This is more then likely caused by the program folder being deleted but not uninstalled using the uninstall program. If you right click on the shortcut and click on properties it the screen that opens will show you where the shortcut is pointing to. Follow that path in explorer and see if the folder has been removed. If it has and you want to use the program again you will need to reinstall it.

Cannot delete avira antivirus,when i erase in my folder.


You have to delete your antivirus from Add or Remove Programs Section (Start->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs-> Search for Avira and click on the right button (Remove). Just erasing your folder will not completely delete your Antivirus.

I hope I helped you

Now i cannot instal any antivirous .system promt is onather antivirous is running pls unistal it first. but in computer i donot find the file


You do not need antivirus if a anti virus program is already running. If you must have the anti-virus program you are trying to install then you will need to uninstall the old one. I would just leave it alone since you have one already installed. Unless you paid for it.
To find the other antivirus software you will have to go to Control Panel and go to programs add and remove look for anything that has antivirus listed and delete it then you can install your new one other than that I use one at a time. John

I cannot remove "The Weather Channel" from my system because "INSTALL.LOG" is missing. How can I correct this problem?


First try to uninstall it using a force uninstaller program like handy uninstaller (click here to download handy uninstaller) [open the link, click "Click here to start download"]. Install it and run the program, all the installed programs could be uninstall using this small program. If you can't still uninstall it, delete the program from the handy uninstaller's lists and open your C; drive folder, then "Program Files" and delete the folder "The Weather channel". After the folder has been deleted, download this, (click here), and install it, run the program and click "Registry", then click "Scan for issues", wait for few seconds and again click "Fix selected issues", and "No", again "Fix all selected issues", then "Ok", and close the program. Now restart your computer, the weather channel should be cleared from your system by now. Not a trace of the program will be available on your system including the registry entries. After you are done, you can uninstall both the programs you've just installed.

The second program (ccleaner) is a very effective tool to clean your system and registry entries, you can run the Cleaner by clicking the "Cleaner" > "Run Cleaner" button.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.

I need to uninstall Micosoft Intrnet Explorer so that I can reinstall IE7. I keep getting s message that a more recent one is on my computer but I cannot find it to ubinstall it.


Click "Start" then "Control Panel" --> "Add/Remove Programs" --> "Add/Remove Windows Components" --> click the "Internet Explorer" and uncheck it, click "Next" wait for few seconds until the uninstallation is finished and click "finish" when done. Close the windows and now open, "My Computer" -- > "C:" drive --> then "Program Files" and locate "Internet Explorer" and delete the folder. Now restart your computer and repeat the same procedure from "Start" then "Control Panel" --> "Add/Remove Programs" --> "Add/Remove Windows Components" --> click the "Internet Explorer" and uncheck it, click "Next" wait for few seconds until the uninstallation is finished and click "finish" when done. That should work. Even if you don't repeat the steps, by default, windows Xp has the Internet Explorer 7 with it.


If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

How to remove "Live PC care" program that was installed to my PC without my consent? Thanks a lot


If you are using windows xp then you need to access the Add/Remove programs list. You do this by clicking on your start button and then going to Control panel and then selecting Add/Remove programs and Live PC Care should be located somewhere in that list. You then have the option to unistall it.

If you are using windows vista it's the same thing although it isn't called Add/Remove programs, it's called Programs and Features. This will also bring up the programs you have installed and you can then proceed to remove Live PC care. Good luck. Andrew
