Freeridegames programs WONT uninstall

September 22, 2010 at 23:49:05
Specs: Windows Vista, unknown
My son downloaded a game. Now half my programs wont run. Tried to uninstall and it gives me "cannot find INSTALL.LOG.file" (Thats what I get clicking most of my desktop icons.) Apparently it has changed (deleted) the shortcuts to everything, AND it took my Adobe flash and reader. I havent had any luck reinstalling those either. How can I fix this issue. (without the Adobe's, I am limited)

First, what is the name of the program that you are trying to uninstall?

Second, you may have a virus from what you are explaining, i had same problem with icons changing name and so on, and i had a rootkit causing my problems. lets take it one step at a time though,

I am here for a reason.

Well i didnt think of what X86 said but that is the easy way to do it, it depends on how long it has been since the game was downloaded, you might lose stuff you need or want. if you use system restore,but that the easy way.

Thank You X86. I dont know what was different this time (this is the 3rd time i tried it), but it restored most of what was lost. Enough to where my PC runs like it did. I'll try more sites to make sure. anyway thanks again.

u can go to revo unistaller.com it will remove any games you can not remove under normal circumstances, i would still be cautious as you might still have a virus.
