Cannot remove RegClean Pro form Windows Vista
when I try to uninstall RegClean Pro in Programs and Features, I get the message "Messages file "C:\Program Files\ReGClean Pro\ unins000.msg' is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program." I have tried removing the dll files from the registry using the command line, but have gottene rror messages form this as well.

Try the free Revo Uninstaller.


I wonder if RegClean Pro was stupid enough to delete its own files?!?

You should definitely avoid Registry Cleaners, Boosters, Optimizers, TuneUp Utilities... This type of software will do a lot more harm than good. Most members coming here with WEIRD symptoms had their computer messed up by malware and/or registry cleaners. There have been reports from members saying registry cleaners had fixed a specific problem with their computer. Although it might be possible in some cases, legitimate files still in use will be deleted in the process, crippling some programs and Windows applications beyond repair.

Keep in mind that they will always find "errors" to fix, even on a fresh Windows install! In itself, this should be enough to convince non-believers...

In addition to the above - if the un-install file is missing, [unins000.msg] you may need to re-install and then un-install using their un-install file.
Check first if it shows up in Revo Uninstaller.
