Uninstall Errors – What are the Causes and How to Fix Them?

What are Uninstall Errors?

Most of us download the latest applications and tools to our PCs. After downloading when we find that the application is not useful as we thought, the first thing we do is, clean up the desktop by uninstalling the downloaded application. Generally, we use the uninstall feature of the operating system. Right after uninstalling, we sometimes face uninstall errors. The uninstall feature with corrupted or damaged parts cause these errors most of the times.

How To Fix Uninstall Errors?

There are several ways to fix uninstalling errors. Downloading the latest version of the application is the simplest method for you to solve these errors at home. Then, enlist the uninstall feature of the latest version of the downloaded software application. Using the add/remove option, you can remove these errors.

It helps to ensure that you have successfully done with the proceedings. RegCure is a reliable and high-end registry repair tool.

Warning: editing the windows registry manually can be a daunting and risky task.

Uninstall Error 1324

A typical one among uninstalling errors is Error 1324. It can occur when you install or uninstall software. If the path to a folder on your desktop contains an invalid character, it refers to a problem with the shell folders.

You can manually solve the error by correcting the path for the application through the modification of the registry and by resetting all shell folders in the registry. Both these steps require you to edit the registry. Two registry keys are there in Windows XP and Vista:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

Error 1404

Error 1404 is one of the common uninstall errors, when you remove software. The ‘xxxxxx’ refers to a registry key. Deleting the registry key becomes a problem due to insufficient privileges. Deleting the registry key after changing the access rights for it is the manual solution to this error.

Other Errors While Uninstalling

You can reinstall the problematic application and uninstall it afterwards to address uninstall errors in case there has not been any change in the PC configuration. Reinstalling and then uninstalling can fix any uninstall errors in the registry paths.

If your operating system is integrated with antivirus software, it requires adequate access rights for installing as well as uninstalling antivirus programs. Error 25002, which occurs when you uninstall Norton Antivirus software, is a common example of an uninstalling error.
