I installed Windows Cleanup Utility on Windows 7 Professional 64bit, the installer says it installed without any problems, but it's not in my programs list and I can't find it under Program Files either.

Am I being completely dumb here or what?

Thank you!

I have downloaded already, ran through the setup and it says it's finished successfully, but I can't find the actual program.

once downloaded, right click and select "run as administrator" ; that will install the app / utility on your w7 machine

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I believe the Windows Installer Cleanup utility is a 32-bit program. So on your 64-bit pc, it should be in your Program Files (x86) directory. You can also do a search in the Windows Explorer window for msicuu2.exe

Nope, not there, I searched for msicuu2.exe and msicuu.exe.

I'm completely baffled on this one?

I am so stupid, my apologies for my stupidity.

Once I logged in as administrator and ran the install, it's now in the programs list.

again, my apologies, I will split point.

Thank you very much!

I see from the Knowledge Base article that the utility has been updated to work on both 32-bit and 64-bit pcs, and the name is msicuu.exe   If it installed correctly, then you should be able to uninstall it by using the Add/Remove programs tool in Control Panel, according to the text file Readme.txt accompanying the program.  Of course, this Control Panel item was for Windows 9x through Windows XP.  In Vista and Windows 7, the name of that Control Panel item is now called Programs and Features.
