General Support / uninstall requiring reboot
« Last post by Montgomery Minds on April 17, 2013, 09:20:10 pm »
I like ZSoft Uninstaller better than Revo Uninstaller because i get to see and edit the strings before the search begins.  I like the "Only return Whole-Word-Style matches" checkbox.  Then i know what i'm getting when i uncheck that.

So, I had a question so I asked ZSoft Guru in email:
I am set to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection.  It's a beast, from what i read.  I would like to use zsoft uninstaller to help.  But undoubtedly, SEP will require a reboot before it finishes uninstallation.  How will zsoft uninstaller handle this reboot?

In the same vein, it would be nice if zsoft uninstaller could:

1. save the list of strings it has decided to search for.

2. at an arbitrary time, read in a list of strings, or have the user type a list of strings, and do the same search it does after an uninstall.

I note that if it had those 2 features, even if zsoft uninstaller itself did not handle the reboot in the uninstaller for the program i am uninstalling, i could do it myself manually, by saving the list before the reboot, rebooting, then reading in the list after the reboot, and letting zsoft uninstaller search.

Thanks for your time!

And ZSoft Guru hath replied thusly:
I presume you're talking about the Post Uninstall scanning?
If that's the case, the list of search-items that is automatically filled out is already saved.
Go to "Functions -> Post uninstall manager" for a list of all the programs you have uninstalled, navigate to the program you want, double-click it, and the post-uninstall window will pop up.

I hope this helps :)

That DOES help.  A lot!

And then i thot, well i should have posted that in the forum so that everybody can benefit.

So i am posting this follow-up question here:

When does ZSoft Uninstaller capture the strings?  Before or after the built-in uninstaller runs?  Because the built-in uninstaller will ask to reboot.  So if the answer is "after" the reboot will have ended ZSoft Uninstaller's execution.
I'm not the author but i think i can help out here (altho this is an old topic).

When you Analyze a program installation there is a "Before Installation" button and an "After Installation" button.  The only changes that get reverted are the changes made between the presses of those two buttons.  Nothing between the clicking of "After Installation" and the current time will get reverted.

Note that it just might happen that some Task Scheduler program may run or some running Service may happen to take action between pressing those two buttons, and if that action changed files or registry, those would be reverted too.

Bugs / Interesting Access Violation
« Last post by EpicATrain on January 30, 2013, 11:44:02 pm »
I'm sorry I don't have the details of the access violation because I was too busy trying to close the program before it over took my computer.

Temp File Finder - Start - Adjust by Size Column - Close
Analyze - Cancel
Then Try to hover over the tool bar and get an access violation.

I am unable to reproduce at the moment.
1.If I analyze a program  X in order to delete it completely whenever I decide to do so, is not the program going to delete also all other programs that were installed without analyzing between the time of the analyzation and deletion of program  X and/or any changes made to registry between the two steps, and therefore erasing all their keys from the registry?

2.Can you explain about the badware tool please? did not find any explanation to that function in the help file.

I do a Google search and find people wanting to restore their registry to the original state. People have suggested to use Windows Backup and Restore but it fails big time because it does not delete newly added registry. It only restores registry entries that was modified. If only people knew about this software! It's one of its kind, I have not come across any other software that delete registry entries and restore the registry entirely to a previous time. So even if my registry becomes corrupted, the software would re-add what was lost.
Now every time I re-install my Windows XP, I will be sure to analyze my registry so I can restore it in the future.

If you just want to backup your registry, add Drive C to ignore list. I added Desktop and My Documents.

Hello. I do an Analyze in installation, then I can back up the logs the program creates or make a copy of the entire program itself and rename it to "Analyzed installation on date ______"
