WON'T LET ME UNINSTALL SOFTWARE

When I try to uninstall software, it tells me I don't have sufficient privileges and have to contact system administrator....even when I am logged in as the system administrator! I resorted to making all accounts on this home computer 'administrators' and it STILL won't let me delete any software!

Any or some specific software? Most likely a virus or something alike. Have you tried to uninstall it from safe mode or using some 3rd party uninstallers?

SOURCE: No Icons show up

When you have your desktop up & displayed, click the right mouse button & it will bring up a menu. Hover your mouse above the "Arrange Icons By" option and it will bring up a sub menu. If the "Show Desktop Icons" option does not have a check mark to the left of it, that is your problem. If there is no check mark, navigate down to it and click on it with your left mouse button and that will make your icons display.

Hi,



This is one of the most common questions/frustrations about Windows Vista. Even if you log on as an administrator, you don't really have administrative rights, thanks to UAC (User Account Control). UAC runs almost everything using non-administrator rights to help protect you from bad software that would abuse those administrator rights to change your settings or install viruses.

When you run a setup program, UAC should automatically prompt you to run it as an administrator using the UAC prompt (which Microsoft calls the "consent" prompt). If you don't see this, right-click the program, and then click Run As Administrator. Then, it will really run as an administrator. It should have prompted you, but for some reason, Vista didn't realize it needed Administrator rights. It wouldn't hurt to check the software developer's website for a version of the program made for Vista; that would also fix the problem.

If you really get sick of this, you can try disabling UAC-you'll be giving up a lot of Vista's security benefits, though, so I don't recommend it.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

I tried to remove Logitech Webcam Software,version 2.0,from control panel,& it just flashed the screen for a moment,then won't allow me to uninstall it. How do I uninstall this,please?


The software maybe running and preventing you from uninstalling.
Try boot up in Safe Mode (press F8 when the computer boots up) then go to Add/remove program to uninstall the program.

I can't uninstall Logitech webcam software 2.0 from the control panel, I push remove,& it just reverts back to0 the same screen


Many devoces have their own uninstall program. Push Start, then all programs, and look for Logitech, Webcam, and see if it has a program in the folder called "uninstall Logitech" or something to that effect.
Also, if you are upgrading to a different Logitech webcam software, the program might uninstall the 2.0 as a process of installation.

Why won't my printer let me scan my document to the computer?


Could be a number of things. I would suspect an incorrectly installed printer program. I'd uninstall the printer software and restart the computer and then reload.
If the printer is a HP, don't plug it in until the software tells you to. Otherwise it won't work properly.

Hi.

If you are unable to uninstall the software by way of 'Add or Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features', it will be necessary for you to perform a manual uninstall by searching the hard drive for files and folders related to the program you want to uninstall. then manually removing those files and folders.
Many programs will install files and folders in several locations on the hard drive. And, even when it is possible to uninstall software by way of 'Add or Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features', it is always a good idea to conduct a search of the entire hard drive then manually delete any files, folders, icons and shortcuts that are found by that search because many uninstall processes do not remove all files, folders, desktop icons and Start menu shortcuts associated with the software.
After making sure that all files, folders, icons and shortcuts have been removed from the computer, empty the Recycle Bin, restart the computer, then run a registry cleaner until no invalid registry entries are found. It is advisable to run the registry cleaner REPEATEDLY (always restart the computer before running the registry cleaner again) because fixing some invalid registry entries can cause other registry entries to become invalid.

If you are uninstalling the program because you believe that the installation is corrupt, these steps are especially important . Making sure that all files, folders, icons and shortcuts are manually deleted and using a registry cleaner to remove all invalid registry entries is the best way to ensure that all corruptioIf you don't have a registry cleaner installed on your computer, you can download the free CCleaner by clicking on the link below

Download Latest Version of CCleaner

If you use CCleaner, you must remember to click on the 'Registry' button on the left side of the window before starting the scan. And, with CCleaner, running the registry cleaner repeatedly will often cause the same invalid registry entries to be displayed over and over. If that happens more than twice, the only option is to allow those invalid registry entries to remain - because indications are that those invalid registry entries are not truly
invalid at all.

There is also an option to try and uninstall a program using CCleaner. If you click on "Tools" option on the left hand side, click on "Uninstall" and look down that list for Creatacard and try and uninstall the software using that option.

The 'Cleaner' option in CCleaner is a very useful tool for cleaning out unnecessary files and folders on the hard drive. So, it is also be a good idea to run the 'Cleaner' option in addition to the 'Registry' option.

Once you are sure that all traces have been removed restart your computer and proceed to re-install the software again.



Hope this helps.



Regards.

PA22 was installed on a computer that was running windows7. It was discoverd that PA22 was for vista and xp..We are trying to uninstall PA22 but it hangs up and won't let it uninstall.. what can be...


Have a look in c:\Programs(maybe also programs x86 look here as well) for the folder named nova or something similar, at least something which has some connection to the program you wish to uninstall. open this folder and look for a file called uninstall, this will be the uninstall provided by the software company. Try running this in compatibility mode for either vista or xp, may be worth trying both one after another. It sounds sas though maybe windows 7 has installed automatically in compatibility mode and not applied the same settings to the uninstall.

I hope this wasn't too vague about the folder name but as I dont have this software, this is a generic fix which can be applied to any software with which you are experiencing similar problems.

Hope this helps

I tried to uninstall ca internet security from my pc and it won't completely uninstall. I get this message: Error E9011: You do not have sufficient privileges to install or uninstall CA Anti-spyware....


Are you on Vista? If so, try going into CA Anti-Spyware folder, which may be under some other company name, and finding the uninstall icon, right click and "Run as Administrator" if the program still gives the error while uninstalling, I wouldn't know what to do next.
