Default Registry Help

Hello,

This problem started about a year ago. I had the game Command And Conqure generals, but it stuffed up and was corrupted. i uninstalled it but it seems the uninstall failed.

Whenever i try and install C&C Generals i get this error


I have done everything i can to remove this string from the registry and it is not there.

I have:

1.search and deleted it form the registry manually allong with anything with the words commad and conqure generals.
2. Used registry cleaning programs
3. Gone throught the uninstall manual on EAs website

Nothing i seem to do can fix this problem and i can tell u that string is not in the registry.

Try something called system mechanic. It has many options and resolve a lot of issues.

Great little program, thanks.

Regsupreme is quite thorough:
