  • Uninstalling iTunes took my DVD/CD drive - seeks advice

    Hello. It is on an Acer Aspire 5520-5912 laptop running Vista SP1. Last week, I uninstalled iTunes because I do not use it and I wanted to reclaim the disk space.

I tried the registry changes on the "UpperFilters" key You can see an overview of the current register here:

  • I get an error code 10. DT High Definition Audio CODEC driver problem. Have uninstalled and re installed, still no progress. Any advice? I have

    I bought a new laptop, Dell Vostro 3550 and found pirated software. I installed Windows 7 Pro (64 bit).

    There is no sound at all. Get a code 10 message, IDT High Definition Audio CODEC has a driver problem. I uninstalled and re installed the driver without result.
    If anyone can help?

    Hello Eugene,

    When you installed Windows 7 Pro, did you do a reformat and clean install, or have you just loaded Win 7? Part of the problem may be a residual of pirated software. I recommend a reformat and clean install if you can do it now.

    In the contrary case, the thing to look at is if there is a driver conflict between what driver is there now compared to what was there. Go to control panel | Device Manager and watch the video, sound, and game controllers section. What drivers are here for audio? And which audio driver your speakers are pointed to? The active audio driver suitable for your speakers.

    If you could answer my questions, I might be able to help you further.

    Kind regards


  • Give advice about uninstalling the database Client Oracle under Windows with multiple Oracle homes

    Hi all.

    Probably a Client of Oracle database uninstall will arrive in a Windows box, where there are several houses of Oracle:

    (1) the Oracle Database 11 g Client is.

    (2) the House of Oracle Oracle database server.

    (3) oracle 6i Oracle Home.

    I have these concerns:

    (1) do I stop Oracle Services NOT related to the Oracle Home being deleted? I guess that's not necessary, but it is recommended?

    (2) the YES program to run must be or is better to use the YES program located at removed Oracle (Oracle Client to Database 11 g in this situation)?

    "(3) I see there are additional post - installation according to section 5.3 steps"manually remove the Oracle database Client components remaining' the Oracle Client Installation Guide for Windows.

    Could someone provide the additional steps or recommendations?

    Sorry but I do not trust the windows plataform much!

    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards, Luis!

    Hello myluism,

    You can use the oracle supplied binary dinstall to uninstall oracle binaries that you can download from this url of Oracle Database 11 g Release 2 for Microsoft Windows (x 64) that looks good in your context.

    In addition, you can also uninstall the binary files by running the dinstall respecitive houses Oracle located in the path: ORACLE_HOME\dinstall.

    Please go through the url: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e47959/deinstall.htm#NTCLI1326

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you and best regards.

  • The update of creative cloud worked for Photoshop.  However, it shows my LR 5.4 'up-to-date' and the CC version will not load.  Advice has been uninstall LR using the program uninstall Adobe, but it does not exist on my iMac with the Mavericks.  I am supp

    Sorry for the long title.  I thought that I was actually asking.  Why can't I update my LR LR CC 5.4?  I have an iMac 27-inch running the Mavericks.  I have a lot of space on my hard drive and have 16 GB of RAM.

    Long titles seem to happen a lot since the last forum updated software isn't just you!

    There is no CC Lightroom. You get the latest version (currently 5.4) with creative cloud, and the CC app so right to say that your LR is up-to-date. Unlike most other Cloud creative applications and Photoshop, Lightroom is not labelled as 'CC' because it is also available separately as a product standalone perpetual license. When 5.5 (or 6.0 - or even a CC version only) is available in the future, the CC app should invite you to update, and then in the meantime, you good to go.


  • Uninstall software update Apple says error in seller contact package package unstaller

    Try to get itunes working to make a backup of my faulty iphone before repair.

    First-itunes does not start says error. I'm trying to fix it, who said success but same error when you try to start it.

    Then uninstall completely worked. Then reinstall that seemed to be over except for a message "an older version of Apple software update already exists" then he went down and install itunes apparently had not been completed.

    Then I try to remove the update from the apple software and executed by an error in the installation program - it says there is an error in the installation and contact the supplier of the installation package. Same error if I run the uninstall command line program.

    Try to repair the Apple Software Update of programs & features Control Panel and then try to update iTunes again.

    For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates.

    The steps described in the second case are a guide to remove everything related to iTunes and then rebuild what is often a good starting point, unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

    Review the other boxes and other support documents list to the bottom of the page, in case one of them applies.

    The more information box has direct links with the current and recent if you have problems to download, must revert to an older version or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with third-party software.

    Backups of your library and device should be affected by these measures but there are links to backup and recovery advice there.


  • How uninstall Firefox when it always says that it is running

    I checked all the troubleshooting suggestions to get Firefox running properly again. Finally decided that I just need to completely remove and download a new copy.

    Problem is when I try to uninstall the program he says "Firefox must be closed for uninstalling, close firefox to continue."

    I have, it does not appear in one of the processes that are currently running. Any advice?

    Upgrate to the latest beta... 34.0.5...
    Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox program files, and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

    Note: You can print these steps or consult them in another browser.

    1. Download the latest version of Firefox from mozilla.org office (or choose the download for your operating system and language on this page) and save the file to install it on your computer.
    2. Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (or open the Firefox menu

      Click the close button


    3. Remove the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
      • Windows:

        • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
        • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
      • Mac: Delete Firefox in the Applications folder.
      • Linux: If you have installed Firefox with the distribution-based package manager, you must use the same way to uninstall: see Install Firefox on Linux. If you have downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
    4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
      1. Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
      2. Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.

    More information on the resettlement of Firefox can be found here.

    WARNING: Do not use an uninstaller to third parties as part of this process. This could permanently delete your Firefox profile data, including but not limited to, extensions, cache, cookies, bookmarks, personal settings and passwords saved. They can be retrieved easily unless they have been backed up on an external device! See back up and restore the information contained in the profiles of Firefox.

    Please report to say if this helped you!

    Thank you.

    A little while back, I have authorized a program to install InboxAce on my computer. The toolbar is now show on Mozilla Firefox, and I think that it is the program that crashed my computer today, although Ace Inbox was not in use when my computer crashed. I have no need of this program and want to uninstall it. However, when I go into the control panel and select "Uninstall a program", my computer does not list this program for me to uninstall. I also tried to remove mywebsearch.com, but this doesn't seem to be anywhere on my computer. In addition, I have some plugins for this program listed either. ACE of the Inbox has a toolbar on the right with an option to uninstall, but this option does not work. Thanks for any help you can offer.

  • I'm using Firefox 23.0.1. What will happen if I uninstall IE-8 completely?

    Please advice for my IE-8 works fine.

    It is not advisable to uninstall IE8, DO NOT.

    By all means allow Firefox as default browser.

    • It won't be easy to do and some components of IE8 can be used by other applications.
    • You can continue to need IE8 for his ability to do some things, that Firefox can't do
      • As Windows operating system updates, Norton updates
    • You already know that you can have several browsers installed. It is always useful to have an alternative browser for testing, comparison and in reserve.
  • I tried all the solutions available to prevent Foxstar become the homepage by default including uninstalling Firefox/delete my profile, but nothing works

    I have nothing to add to the question.

    Thank you very much. I read the references you provided and followed your advice. I decided to remove the entire program of Firefox and other issues. As a result when I did a reinstall asked me for the first time that I wanted to import all saved preferences. This implies that on other occasions when I uninstalled then installed and has not asked this question that the 'normal' uninstall process does not 'clean' preferences etc. I checked it by typing "subject: config" in the URL and search on "browser.startup.homepage" to see what preference has been saved. Install previous it never changed to 'http://ggle.org.uk/FireFox-Tab.php?OVKWID=ff4', he's now my selected preference. I spent a lot of time on it. Thanks for your help.

  • I had to uninstall firefox because it was causing so many problems with my computer. I was using the latest version 18. What is the problem?

    I had nothing else problems since I installed the latest version of Firefox version 18. It crashes my computer no matter what I do. Even if I do not use the browser. I uninstalled three times and the problems just seem to be deteriorating. Finally, I uninstalled and it did not reinstall again. I will not use again until the problems are solved. Also, I don't know is that funmoods or whatever it is that has replaced my google home page. I don't like software to decide what services I use. I've been a user of firefox for more than 15 years. I've never had problems like this before. I spent in Safari. It works without interfering with the other tasks I do on my computer. I don't know what version 18 is but the previous version of firefox that I used was perfectly fine. I had no problem whatsoever with it. It seems as if this version has not been tested enough. Also my daughter is having the same problems with his computer and they all started with the new version. So it isn't just me. At least give us the option to revert to the previous version and we ask if we want to improve when a new spell. However, I never had these problems in the past with any version of firefox that I installed. I like the features of firefox, but cannot afford to keep restarting my computer. It seems that firefox is hindering and then hangs up the computer and I can't do anything else even if I do not use it. It seems to stay in the background and just hang up. Please fix this.

    The problem is unlikely to have been with Firefox itself. It is much more likely to have been with some software or malware you have inadvertently installed

    Installs official Firefox is not bundled with other software. Firefox is customizable and has many extensions of the software you can choose to install but don't have to do anything.

    Funmoods is also a malware or at least software which is often hated to see these messages

    If you want to reinstall firefox official site:

    Then start playback on the malware removal and the toolbar
