Unknown programs in CCleaner uninstall list


Recommended Posts

I had never install this PrintDialog program and I can't uninstall it. I can't seem to find where is the location of the main files or the registry key. That program also isn't available in windows default programs uninstaller. Can someone please guide me on how to remove this particular program from CCleaner uninstall list

I use Windows 10 version 2004

CCleaner also shows PrintDialog in my uninstall list so I think you can stop worrying.

I will try and find out some more info about why it is there..

Is this a new setup? Everthing there (apart from Nvidia) is showing as intalled today.

I'd guess the printdialog was part of the install of one of the others.

Try a Restart (not Shutdown) and see if that will clear it.

I think it may be something to do with Win Updates? It shows mine as having been installed on the 11th when I did the last lot of Win Updates.

Did you do yours today?

It's part of Windows and controls the printing UI when called from various apps, so that they can use the common Windows print UI rather than each having it's own different one.

It's probably been put there by one of the C+ redisributables or pdanet+, but any app that prints can modify/use it.

Could be, but  CCleaner shouldn't put it in the uninstall list, that's wrong. 

Windows itself doesn't list it in Apps or the old Control Panel (programs and Features).

Yes I just installed the Windows today and everything is new that is why I am wondering just where did that PrintDialog came from. I can't even uninstall it

I am not sure about the C+ redistributables but I am sure pdanet+ is not the reason for that problem since I already seen that program even before installing pdanet+

As I said above, I believe it is something to do with this weeks' Win Updates. I have asked CCleaner admins for more info about it.

How I'm at home I've checked my laptop and I also have it showing in CCleaner Uninstall - But on mine it's showing as installed on 28/05/2020, which is when I updated to Win10 2004.

However I haven't done this weeks Patch Tuesday updates yet, which I guess may reinstall/update it?

It's still a bit of a mystery of why it's showing in CCleaner Uninstall like that?

However the fact that CCleaner can't uninstall it and that the other options, (and the boxes on the right), are greyed out indicates that it's one of the Windows default apps; you see the same thing with other Windows default apps such as the Microsoft Store that can't be uninstalled normally either.
(PS. Your screenshot does seem particularly bereft of all those Windows default apps?)

Yeah I uninstalled all of the unused default windows apps using the CCleaner itself

I have several computers and all at current windows update + Ccleaner and this particular one has PrintDialog and can not remove it.

I don't think it's part of windows update.

(I, ah, certainly wouldn't try to follow the prompts on that page though, it looks like they held to their template a little more closely than intended.

"3. Follow the prompts to remove Windows 10 Operating System." :))
