Windows 10: Uninstall crippled program

    Uninstall crippled program


    Hello,
    Once I have installed "Paintshop pro 6.02" (I know, it's an old version). In time some features stopped working, the main program still works. Now I got a newer (retail) version, I do not want to install it over the crippled one. I searched the registry and found few entries without any values. Shell I delete these entries befor installing the newer version ?
    How about making a test while "Timefreeze" is 'on' ?
    Answers will be appreciated
    Thanks

    You can safely uninstall v6.02 if you have the original installation from Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features. Then install the new version. You might be able to keep both versions if you want to try installing v6.03 again - but why would you need that? The installer should give a warning if you try installing an older version if it's not possible to use both versions.

    You can try some uninstaller to do a forced uninstall, like with Wise Program Uninstaller or GeekUninstaller.
