Win 7 Says I Must Uninstall A Program Which Is Not Currently Installed

Windows 7 says i must uninstall a program which is not currently installed on my computer before i can continue with the windows 7 installation. When i attempt to install windows 7, i get a message saying that windows 7 is incompatible with a program called "perfectdisk" and that i need to uninstall this program before i can continue installing windows 7.

However, this program is not listed in the list of installed programs through the control panel. How do i uninstall a program that is not there? I also searched for a file by this name on my entire hard drive but a file does not exist by this name either. Is there a way to bypass this incompatibility and install windows 7 anyway?

Uninstall Printer Software And Drivers / Program

How do i completely uninstall printer software and drivers if control panel uninstall a program utility results in error message? I have a brother mfc-9440cn multi-function printer/fax/scanner.

When i bought my new 64-bit windows pc, brother didn't have any windows 7 drivers, so i used the original (windows xp) software to get the device up and running. It did work perfectly - i could print but not scan. Plus i wasn't able to set it up as a shared printer so other family members on our home network could print to this device.

Now that brother has 64-bit windows 7 compatible software and drivers available, i'm having trouble installing it. When i try to install it, i get the message that "mfl-pro suite is already installed. Do you want to uninstall and then proceed with installation?" I click yes and then within the brother mfl-pro suite installshield wizard i get the message "an error occured during the installation. Please restart your pc, ensure all active applications are closed - then reinstall "mfl-pro suite. "

I have already tried the control panel uninstall a program utility and end up with exactly the same error message.

I have downloaded an uninstall utility from brother and end up with exactly the same error message.

I tried looking under regedit, hkey_local_machine > software > microsoft > windows > currentversion > uninstall for any stray registry entries relating to brother. There aren't any!

I need to find a way to completely remove the now non-functioning mfl-pro suite software and brother drivers so that i can install the new windows 7 compatible version. Can anyone help with this?

Uninstall Program Installed Using Compatibility Mode

I have been a satisfied user of adobe photoshop album 2. 0 for years and have a large library of photos and associated information that i wanted to migrate to my new windows 7 pro machine. I found that although the program would install and run in compatibility mode, the programs database is incompatible with win7. I have now installed the program in xp mode and things are finally running smoothly.

One problem: i would like to uninstall the copy of photoshop album which was originally installed on the win7 operating system. When i try to uninstall in the control panel/programs window, i get the error: this operating system is not supported and the uninstall shield wizard shuts down. I have searched for an uninstall setup.exe for this program and cannot locate one. Is there a way to use compatibility mode to run the uninstall wizard?

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " Error when double clicking folder or c drive. Can open c drive or folder by double clicking. I have had an issue for quite some time with open my c drive or any folders. Every time i click to open either one, i get: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default program control panel"

However, if i right click on the mouse and choose open, i can access the drive/folder with no problem. How do i correct this back to ordinary clicking on the drive/folder?

All Program Settings

I have a question about how to organize my "all programs" settings. When i click start then all programs, all my folders are at the bottom and misc. Files are on the top. I would like to put the folders in alphabetical order and have the misc. Files last. It was easy to do on all the other window's programs but i can't seem to find a way with windows 7.
