Uninstalled Program Still Tries To Load

I installed a program called driver cure that was supposed to identify outdated drivers, but it did not install properly(? Possibly was not compatible with windows 7), so i tried to uninstall it using control panel // uninstall and it appeared to uninstall, but when i reboot the computer the drivercure program still tries to load and presents an error message.

If i do a general search of 'computer' it finds numerous items associated with this program but i can not delete them - says they are no longer available at the designated location. This appears to require a registry clean up or something to get rid of references to these deleted 'files'. How do i do that?

Program Were Uninstalled But Its Icons Are Still On Tray

I had previously uninstalled a few private programs. However when i enter into the "notification area icons" for wins 7, i am still able to see the unwanted program's icons in the list. As it seems that the "uninstall program" doesn't really remove the programs entirely. Therefore, may i ask the best solution to remove the unwanted programs completely? Lastly, i also suspected that the programs are still running and using on my adsl network. How can i stop it permanently from using my network since it is slowing down my internet speed?

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?

Adding Program Icon To Xp Mode App Menu

I installed an application w/in the xp mode virtual pc. After installation, there was an icon in the winxp application folder in my start menu. A few days later, i noticed it wasn't there anymore, but several other programs i had installed had icons there. I'm wondering if there is a tool that will allow an "after-the-fact" creation of one of these startup icons? I looked at the properties of the other shortcuts and see that it is pretty cryptic and contains a unique hex code, so i don't think this is something you can fat-finger.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. For the time being, i just uninstalled and reinstalled, but if it happens again, i'd like to save some time.

Permanently Remove Program From Start Menu Recent List

How to permanently remove a program from start menu recent list? I would like to know how i can prevent a program from appearing in the list of most recently used programs in the start menu under windows 7 (pro).

For instance, "notepad" is in this list, but i only start it by double-clicking text files, never through the start menu. In this manner, 4 of 10 recent menu entries are shortcuts i'll never use and which take away space for other, more valuable shortcuts. I know that i can remove items manually using the right-click-menu ("remove from list"), but i would really prefer a way to make this permanent. Any ideas?

Do You Want This Program To Change Settings On Your Computer

Do you want this program to change settings on your computer? Yes. You must be an administrator to run this program for the first time. This is my problem when i try to run a game. I am the administrator on my computer. My computer game disc will not let me play because it says i am not the administrator so i cannot allow the program to change settings on my computer. I am the administrator on my computer. Geek squad said there is something wrong with the game program. So i exchanged it and it still wont work.

Icons Issue When Accidentally Change Default Program

I accidentally changed the default program used to open .zip files under one of my user accounts (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Based on another user account, i figured out that it should be set to windows explorer. Changing it back restored the functionality - so zip files are once again opening correctly. But the .zip files now appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the zip icon?

Can't Change Default Program For Image Files

I have just upgraded from the coreldraw x4 suite of graphics/image processing applications to version x5 on my windows 7 ultimate machine. The new version runs fine, so i uninstalled the x4 version. I then wanted to make photopaint the default program for editing a range of image file formats (i use picassa as my album and right clicking to select the program to edit the image is really great).

For some reason, however, photopaint (x5) doesn't appear in the list. When i 'browse' for it i can find the photopaint .exe file. However, after i select it and click 'open' (and the 'browse window closes) there is no change to the default program. The only correct file:program association i can see is for the native corel image format (. Cpt). What gives?

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?
