Ever encounter a stubborn program that refuses to
be uninstalled? This Catch-22 usually occurs due to corrupt or missing files,
but often as not it's some unknown incompatibility Windows is incapable of
solving by itself. Luckily there is a solution and it's not too difficult
In our case, while reviewing Samsung's
NP540U3C-A01 Ultrabook we encountered difficulty removing an application
suspected of causing BapCo Sysmark 2012 to fail. It takes hours to install
Sysmark and nearly 30min to uninstall this massive benchmark, so any errors burn
through time like you can't imagine.
To solve the un-unnstallable program problem we turned to a application
called Revo Uninstaller - http://www.revouninstaller.com - this is a commercial
program with a short trial period.
Install the program and launch it. Once open the program will display a list
of installed programs on your PC. Right click on the program you want to
uninstall > let the program do its 'scan' and compile a list of Registry
entries for the application > check the entries to delete, click Delete, then
Click 'Select All' to mark all the files and folders for the application you
want to delete, double check your work and ensure no other programs are
mistakenly highlighted, then only when you are sure, click Delete. The program
is quite powerful so fair warning **exercise caution if you're forced to
uninstall a program this way.** If in doubt, Back Up your data first.
