I have Juniper-Netscreen Secure VPN Client installed on my remote Windows XP machine and am unable to uninstall it using Add/Remove programs.  There is no error message, only the removal process appearing to complete. However, the program is not removed.

I called Juniper and the tech was not able to help me. The product is no longer supported.

This VPN program must be removed so that I can install another VPN Client.

Once upon a time Juniper had a utility that would cleanly uninstall the application when there was such an occurrence.

Use Revo Pro;

http://www.revouninstaller.com/

This will remove the program for you - the pro version lets you use it free for 30 days, uninstall it when you have finished

foxpc123: Before I download and install the Revo Uninstaller is there an option specifically for Juniper-Netscreen Secure VPN Client and/or have you known it to be successful uninstalling this application?

The Revo program basically is a program designed for these issues, where the built in uninstaller will not uninstall a program.

Use the revo program to uninstall which it will do using the built uninstaller first and then it will identify any registry entries associated with that program and you can delete them, and then files and folders.

We have used it very successfully with a large number of applications and programs and it has always removed them fine without any issues.

If you're nervous of this - you could always try this option from Juniper - which explains how to remove it manually.

The Revo option will remove it as well.

foxpc123: The Revouninstaller appears to be a fantastic program;  I did not realize I had that many applications on my ten year old XP Computer, but then after ten years... However it did not work for the Juniper Secure VPN Client. The Network adapters are affected and there are way too many Registry entries. Although it was a hassle the manual removal appears to have worked. So I will be giving your second suggestion as the Solution. Thank you for your help.
