Try using third party Uninstaller applications if ubale to uninstall using Add or remove programs..

You can try Revo Uninstaller - a free uninstaller application available for download from link below :

Copy and paste the entire link in a new Internet Explorer address bar and press enter....

If unable to open the link, go to and type Revo Uninstaller in the search field..

This should work

Cannot get sound from my DEL 510 laptop.

Hi jkepu,
I see that you are not getting any sound from your Dell 510 Laptop, If you lost the sound just a day before try doing System Restore first,
1. Click on start, All Programs or Programs then in the list Look for Accessories, System Tools, then click System Restore, this will help your restore you system to the day your sound was working.
2. If still the sound does not work go to Control Panel, look for device manager or you can click on start on the start search bar type in device manger it should show on the list then click on it to open Device manager, click the arrow on the left side of sound, video and game controllers it will show you a sub category of your audio drivers check to see if there are any of these signs
mvincentc_16.jpg mvincentc_17.jpg mvincentc_18.jpg

If there is an X on the Audio driver it means that it can be disabled.
If there is an Exclamation point it means that the Audio card on your machine is detected but may not work correctly, disabling and enabling the device may fix this or uninstalling and reinstalling the driver may work.
If there is a question mark means that the device is detected but it cannot determine what device it is most likely the driver is incorrect or corrupted and may need re-installation to fix the problem
Note: If you uninstall a driver and re-install again and you get an error that the device cannot be detected then most probably your audio card maybe damaged and is unrepairable, or you may get an error saying that the device driver is already installed on this machine something like that, check to make sure that the driver is uninstalled properly before installing a new driver for your Audio device.

Hope that I was clear enough with my solutions.

Steps for Windows 7To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Programs, click Uninstall a program.
  4. In the tasks pane, click Turn Windows features on or off.
  5. In the list of windows features, clear the check box next to Internet Explorer 8.
  6. You receive a warning message in a pop-up window. Click Yes.
Internet Explorer 8 will now be uninstalled. The system will restart after the installation.

if that fails then there is a manual way to do this using the CMD prompt...
  1. Carefully select and then copy the following command: FORFILES /P %WINDIR%servicingPackages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-8*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"
  2. Click Start, and then type Cmd.exe in the Start Search box.
  3. In the list of programs, right-click Cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator.

    Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  4. Right-click inside the Administrator: Command Prompt window, and then click Paste to paste the command that you copied in step 1.
  5. Press ENTER to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 8 if it is set as not removable. This occurs if you install Internet Explorer 8 before you install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. If this scenario applies to you, then you must uninstall SP3 before you can uninstall Internet Explorer 8.

McAfee Integrated Security Platform Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Not only Uninstalling & Reinstalling the McAfee Program would help, because usually you'd get this Error During the Installation. The Reason for this Error is because of the Windows Update (McAfee is Disigned on the Windows Platform).

Things that Needs to be checked here are:

1. Update Windows:
- Open IE (Internet Explorer).
- Click on the TOOLS or SAFETY (If the IE version is IE v.8).
- Select Windows Update.
- Ensure that All Windows Updates are Installed on the Computer.

2. Installing MSXML 3 & 4:
- Check if you already have MSXMLs installed on your Computer by going to START >> CONTROL PANEL >> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS or PROGRAMS >> PROGRAMS & FEATURES (In Case of Windows Vista/7).
- If you find MSXMLs, Uninstall them & then Restart the Computer.
- Download and Reinstall MSXML version 3 (MSXML3.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Download and install MSXML version 4 (MSXML.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Run McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) from
- Reinstall the McAfee Program.

Thank You!
