Unistallation from add remove program fails.
Posted on 2008-11-12
I need to uninstall two programs Symantec Antivirus, and Microsoft office 2007.
The office 2007 package is corrupt basically my friend made a mass and for some reason from my server he deleted the files from Windows explorer manually. The problem is the entrance to add remove program about the Microsoft office 2007 is still there and it cannot be uninstalled anymore. How can I force remove this entrance from add remove program? I tried HighJackThis but it doesn't work.
Other issue is that Symantec Antivirus cannot also be removed from all my clients. Symantec Antivirus was originally installed from one server and the client was installed remotely with what they call push installation from the parent server. Now to remove the client from each client machine a password is needed but for some reason password doesn't work anymore and the anti virus cannot also be removed from add remove program.
I don't know how to solve this? I need to basically remove both program Office 2007 that is just a dead entrance on add remove program, and uninstall also Symantec from all client machine.
I also used some registry cleaner program but they don't work.
