Description
Can't uninstall an application using Windows XP?
The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility may be able to help you clean your Windows.

If for some reason you are not able to remove or uninstall an application in Windows XP using either the Uninstall option or the Add/Remove Programs tool? Try using the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. As long as you installed the application using the Windows Installer, this utility will remove all Installer associated files and registry entries.

This tool can also be useful if you have installation problems that may be caused by invalid registry or Windows Installer entries.

Note!! This tool does not remove the application. It only removes the Installer Files, Registry Settings and the entry from Add/Remove Programs.

To completely remove a Program you will need to locate the Program Folder and delete it manually.
