Alright, let me jump straight to the point. When I try to uninstall some programs I get Component transfer error. Alot of programs I am having this with. It is the most frusterating thing.

Component: Main App

Error: Unspecified.

This is pissing me off. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Nothing shows up in the event viewer.

Component transfer errors mean what they say: An error transferring a component.

This basically means the system isn't able to read a file it wants. Usually if this is from a CD, it often means the disk is no good. If its occurring on the hard drive it could be a sign of the start of a long road towards not working at all. Of course, virus scanners can also cause this behaviour.

Well, I mostly get this problem when trying to uninstall drivers, or utilities that came with the driver. I tried to uninstall and then reinstall PC Probe and I get the error. I can barely uninstall anything. :whistling:

have you tried uninstalling from safe mode, probably not relevent here because that works more for when a process is blockng the uninstall as opposed to the target is unreadable like now but it is worth a try I think

Thanks for the reply and the suggestion. Unfortunately, that didn't work and I still get the same error. Any more ideas? Thanks :whistling:
