    How to remove "broken program/install"


    Hi,

    I had 2 disk in my pc, C: and D:, on D: I installed "python 37".

    Now I'm using a larger C: drive and not needing to install software in "D:" I removed the D: drive but forgot to uninstall python first.

    There is now a "Broken Python install" in installed programs that prevents me to reinstall python properly.

    Is there some way to remove that broken Shadow program?

    Thanks!

    :)

    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.

    Add Remove Programs in Windows XP doesn't finish loading program list?!

    Add Remove Programs in Windows XP doesn't finish loading the program list (It never even starts displaying any programs) and I believe it may be that a uninstall program messed up completely and Windows can't figure out what programs are installed because of it. What is the problem? Please?
