You can reinstall TuneUp & use Revo, or you can Edit the Context menu. Because you still have the entry on the Recycle Bin, It is possible that other entries remain, due to an incomplete uninstall, so reinstall is your best option.

I use Advanced Mode. Screenshots of how to use.

If you have partially uninstalled your program, you see a message from Revo, that it can't find the uninstaller, hit Cancel & let Revo continue on to search for the remnants.

It didn't work... I reinstalled it, then Revo Uninstalled it, and it's still there. I also tried using the context menu program you sent to me, and that didn't work either. :( What else can I do?

I found it in RegEdit, but what do I do now? I see it says "shell", inside that is a folder "empty", then inside that is a folder "command". What do I do next?

From Regedit, Export the entry to your Desktop for now.

According to the link, right click on this & Delete.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\shell

Or,

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell

It didn't work. It said error removing registry and nothing happened. Any other ideas?

Hi, Sorry for interrupting. But I suggest you download Reg Seeker form this link and type in TuneUp and let it search your registry.

Create a system restore point first and read each item before you check it for deletion.

Did you reboot?

John: No, hold on. I am now.

Mr.Good: Hold on let me try John's idea brb.


EDIT:
John, it didn't work even after a reboot. I also tried deleting it by running regedit as a admin, but it still doesn't work.

I found lots of items, and I deleted the ones which are from the TuneUp program (some where from my Norton AV which has a TuneUp button). Restarting now, wish me luck!

I give up. I'm NEVER in my LIFE going to install another TuneUp program. EVER. What a piece of **** that left it's shi*ty context menu listing behind and fuc*ing registry entries.

Never mind guys, I fixed it myself. Guess what I did? I opened Regedit then searched for TuneUp and deleted it's folder and subkeys that said TuneUp Undelete. Then a restart then gone :D!

All the cleaners mentioned are very good, if you use Regseeker again, my personal use, is to delete only the Green entries.
1: Click on > Clean the registry.
2: Click on OK.
3: When searching is finished, click on > Select & choose > Select all Green items.
4: Right click on any Green item & click on > Delete selected items.

Another cleaner I usually use last, may have to run 4,5 or 6 times, because it has the ability to really delve into the registry after a scan & find entries that may cause problems / conflicts.

Guys, once you get in to this,

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\shell

click on the drop down, look for 'Tuneup Undelete', then delete the key and that's it.

it should update automatically.

Forget that. Reinstall. Uncheck option for TU in recycle bin in settings. Uninstall. Applies to some other nuisanceware as well...
