SafeMSI

Recommended Posts

Problem is some uninstallers will put up a big fuss when trying to remove them in safe mode if they're MSI based, usually with words like "System Damage, System Corruption", etc.

great find.

i'll be trying it out the next time i have to remove crapware in safe mode.

as you say hazelnut, i had plenty of times when it would have come in very handy, hope it works as good in practice as it sounds...

just a bit of feedback.

had my first chance today to use SafeMSI and it worked !.

 

i tried removing some crap, and as usual, Windows said 'no, not in safe mode', so thinking all SafeMSI did was start the Installer service, I manually tried to start it.

again, Windows said 'no, can't be done in safe mode'

 

ran SafeMSI, it stated it had started the service, i tried the uninstall again, and all good.

 

nice little program. it's been added to my little toolbox of goodies for other such ocassions.

Nice hat, mta. :)

 

i felt like getting in the mood of the season, having just done the house and put up the tree.

plus, there was all the peer group pressure, seemed i might as well join in.

- I have a pretty good idea what "trick" this program "has up its sleeve". Tweaking's Windows Repair employs the same kind of trick to make it possible to run some repairs in Safe Mode.
