Hi everyone,

i got a free mini digital camera from a magazine subscription and it came bundled with ulead photo express 4.0se. After finding the camera to be useless i tried to remove photo express using add/remove programs. The uninstall program runs normally and closes but then the entry in add/remove programs stayed. Then i checked the programs menu and it was still there and working. I tried to use the uninstall from the cd itself but the same thing happens. I tried to get help from ulead but you need to register the product first and for some reason the program has no serial number and so I cant register. Is there any other way to remove te program or am i stuck with it?

Cheers

this will need some registry expertese possibly...i'll see if i can get some extra help for you....in the mean time...try uninstalling it from safe mode. just press f8 during boot...somewhere around when you start to see the windows startup stuff.

this is from another member Gerryf

in regedit, you navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

beneath this you will find a crap load of keys that have long GUID strings....you have to expand each find the one you're looking for and then remove the parent folder (GUID)

Then, remove the folder that holds the program files from C:\program files\NAME OF PROGRAM

Beyond that, you're getting in dangerous waters and it's best to leave remaining registry settings and files alone unless you know what you are doing.

You can also reinstall the program, then try add/remove control panel, which is advisable.

Or, you can download xteq

http://www.x-setup.net/

and use that to remove it from the list, and then delete the c:\program files\name of program folder
