    I have downloaded PC Suite 6.5, but 6.41.6 won't uninstall. Just endlessly
    says it has and reboots.

    I downloaded Nokia System Registry Clean 2.1 which does nothing, merely
    reporting no registry entire to be deleted.

    Can any one help. Or, can anyone provide an email for Nokia support, as they
    hide email support addresses on their website very effectively.

    This is very frustrating, as I like PC Suite, and it works well for me. Why
    Nokia are incapable of writing software that can update previous versions
    defeats me. Other vendors seem to manage it. Even Microsoft.

    BobT in frustration.

    Have you tried to start PC Suite 6.41 installation using it's original
    installation package? Or have you tried to repair installation by
    selecting "Repair"?

    I had that problem with an older version, i just renamed the nokia folder in
    Program Files and it worked ok after that.

    Re: PC Suite won't uninstall - Help!


    I had a similar adventure with 5.4 being on the machine and trying to put
    6.4.1 in it's place. No joy and Nokia's registry cleaner didn't help AT
    ALL.

    What worked was firing up regedit and searching for 'nokia' and manually
    deleting every last one of the damned things. Not for the inexperienced as
    you can really screw things up playing around in the registry.

    What *might* have worked would have been to dig up the original PC suite
    installer (for the right version) and use that to Remove the app. I was
    travelling and couldn't find the old version online.

    What SHOULD have worked was the registry cleaner from Nokia. It's bad
    enough their crappy installer isn't smart enough but to have the cleaner
    fail is just inexcusable.

    But hey, PC suite's so eff'ing HORRIBLE that it's not like I'd expected any
    better...

    had same problem.
    was caused by trying to upgrade from 6.41 to 6.5.
    seems to get confused and leaves 6.41 hanging around.
    What works is to re-install 6.41 again and then uninstall it.

    Best thing to do with hindsight is to uninstall old one before trying to
    load the new one.

    Thanks to all for all the advice. Last time I had this problem I had to use
    Regedit to remove about 1000 entries, was hoping to avoid the same. Looks as
    though I will have to resort to that, as nothing else suggested has worked.

    Great feedback, very much appreciated.

    BobT in thanks
