Thank you for the information, but if i read it correctly i first should stop all the blackberry services and after that uninstalle the exchange manager or the mapi cdo. problem is that when i would try to uninstall the mapi cdo i get the error from windows installer  :The configuration data for this product is corrupt . Contact your support personnel.

In the link you sended they asume that you uninstall the mapi cdo and after that you go on with the procedure of renaming / regedit and reinstall..

please advice what to do!

check user permission of  service in regedit , if it correct for configuration for administrator or user, you ll try manually delete or rename reg keys of service.

are you tried any 3rd party uninstall manager before?

I tried ti delete it with  ccleaner, but did not work also. Where do i have to look on the permissions in regedit,? Or what key should i delete in the reg. i'm not such into the register, the exchange is also running on there so the last thing i like is to crash the system.  

Any other ideas/programs how to uninstall and afterward install it again?

First you must find class number of service or program for example;


Right click it ans open Permission.

ccleaner is not usefull (i think so) search in google for 3rd party uninstall manager, i did use any of it.

if you want to completely remove the program from system, delete reg key in regedit of all about it.
