Windows 7: Removing Windows Journal

Removing Windows Journal

I scanned our network and Windows Journal needs some updates... We don't use it so I want to remove it.

I go into Control Panel, Add/remove programs and it doesn't show up. When I click "Turn Windows Features on or off" I get an empty window. Can't find any way to remove Windows Journal other than delete the folder but that may impact the registry.

Anyone else seen this?

How long do you wait? If your drive is fragmented it may take a bit to gather the list.

That may be an ok option. You can use CCleaner to remove "Registry Issues" for any stuff it leaves in the Registry. As a precaution I would make a Restore Point first and also let CCleaner make a backup file of the Registry when it prompts. I've only had a problem with one version of CCleaner using the Registry cleaner. But
I always make the backup file because of that. Using a Restore Point effects other things making the CCleaner backup file a better choice in this case.
