled Windows SP3 RC1 from my computer and reverted back to Windows SP2 through the use of Projekt (Project) Dakota. Before uninstallation though, one of my siblings had run this script to update to Windows SP3 RC2. I do not want to install the newest RC2, as I'm now waiting for a final release. I changed my Windows Update Settings to download but to not install, as it was already downloaded from yesterday. Is there anyway to remove the already downloaded but not installed update for Windows SP3 RC2, and is there anyway to remove the script (that tells the computer to download SP3 RC2?)

Registry, Privileges, Install/uninstall

Aug 4, 2005

I am having various problems with programs that won't install/uninstall, specifically uninstalling ZoneAlarm free firewall, which also happens to run its initial "Configuration Wizard/Tutorial" every time I log onto Windows from any account. When trying to uninstall, it falsely tells me I need to rerun them from an "Administrators account" I have two accounts on WinXP, both admins, and have even tried in Safe Mode 'Administrator' account and get the same error no matter what. I have scanned with RegistryMechanic(registered), Adaware Personal SE(free), Housecall (FullScan), and Norton Antivirus. No traces of virus/trojans, but BonsaiBuddy & eUniverse spyware kept coming back until I ran Adaware without System Restore on. Now there are no traces of either, but still having problems

How To Uninstall And Remove Corrupted Install?

Feb 20, 2009

I tried to install Windows XP Home on my new hard drive. When I tried to install it, it hangs at 39 minutes and gives me the error:An error has been encountered that prevents Setup from continuing.Setup failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The setup log files should contain more information. I kind of left it alone for a while and since then want to install Windows XP Pro. I tried to insert the Pro cd, but it wouldn't continue installation since it prepared installation from the Home cd. I've created boot disks with fdisk and format in order to just wipe the drives. However, the computer will not open the disk. I hear that it reads it but then doesn't load anything. I've used this same kind of disk for another PC and it works fine. I know the floppy drive on this pc works because when I tried to install Raid drivers previously, it read it.

Change / Remove Button Missing In Add / Remove Programs

Dec 3, 2008

I have tried previously to uninstall my HP Officejet G85 printer from HP Pavilion a1130n running XP Media. There is no Change/Remove button in Add/Remove Programs but the program is there, 150 MB, and the file suggested on the HP website for uninstalling older printers from XP produces a message that it's "unsupported" can't remember exact verbiage, been a while since last tried. Even reinstalled in the hopes that a message would come up to the effect "this program is already installed, do you want install to remove it prior to completing this install," but it just installs the printer again with a number after it ... I'm up to "hp officejet g series - 3."

Certain Program Won't Uninstall Or Install Again

May 8, 2007

I had the program "Reallusion ItsMe" and it quit working for me, so wanted to reinstall it. However, when I used Add/Remove, it gave me the message that "error installing ikernel.exe: (0 x 10000)." I thought I would remove the non-working program manually, so I deleted all the files. I then removed the entry from the registry. I did a search for anymore files with the same name and found a few and deleted those too. Well I tried to reinstall the program again and keep getting a message that there is a previous version in my system and it can't install. Geesh, what more do I have to do? There is no previous program left as far as I know, the only one left is in the Add/Remove list.

What is the trick? Safe mode and delete the folders? Search the registry manually?
