    Uninstalling files with damaged .inf's

    Ok heres the deal,
    I have a program installed on my computer, it's registered on the master hdd, and all the data is on the slave drive. The problem is the inf file is blank because it got screwed up somehow so i can't uninstall it, and the windows add remove can't do it either becuase of that. Is there software I can download to get rid of it? If all else fails i'll just regedit on the master disk cause the slave is getting formatted later tonight, but i just didn't want to format it and have that program still registered on the master. In case it's pertinent it's xp pro, and the program is deer hunter 4. Thanks.

    Well there are a few third party uninstall managers here:

    If these don't work i would try the registry tricks.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks, but they ended up trying to use the bad inf (cheap bastards). Any how i ended up using this along with regedit and microsoft regclean to fix it, then i just formatted the drive it was installed on like i planned, worked like a charm. But thanks for the reply.
