    Microsoft's gem piece of software

    While trying to sort out another school server and update all the computer the server had a problem with uninstalling wsus and other issues. Now I hate going through the reg deleting keys to remove software then I came across this Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and it works like a dream. used it loads of times now it works on all ms products including 64 bit. Well done Microsoft you got something right.

    Still, it would be better if they wrote software that didn't bugger the registry in the fist place

    They're only fixing their own mistakes :P
    If this could automagically fix your registry after any program has been uninstalled, then I'd get down on my knees!

    This also worked for me when I couldn't uninstall Acrobat Reader 7 (I'm sure I posted something about it, but perhaps not). I ran the program, ticked the box next to Acrobat and that was it, gone.
