    Cannot uninstall a program in Win10


    So I uninstalled a program, and a day later I did a system restore. The program is back, but I can't uninstall it again. When I try to uninstall it from the add/remove programs list nothing happens, same with using ccleaner.

    Found this, but it doesn't work for Win10:

    Hello possum2009,

    What program is it?

    You might see if you may be able to use OPTION SEVEN in the tutorial below to uninstall it.

    If not, then you might see if you may be able to uninstall it after reinstalling the program.

    Would revo uninstaller work? I've never heard of it before doing a search for uninstaller programs. Is it safe?

    Revo Uninstaller would be a good option to see if it may.

    Revo Uninstaller did it. But I'm slightly worried. How safe is Revo Uninstaller?

    Revo uninstall is an excellent program.
    Once I needed Revo to uninstall google Chrome which for some reason could not be uninstall via Programs and Features.
    I used Revo and not only it uninstalled Chrome instantly, it also ask me if I wanted to remove what were left in the registry.
    I said yes, and it showed me the entries I needed to delete. Not only that, it showed them in BOLD prints so that I would pick the right ones to delete.
    I did that without any trouble.
    I recommend it anytime.

    *** adding............... Revo has been in existence since the early days of Windows Vista. It is well known among the Windows users.
