I had a program which became corrupted and so I uninstalled it, rebooted it and reinstalled it. The same corruption was there, and some of the settings were evidently from the old program. I know that when you uninstall programs sometimes not everything is removed.How do I uninstall a program so that absolutly every trace of it has gone, so a completly clean, install can be done ??
I am using video editing programs and when I open some programs I get errors like the following "Econvert Error at 00008ECA;'1.2' is not a valid integral interger value It is still in the system because I tried it on another pc and get the same errors. Why when I take something off my computer can it not just be gone ??
sometimes, files that are saved, are saved into the installed folder, the uninstaller will not delete the folder, once uninstall is finished, it should say if some files were not removed and may be removed manually, take a note of the folder names and delete them yourself. then try again after a reboot to install the program.
go to start>search>all files & folders. Type in the name of the program. Click "search now". Delete all it finds - but use a little commonsense as well; because if the program is called, let's say, "School Days" then all files called School and those called Days will appear, as well as the ones called Schooldays. But it's ususally clear enough which are the ones you need to delete.
