So anyway I've been forced to delete my copy of PowerDVD's (ver 7) folder because the damn thing wouldn't let me uninstall itself with its own utility. Having done that and cleaning out its registry and installation file it should reinstall right? WRONG! It seems the program despite being completely deleted is still somehow on my machine, confusing the reinstallation utility and preventing me from putting it back on (installation says that it needs to uninstall the existing copy... then fails to load the rest of setup). Anybody got any suggestions as to how to fix this?
