How To Remove All Traces Of A Download Please.

  Big L 266 18:02 30 Sep 2010


I have nearly,but not quite,successfully removed every last trace of a Magix trial download.I have used the standard uninstall processes but bits appear to remain.

How do I remove every last remaining trace of the Magix trial download please? (I want to download a pc-dvd version of it which is different.)I'm sure there are hidden bits.

My OS is Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit.

I have to go offline for a while.Any help and advice would be most welcomed and appreciated.

Thank you.

Try using click here the Free Version will do it ... you might need to reinstall the unwanted program first, then use Revo.

During the un-install process you may be asked if you want to re-start your computer, DO NOT re-start at this point, let Revo continue. You will eventually get the option to Select All and to Delete - DO SO. You may be given the same options a second time, again DO SO, do not be picky, just accept all that Revo chooses.
After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.

Nontek....Thank you very much for your kind help.I forgot all about the Revo factor! I can't reinstall the unwanted programme sadly as it was a limited time trial which has now expired.My own fault and nobody to blame but myself. Nonetheless thank you again for your help.

Just have to go to search and type in Magix and if anything shows be carefull as what you remove.

when doing search for magix also opt for adv search.

also search in registry

buteman & sunnystaines....I did use the 'Search' for anything with 'MAGIX' or 'Magix' and promptly removed whatever it found. I will try the 'Advanced Search' mode but I'll not touch the registry in case I screw it up.I will run my Iolo System Mechanic and hope that will do the trick where the registry is concerned.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Have you tried the free edition of Revo Installer. This, I find, removes everything, even from the registry, Kind regards

Try running the registry checker in CCleaner as well, that might find some odds and ends of Magix as well.

That is what Nontek said in the second entry.
