reinstall VWD 2008 epxress

How do uninstall VWD 2008 express registry entries because I cant reinstall VWD.

I am told that uninstall doesnt remove these because it is evaluation software (even though it is freeware). When I reinstall I still get same problems .

MY VWD is corrupt and I cant run applications so the only thing I can do is reinstall

OK... What you need is a powerful uninstaller to clean up the registry. Try google it and find one suitable for your own. http://www.revouninstaller.com/

if not then re format the HD is far cheaper.

I am not sure. I am using 360safe which is a Chinese version only software to manage my application programs.
Have you ever tried the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
Just take some on google and find a good software to help yourself.
