    Question Can't Uninstall VMWare Lite

    I have recently had a problem with my VMWare. When I boot up, it tries to install, then asks for a resource (vmware.msi) from (by default) C:\DOCUME~1\Admin\LOCALS~1\Temp\7ZipSfx.000\ . I cancel, and it tries again four or more times. When I try to remove it through control panel's add/remove programs, it sends a pop-up that says that it could not read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\VMWare.msi . If I click change in the add/remove programs, and go through the uninstall with that wizard, and the same message appears. It seems that this is interfering with some other programs, because when i open certain programs the installers pop up and then brings up the program with defects (the programs are legit and good; I used the exact same installer and folowed the exact same steps on another computer).

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Download this program Windows Install Cleanup utility , it's a very powerful uninstall utility, so make sure you're selecting the right program to delete. If it doesn't delete in Normal mode, try it in Safe Mode.

    Keep us posted.
