|MG| Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 7.2 Download

it gave me a odd error like something is wrong with it but it ran as administrator and it installed correctly for me. so I was your guinea pig lol.
Many thanks. :-) However, when I run the program it doesn't find the "ghost" entries.

Go to C:/

Go to Program files it should be listed there just delete it

Your welcome

Ps. i know you cant find it but it can be listed in a different "program files" depending on what os your on and if its 32 or 64 bit.

Or, go to the list of programs with the shortcuts, right click, properties and see where its pointed too, delete the directory?

Hello 7farmer,

I'm not sure what method you used to try and remove the program's uninstall entry, but maybe this may be able to help you to do so.
