OK, I was just checking. Please use the application carefully.

If the Installer Cleanup utility installed correctly, there should be a shortcut in Start menu/Programs. All you have to do is doubleclick on the shortcut to open it.

I get a list that says select all,clear all remove, exit. Is that what I am looking for? I am trying to follow instructions on your website once before to run cleanup on destinations and adobe but I don't know how to do it.

PLEASE do not click on anything yet!

To use this utility, all you need to do is click on the item you want to remove and click on Remove.

Here, I've selected Adobe Reader 7. If I click on Remove, it'll remove the Installer referecne. That's all to it.

The Windows Cleanup utility is used to remove the installation reference so you can reinstall an application. This is what this is used for. It's not meant to "clean" anything as there is no option as you can see.

Unfortunately, I don't use Vista, nor do I have problems with Destinations on my XP machines, so I don't know what it really is or where to get it if you uninstalled it. I would need to do more research on it before I can help you with this.
