can't uninstall logitech mouse

  Cal 15:14 21 Oct 2004

Running win xp.

Can't seem to uninstall this mouse.

There is no Logitech uninstaller so I tried using add/remove programs but as the '0%' of the uninstallation process appears on the screen, my system shuts down and reboots.

Any ideas?

Try to re-install the mouse drivers, let the system reboot and then uninstall it. That worked for me.

Will try that and get back later.

Still having problems.
I tried to reinstall the drivers for this mouse but after installation completes, the system hangs on a Logitech blue screen and task manager says the installation program is not responding.
The system still shuts down and reboots when I try to uninstall from add/remove progs.

Any more ideas?

Try this Right click My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager/Mice and other pointing objects /Right click on your logitech Mouse and select uninstall

Tried this already.
After a warning the device seems to uninstall ok.
The problem is that the Logitech program is still evident in the add/remove programs and the system still shuts down and reboots when the '0%' of the uninstallation process begins.
Don't know why this is happening.
Also after reboot, the Logitech mouse tries to reinstall itself(!) but gives a warning about the driver not being signed.
Seem to be going round in circles here.
Got any more suggestions as this mouse does not seem to want to leave!

Try in Safe Mode

Thanks for the suggestion but tried in safe mode already with the same result.
Presently on Logitech website seeing if they have a solution.
I will come back here when I have something to report.

Disabling the "restart on system failure" feature may permit the exact cause to be isolated:

Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery, click Settings. Under System Failure, untick the box in front of Automatically restart.

Try uninstalling again and post the error message that you should see.

Went to 'startup and recovery' settings as you suggested but under 'system failure', 'automatically restart' is already unchecked.
Dead end there I'm afraid.

Tweak UI ? I don't use it but I am led to believe that you can remove programs from Add or Remove Programs. I would wait for confirmation of this statement from someone who has experience.
