PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Win XP Home
Problem Application Name & Version: ThumbsPlus 6
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: programme not responding



Hi, I have tried to uninstall ThumbsPlus 6 from the Add/Remove section and with its own uninstall and either way it freezes up. I get the 'program not responding' I would like to uninstall it completely not just delete files and folders. Is there any other way to do this?
Thanks

Hello Pili Potter

Well if the program won't unistall from the Add/Remove Programs you are likely to have to go searching for the files and folders.

There should be a folder in C:\Windows\Program Files
It would be safe to delete it from there.
Also you can go to Start>Search>for FIles & Folders. On the left side click All Files & Folders. Type in ThumbsPlus 6 and direct it to search the C:

You may also need to edit the resgitry.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
When the Registry Editor is open click Edit>Find, type in the name and click ok

Hope this helped

Try this little Application AddRemovePro

Add-Remove Pro - Uninstalls and Removes entries from the Add-Remove Programs list of Windows.

This free tool shows you what is in the Add-Remove Programs list, which entries are valid, and allows you to uninstall or remove any entry.
