Remove installation files / information from incomplete install on XP Pro
Posted on 2008-06-19
We are unable to install any new applications on one XP Pro computer under normal bootup. Booting in safe mode allows us to install applications.
We have disabled all possible programs at Startup.
During an attempted installation the installation starts then freezes or closes as if complete. Shutting down after the unsuccessful install reports errors from a previous installation. It appears some installation file(s) from that application are still in limbo - waiting to be installed.
Where do I check for incomplete program installation files and how do I clear out an incomplete installation?
