Uninstallation failed: Not able to uninstall F-secure?
Posted by tripathiabhishek on July 26, 2010
For quite many days, my Windows was running too slow, and when I checked the CPU usage I found that F-secure files were taking a lot of CPU power. I wanted to un-install current version of F-secure and re-install it from the scratch. But I was not able to do, each time I tried to un-install F-secure, I got a message like:
Uninstallation Failed: Not able to read the uninstallation registry………… Restart your system and try again.
After a long, tiring and unsuccessful Google search, I finally decided to contact F-secure. They fortunately have a nice live chat system, where you can chat with a technical expert. Chat with an expert.
This is what I was recommended to uninstall F-secure from my system successfully.
- Download uninstallation tool from ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/support/tools/uitool/UninstallationTool.exe
- Run it by double-clicking.
- It will automatically re-start the computer after a while.
- Once re-started, clean the junk file, temporary files and Internet temporary files.
In my case, the automatic re-start did not work. I had to start the system in previous setting mode. But after that it was successful.
Warning: It’s better to get help from F-secure directly than blindly following my description. Your problem might be different altogether.
