I installed PsiWin 2.2 on my WinXP computer & it was ok for a few weeks. It then started freezing in places, so I uninstalled it using the 'Add/remove' software wizard.
When I tried to reinstall it I was told that elements of the old installation were still present and that I had to remove them before I could reinstall. I have no idea what is remaing or how to remove it.
I Restored my computer to the pre removal state using 'System Restore' but it will not connect at all to the Psion 3mx Any ideas?
the add/remove programs tool rarely removes all parts of a program, usually leaving registry entries, u should always use the programs own uninstall feature, if there aint one then use a third party program that logs everything a prgram installs. The only way to get rid of this program completly is to go through the restisty yourself, but u should only do this if u know what your doing.
I tried sys retore when my old man used add/remove for norton internet security, which didnt help in the slightest but that is an integral part of windows. I had to go through for a couple of hours removing all reg entries to do with norton and was eventually able to re-install.
Some programmes, when removed, give the message that some details need to be removed manually. This is usually the folder in 'Programme files'. As you have uninstalled the programme, look in Programme files' and delete the folder relating to PsiWin 2.2
I have managed to reinstall Psiwin by restarting the computer after using the 'Remove Software' program, which perhaps I should have done in the first place, but was not prompted to do so by the 'Add remove' Wizard!!
