Hi there.
The reason you get that message is because the uninstaller has become corrupt.
You have to manually delete the program from program files on c drive and also from all programs in the start menu.
Download and install CCleaner to get rid of any residual files or registry entries from the computer.

Get CCleaner here >>>>>

Try to remove yahoo messenger and re-install it again.
If you can't uninstall it try this:

If the above method does not work for you, try the following methods to solve the problem.
1. Open Program Files >> Yahoo Messenger and find the file UNWISE.exe file. Double click this to run it. This will un install yahoo messenger.

After downloading google earth--I get this error message constantly no matter what program I am trying to access. I have un installed the program to no avail. c:/proga~1/google/google~1/ GOEC61~1DLL is...


Install, then reboot your computer. Make sure when you install, you are signed in as the administrator (that you have rights to install programs...). Once you log back into Windows, go to add remove programs and uninstall Google earth. Reboot again.. Make sure you are not receiving the error. If not, try installing again. The problem seems to be that the dll in question is not registering with the system properly.

Trying to reinstall norton ghost v14


you need to remove Norton with Nortons own removal tools. Add/remove program not the same thing as it leaves stuff in the registry. Go to norton.com and get removal tool..Run it, then try the re-install.

Can not download any programs


Hi,
The windows backup feature does not back up any installed programs , it would only backup up your data files , but no exe files. But you are not able to install a fresh copy of the programs over the internet and from the cd.
Try installing these programs from in safe mode of windows . To start the computer you need to press the F8 key a couple of times before windows starts up.
If the same is not working you need to redo the operating system once again



Thanks

Yahoo messenger problem


you might have installed third-party plug-ins, audibles or emoticons on your yahoo messenger. these programs are automatically loaded everytime yahoo messenger starts. they work fine, not until you reinstall yahoo messenger or upgrade it to a newer version causing an internal error when they are loaded. first, remove/uninstall all these programs from the add/remove programs in the control panel, be very careful when doing so and be very sure of what you are removing. then uninstall yahoo messenger. if error still occurs during the uninstallation process, you haven't removed every program/emoticons/plugins connected to your yahoo messenger. when uninstallation is successful, restart your computer and then delete the yahoo messenger folder in the programs folder on your system hard drive. then you can reinstall yahoo messenger before adding/installing your emoticons or plug ins again.

Hi gig14789,
Never do a re-install unless you run the un-install software or remove the program from within add/remove programs in control panel. You're software is all messed up now. Lets try this.
Turn off you're printer (press the on/off button). Click the start button & slide up to & click on control panel. Once opened. Double left click add/remove icon & it will open. Find Lexmark & un-install the software by clicking on remove. Un-install/remove anything having t do with the Lexmark printer. When finished close all opened windows. Restart you're system. When windows has finished loading I need you to creat a folder on you're desktop. Name it (Lexmark Z705). Click on the link below.

http://search.lexmark.com/printer/US/en/15L0000
Save this link above to you're favorites. (You may need to come here again).

Scroll down the page till you see, Lexmark Z705 - Drivers and Downloads. Click on you're operating system.
Click download now. Choose to save the file. Save the file into the folder you created (Lexmark Z705). Once down loaded open the (Lexmark Z705) folder. Double left click the .exe file.
Follow the instruction & on screen prompts. The software will tell you when to power on you're printer.
If this fails to install correctly please post back in this windows & list any error messages you might receive. List you're operating system too.

Good Luck!

Mike

Excel software not started


MS Office repair:
Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel. Click the "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility.
That should fix it, good as new.
Be sure to have your INSTALL disk handy (for all Microsoft products).
