    I have two seemingly leftovers from previous programs that stop new installation of say Tuneup which crashed I removed it with Revo using advanced, and Microsoft essentials which crashed also on an update I used microsoft help and the calcs method for permission etc. I have used just about all possible available solutions that I found but non have worked..it seems there is something left over in windows installer perhaps (nothing shows for these two programs, or registry that indicates leftovers..How can I get rid of these. The programs now removed are cleaned from my system and when I search using common words for these program in registry for say tuneup, or tunup utilities I get nothing reported and still the 'removal failed' message. Anyone help please?

    I guess if you used all that software and did not get rid of it then you should use the windows repair cd and from the command prompt delete the files manually .

    or from a linux live cd as root .

    or reinstall windows (kidding)

    or .. oh well i got out of options ...
