Tiscali V.10 Dial Up - Difficulties Uninstalling

  deannatrois 03:40 18 Jul 2003

I put Tiscali V.10 on a PC (W98, PIII 500Mhz) to use it as an emergency dial up ISP. I have done this before and never had problems uninstalling it but this time I have found it impossible.

It comes with some ad pop up software too that will uninstall eventually.., after u have read a weep notice telling u that u are depriving them of income!

However, the Tiscali software just won't uninstall. Using W98 remove programme doesn't uninstall it properly (no surprise there) and when I searched for the tiscali files manually and tried to drag them to the recycle bin, it refused to go in and when I returned it to the search window, it had replicated - I had two of the darned things lol!

I did finally manage to delete the files I found but obviously left a file or so behind cause its now reappeared.

Has anyone else managed to defeat this little beastie that refuses to be exterminated?

Back up your files and do a full format and reinstall your OS Windows 98 is quick to install a pain but you will get rid of Tiscali i wouldn't use them even if they offered it free.
