Windows 7: Does this kind of 'install monitor' or un-installer even exist?

12 Aug 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Is there uninstaller that will find programs others didn't?

System: Acer 5733Z notebook. OS: Windows 7. Problem: Program I paid for installed updater/phone home dialer I don't WANT. Paid Program: Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking 12. Unwanted Program: FLEXnet Control Software Management Agent (or some such name, you can find exact name with Google search like I did) by Acresso(?). Occurence: If you buy ANY Nuance product, you're gonna have this junk installed.

Previous Efforts to cure the problem : 1. Revo Uninstaller. 2. Geek Uninstaller. 3. Built-in Windows 7 Uninstaller.

Results of Previous Efforts: None of the above found it.

Question: Is there an uninstaller that will find programs Revo Uninstaller, Geek Uninstaller, or Windows 7 software uninstaller won't find? Thank you

This is a good little program that will find them.
Once found you can right tick and delete or go to regedit from the program and remove them. Be careful what you remove. Once you remove something using this program it gone for good.

Monitor Installs

Well I can't recommend it as I've sometimes had problems with it but if you wish to monitor installs so that software can be fully removed you could try:

Comodo Programs Manager

I guess you could install it for test purposes then reinstall those troublesome programs. CPM will, in theory, monitor the installs and then allow you to fully remove the software.

Also a lot of the time if you find that software doesn't get fully removed it's often down to a running service being installed and the solution is usually to stop the service then delete it before running the uninstaller.
