Windows 7: Can't Uninstall Hydravision

Can't Uninstall Hydravision

I installed an old version of hydravision by accident that won't open, and now I can't uninstall it. If I select it in add/remove programs and press uninstall, nothing happens. I installed the newest version and that just gives me a blank dialog box with an exclamation mark then closes, which is probably because I have the old version.

How can I remove it??

Try using System Restore to restore to a date before installing this old version of Hydravision to see if it corrects the issue.

If system restore does not work.
First make sure that you have permission. I wil get you information on that
for vista and seven
If you cannot give your self permission, give yourself ownership first

Then type msconfig in search and if Hydavision is a startup program uncheck start up.

In safe mode uninstall.

Hey Maybe you should check & see if the service is running while you are trying to get rid of it . .
