Ben_Locke asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I was trying to install a program on my PC, when it crashed towards the end of the installation.

The folder structure has been created, as well as folders in it, how ever I cannot run it has it says it has been installed. I can't uninstal it from add/remove programs because it does appear in the list.

Have tried reinstalling it but it claims that it is already installed, have tried deleting the files but I get access denied.

Is there a manual way to uninstall it it?

I am running Windows 7 32 bit
