    By the way, for any future viewers of this thread:
    This tool helped me reinstall Intel RST when it became totally corrupted after a repair install, and would not work, reinstall or uninstall, and I had to do a forced uninstall, and delete the folders, registry entries, and whatever else I could find. Problem is I didn't know about MSI(Microsoft® Windows® Installer), and even If I did, I wouldn't have known what to do.

    This is a great tool to have in your portable apps folder/toolbox, just use it with care.

    Nice you added this to the tutorials Shawn

    Fellow geeks, just remember, this tool is for cleaning up the MSI.

    Software installed using the Microsoft® Windows® Installer (MSI) technology writes certain files and registry settings. If any of those files or settings are missing or corrupted, you may be unable to remove, update, or even reinstall the program. The solution in such cases is to remove all of the Windows Installer information so that the program can be cleanly reinstalled. To do that, Microsoft offers the free Windows Installer CleanUp utility.
    The Windows Installer CleanUp utility deletes all files and registry settings associated with a program's Windows Installer configuration. It's important to note that the tool does not remove the program's actual installation files or registry settings. Nor does the tool replace or supersede the Add/Remove Programs command.
    Rather, you would resort to this utility if you can't uninstall or update an application through Add/Remove Programs or other methods. By deleting the Windows Installer information, you should be able to reinstall the application. You can then leave the program installed as is, update it, or even remove it.
