Removing program (Windows XP)

  usualright 16:15 07 Jul 2005

I have installed various upgrade to Nokia software on my computer - When I check under control panel - add/remove programmes I find there are 3 different entries for Nokia I can remove 1 but not the remainder - I have tried Systemsuite 4 to uninstall but these programs are protected by Window Installer program- Any ideas on how to remove thes unwanted programs??

Try booting into safe mode then un-install from there. also run Ccleaner after the un-install. You may find that you need to turn off system restore if the above does not work, then try again. Ccleaner click here

Thanks for info - unfortunately this did not work - I still have 2 Nokia PC suite showing - I did try under safe mode with and without system restore to no avail any other ideas?

Might sound obvious, but have you checked if there is an uninstall option if the Nokia software is listed in Start>Programs?

Yes - it has - but it does not help

Have you tried reinstalling all the sections, then uninstalling from Start>Programs and then, if still necessary, the final one from Control Panel?

When all else fails, contact the supplier.

It could be that the one you have un-installed is preventing you from un-installing the other two.

This sometimes happens with upgrades to a program or application if you remove in the wrong order then there are parts of the code missing and preventing you from removing the rest.

Install the one you have removed and try un-installing in a different order. IE: remove the one dated the earliest then the second, finally the third and final upgrade or version. This may fix the problem for you.
