  1. Cannot remove a app/program


    Hi Guys

    I installed the GREENSHOT image program, decided I don't want it but cannot UNinstall it.

    W10
    I have tried different ways, including my favorite Revo uninstall.
    I keep getting message " cannot uninstall as you have it running"
    I cannot see it running anywhere including in Task Manager
    Keep getting told to go to properties r/c etc, tried but cant do it.

    Thought maybe find the exe file and delete that, cant find it.

    HELP !!! please

    :)

    Yes, the install was corrupted the first time you tried to install it most likely. Now the system does believe it is installed and/or can't find the Uninstaller; however, the program scanner can still find the program folder.

    Does the software work and just listed repeated? If so, use CCleaner. Under tools and Uninstaller (I think) you can delete the install listing with uninstalling anything.

    If the software does not work, then you are going to have to start the uninstaller from something else like Ccleaner, directly from the program folder, or some other third party app. Then reinstall the software after a restart.

    If that fails. Delete the program folder and user folder (Optional). Then run the uninstaller. It will say software not installed...blah blah, remove this listing? Click Yes. Then restart, reinstall.

    Cannot remove a app/program

    removed apps

    Hi Marianne,

    One way on how to reinstall apps is by downloading it from Windows
    Store. To isolate your query about reinstalling apps, we just have a few questions:

    • Are you referring to the apps that have been downloaded from Windows Store? If so, what are the apps that have been removed from your device?
    • How the apps got removed from your device?

    Meanwhile, if you're trying to reinstall apps that have been downloaded from
    Windows
    Store, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Click Start, type Store, then press
      Enter
      .
    • On the search bar, type in the name of the app you wish to reinstall, then press
      Enter.
    • Click Free or Buy and wait for the program to install.

    Please post back with the result for further assistance.
