Unwanted program

  sutemil 18:42 21 Oct 2007

Cannot remove unwanted expired trial software. Tried to uninstall but Error 1721 'There is a problem with this Window Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not run'
Does not appear in Add/Remove programs, but all files in Programs.
Any suggestions on how I can safely remove these files ?

In these cases I usually go to the file, right click and delete. Running the registry section of Ccleaner click here will clean up all the rubbish.

What Gandalf suggests is what I normally do as well. Remove the main part of the program manually and let Ccleaner find the leftovers and delete it. Its always worked for me.

Download and run this, if your program appears in the list this will move it.
"Be Carefull How You Use It". Only use it on any program you are sure you want to delete/uninstall
