URSoft Your Uninstaller is a $4o program that may or may not work and if you want it for free you have to sign up for a partners monthly service!  But we removed both versions with Revo Uninstaller, then reinstalled Turbotax 2010 and still had the same issue.

In Trial  there is no restrictions. You do not have to purchase the software.  I would request you to follow my steps. No need to purchase the software. Just follow my steps.

We followed your instructions to the letter and still receive the same message after reinstalling TurboTax 2010 and trying the run the program.  We decided we would be able to resolve the problem quicker by doing a fresh install of windows.  It solved the problem indirectly but it was not the solution we were looking for.

Solved the problem by wiping the system clean and starting over, but did not directly solve the problem.
