I had a program which went rouge on me on Windows 7, and I could not remove it! Luckily, I found out that Microsoft has a program known as Fixit which could repair my problem. Before I post a link to Microsoft’s legitimate online location of Fixit so you would be able to download, let me describe my problem in detail so you would know if you might need Fixit or not. Of course, I must remind you not to download fake Fixit or any Fixit program which isn’t belonging to Microsoft unless you know the purpose of such program. Why? Some programs might mask themselves as a legitimate program to help solve your problems, but in fact those programs might be malware and infect your computer with malicious directives.
Anyhow, my problem was I had removed a program manually, but for some strange reasons I could not remove this program from Add or Remove Programs list (i.e., from Control Panel >> Programs >> Uninstall a program). I went into Registry and removed all the entries that belonged to this specific program, and it refused to remove itself from Add or Remove Programs list. I downloaded CCleaner and used it to fix Windows Registry, but the program would relentlessly refuse to remove itself from Add or Remove Programs list. Well, as you already know what I had told you earlier, Fixit did it! Yep, with Fixit, I was able to remove this specific program from my Add or Remove Programs list. The link to Fixit is:
