I uninstalled this program (NetFusion 8) and I did a system restore to go backwards and i'm trying to remove it again, but when I press the button it doesn't do anything. I went into RegEdit and tried to find the program and it isn't there. This also happened to McAfee.

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, right click any file, click delete, confirm

Reboot to safe mode, select the administrator account

Move the unwanted folders from programmes files to My Documents

Reboot the PC to safe mode / administrator account

Can you delete them from My Documents now?

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up, disable all, apply, reboot. Tick do not start the configuration utility as it gets to the desktop

Reverse msconfig / start up by clicking enable all, apply, reboot
