Hello,

I am trying to un-install QuickTime  from my Vista computer , when I try I get an error message ,which really is just double Dutch to me !! It reads ; The following file does not exist or is not a valid uninstallation log file. C:\windows\system32\QuickTime\Uninstall.log.

I have tried to remove it using -- MyUninstaller-- without any luck and getting the same warning.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated, Thanks from Neale.

Hi yooser :)

It seems like you're missing the uninstall.log file to uninstall QuickTime. What I'm suggesting you to do, and it might seems weird, is to reinstall QuickTime to that file can be created/added back and then try to uninstall it. If it doesn't work, you can always try to uninstall it using a powerful uninstaller like Revo Uninstaller.

Hello, 

I have just had a quick try of your suggestion , when I try to re-install QuickTime I get the same error message, which seems strange to me, I might add that my computer skills are of the 'basic' nature !

I'll have another go later on in case I am missing something.

Cheers Neale.

Well, what I suggest you to do is to use Revo Uninstaller Portable (this is a direct download link). You don't have to install Revo in order to use the portable version. Just download the .zip, extract it then launch the application. In the list, pick to uninstall QuickTime and when the installer fails, let it continue (click on Ok naturally) and then scan the registry and your system for every keys, files and folders left of it, select "Select all" then click on "Delete".
