Nowadays, installing and uninstalling programs has become an every day’s routine. The procedure is quite simple and doesn’t require any technical background. As a matter of fact, thanks to a wizard procedure which shows you what to do step-by-step, you will be able to install and uninstall practically all programs with no exception. A good number of this software relies on the famous Windows Installer also known as MSI which is a standard, common package for installing, uninstalling and maintaining your software, available in all Microsoft Windows systems. But what happen when, for some reason, its files get corrupted? Simple, you won’t be able to perform the operations described above. Here is a simple solution to solve this issue!

Windows Installer Cleanup utility is a simple, freeware software which “removes installation information for programs that were installed by using Windows Installer”. In this way all issues as well as corrupted files will be removed  from thr PC allowing you to perform the installation or uninstallation all over again, before the appearance of any issue. Here is a list of its features:

  • Select one or more programs that were installed by Windows Installer from the Windows Installer CleanUp dialog box.
  • Remove all Windows Installer information associated with the selected programs. This includes the entries for the programs in the Add Or Remove Programs item in Control Panel.
  • Beware that this utility doesn’t remove any program nor the MSI.
  • This utility works with  all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows.
