I am completely in the dark on how to solve your uninstaller problem.
We may need to get a registry cleaner, but we'll focus on that later.

The good news is: I think I found a way to solve the Control Panel and IE problems.

Download and unzip BFUzip from http://computercops..../Merijn/bfu.zip
Run the program and click the Web button as shown here:

Use this URL to copy into the address bar of the Download script window:

Execute the script by clicking the Execute button.

If you have any questions about the use of BFU please read here:

Let me know if it helps.

this is the log from BFU:

BFU v1.00.7
Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600 SP2)
Script started at 11:53:30 AM, on 9/23/2005

Failed: DllUnregister C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.dll|1 (file not found)
Failed: FileDelete C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.dll (operation failed)
Script completed.

I first ran it with vgactl.cpl in a seperate folder, but replaced it and ran it again. The above log is the run after the file replacement. Afterwards vgactl.cpl is not in the system32 folder anymore, so I assume it was deleted.

:tazz:

I'll go ahead and take a look at the registry or possibly a cleaner.

A little advice on that, if I may:

Use the default setting to make backups. :tazz:

Thanks for the suggestion. Either I'm not using all the registry cleaning softwares wrong or that it is just not working. I'm thinking to myself that maybe I'll just reformat, reinstall ... everything ...

Before you give up. In HijackThis click Config > Misc Tools > Open Uninstall Manager

Copy what you find as the uninstall command for NSIS into your next post.

Maybe we can get rid of it in another way.

No. I'd like you to use the Uninstall manager in HijackThis to find out what the uninstall command is for NSIS.

I'll try and explain. Compare Add/Remove Software as nothing but a dressed up list of links to uninstall commands.
HijackThis is able to peek into that list, so under "uninstall command" (see screenshot) Posted Image

you will find the lionk that was left there by the installer when the program was installed.

And that is what I'd like you to copy and paste into your next post.
