    Hi Experts

    I had installed TheGreenBow IPSec VPN Client on my laptop, then I uninstalled by using a utility called Revo Uninstaller.

    Then I used a utility from TheGeenBow website to clean completely leftover as below
    http://www.thegreenbow.com/vpn_faq.html
    But whenever I installed a fresh copy a message pops up :

    you have a previous version ,,,,etc

    Is there any other utility helps me to clean a leftover registry for an uninstalled program ??

    Thanks

    Revo will remove all traces of any programme in the registry, perhaps you didn't delete all the associated files found, try again to see if the prog is still listed, if so delete everything bolded and all the further files it finds

    Try running their cleaning tool in Safe Mode. Registration and data for some programs may be very well-hidden inside the registry. Searching for it is futile. If you still have problems, contact their support.

    The removal utility removes everything except a flag that tells the installer that the 30 day free trial has expired. Solution is to buy a copy.

    The removal utility you said you got from the greenbow.com website. My point was that it leaves something behind so people can't continue using 30 day trial software forever.

    Frank's solution is the correct one, we won't assist in bypassing the trial restrictions.
