Specs: Windows 7 starter
I want to remove all Nikon software from my computer .Managed to get rid of two programs but one remains that will not uninstall. Nikon movie editor v 2.2.1. and there's a bunch of other Nikon crap that shows up during my security scans and it takes a long time for the scans to get through them. How do I flush this toilet?

Download and install the FREE version of this program. It works pretty well.

The answer is in the post above yours - i.e. #2 above #3

Grasshopper has suggested (given a link to) revounistaller.

Grasshopper,
Had a look at the web site, The down load is free but there's a fee after 30 days. Is there an obligation to buy after the 30 days?

haldon,

click the link I posted and look at the lefthand column where it says "FREEWARE". Scroll down to the bottom of the page and under that free column press the download button. I think you're looking at the paid version. That may be free for 30 days, but the free version is free, period.

Here's another link to the free version.

You might also try this software by Nikon. It supposedly cleans out all the crap left over after an uninstall.

Grasshopper, It took me three attempts to successfully download. Don't know why. Successfully deleted Nikon and who knows what else. I ticked a bunch of boxes without knowing what they where, they where highlighted so goodbye. Some screens came up trying to sell me product to save my computer from certain and immediate death, I ignored them. I remembered them from when I first got my computer and was advised by more knowledgeable people not to go there. So I'll go on from here and see
if there is any improvement in my computers performance or I've deleted something I actually needed. I'm hoping the software scanned and removed anything else bad. I had a look through my programs listing and they all looked familiar, for what ever that's worth. There was one I hadn't seen before Termsco or something to that effect so I deleted that. The main thing is Nikon appears to be gone!!! Hallelujah!! I'll see when I run my scans. Thanks very much for your help and especially for your patience with my lack of computer skills. Regards Haldon

Invariably pop ups and such that offer to sell you software to "rescue, save, fix, or whatever your computer are not worth considering; nor wise to.

Equally those that offer to scan your system and then "discover" a humungous number of problems - which 'they" can magically fix - for a fee...; avoid those too.

There are excellent freebies about; many recommended regularly here which will clean out junk, pests, malware, viruses etc. - and as I say free.

You might be wise to run one or two of the basic utilities used here as a starter...

malwarebytes:

http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...

(Get the free version; and don't bother with any download manager if offered...)

adwcleaner

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

JRT installs itself to the desktop, from where you run it. It will open a small dos window; follow the instructions therein. JRT will reboot the system as part of the process.

When you install the above - do NOT use automatic option; use CUSTOM/MANUAL option. Carefully uncheck any prechecked boxes (so helpfully prechecked...) as you will then avoid all manner of unwanted stuff, and changes to your preferences etc...

Retain any logs generated; they may be useful later if you wish to take things a little further in terms of cleaning up the system, and making things more secure..

I'm still learning the revo thing. I will run the suggested programs you provided as well.
I haven't been on my computer the last few days. Hope to get caught up in the next few. regards haldon

Well, Haldon, we all started to learn somewhere. Over the years, I made quite a few computers into paperweights before I learned what not to do. trvir supplies some useful programs to get rid of the popups etc. Good Luck to you.

grasshopper and others, the removal was not successful. Further there is more crap on my computer than there was before. I downloaded all the above suggested so I don't know where the crap actually came from. Ignore the successful message posted by the site, it was premature and incorrect. I'm done with internet "help" see ya later.

Sorry we couldn't help, but with the advice you were given, you obviously can't follow directions and don't know what you're doing. The Geek squad will gladly relieve you of your money. Give them a try. Good luck to you.

Run this one as it clears out a lot of "stuff" that hides within windows and can't be easily deleted/defeated by utilities running within windows.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk - download the free ISO; burn to a dvd; boot with the dvd. It will load itself (a Linux bases OS) into RAM only. Then will go online to update itself; after-which it will scan the entire system fully to deal with anything it finds.

After that reboot and go to:

http://www.tweaking.com/content/pag...

Download and run the utility - ideally in safe-mode, but normal" is OK too.

It will do a lot and clear out a few pests; also resolve anything amiss it finds as a result of whatever...

It's free, but they appreciate wee donation; it is safe and reliable to use.
There are other cleaner utils too that may be required; but let's see what the above do first?

Retain any logs generated...
