Windows 7: Unable to remove program - device is not ready

Unable to remove program - device is not ready

Hi all.

I have an external hard drive permanantly plugged in which I install my games to and run from there.

Well, it crashed and I got it running again but now it won't run Sims 3. So I want to uninstall it and change over to my new hard drive.

When i try to uninstall it I get the message shown in the picture. It says the files are installed to drive F, but my hard drive is drive G. There is no F.

So. My question is - how can I remove any traces of Sims 3 from my computer? I don't care if there is anything left on the external hard drive because I'm getting rid of it. I just don't want anything left over on my computer.

Hello Virgobabe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using either option in the tutorial below to change the drive letter from G: to F: may allow it to work properly afterwards.
