Windows 7: UimBus and Uim_IM Drivers

16 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
UimBus and Uim_IM Drivers

I have in my event viewer the following drivers failed to start UimBus and Uim_IM and from what I've read they belonged to Paragon. I had it installed once and removed it. Is this left overs and if so how do I remove them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using Windows 7Pro 64 bit.

Use the trial version of Revo Uninstaller, use the 'Forced Uninstall" feature

in case anybody else experiences this problem:

i've just found out that i'm getting these uimbus/uim_im (universal image mounter) errors too.

so i downloaded revo unistaller, but of course there aren't any paragon entries there, as i uninstalled it a while back while testing.

i didn't feel like installing paragon again, then force uninstalling it, so i did some snooping around and found three files in windows/system32/drivers:

Name:  uim.PNG
Views: 2769
Size:  3.8 KB

then i cranked up regedit, searched for uim, found some entries in HKLM\system\controlset\services (and HKLM\system\controlset001\services) and deleted them.

crossed my fingers, rebooted, and problem solved
