    How to manually remove leftover files with Admin command prompt...


    I'm getting this errors on the admin event viewer.
    The all seem to be from left over junk from a VMWare virtual machine I uninstalled.
    Is there a way to remove them using admin command prompt
    ...Thanks... Click image for larger version.

    HI...HippsieGypsie, Brink... I cleared the event viewer this morning...

    Using the command you all mentioned... It cleared all the event viewer logs. But on reboot, the errors I attached keep recurring...
    So there has to be junk in the registry causing the errors...Thanks Guys...

    I found this a minute ago...
    http://www.desnatec.net/manually-uni...e-workstation/
    Do you all think this should do the trick...
    The workstation I uninstalled was 12.0

    Workstation 8.x/9.x/10.x/11.x/12.x
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Features\A57F49D06AE015943BFA1B54AFE9506C
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\A57F49D06AE015943BFA1B54AFE9506C
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\UpgradeCodes\3F935F414A4C79542AD9C8D157A3CC39
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0D94F75A-0EA6-4951-B3AF-B145FA9E05C6}
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\Installer\VMware Workstation
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Applications\vmware.exe
    I checked the register and most of this is in it...
    And there are some other files I saw that refer to Vmware... Thanks Guys...
    I just did not want to jump in there and start to delete, without getting some advice...

    I would recommend to create a restore point first to be safe.
