    Exclamation Uninstall doesn't work

    Some programs I can uninstall fine, but there are a lot that I would like to uninstall that wont work either in the Add\Remove programs or in the start menu. When I click on uninstall I get the following error

    RUNDLL
    Error loading c:\progra~1\common~1\instal~1\professional\runtime \0701\intel32\ctor.dll
    The specified module could not be found.

    I have looked all over the internet even on the installshield site but I have no idea how to fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have no experience with your problem but I may have found a replacement ctor.dll file for you: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-.../download.html Use it at your own risk. I d-loaded it and scanned it with AVG and A Squared and found no bugs but still no garantee that it will solve the problem either.

    Try googleing "ctor.dll" for a lot of info ... most related to Hotbar but so far as I can discover the location you give is a legit .dll file for Installsheild.

    I have tried to download the file and place it in the folders that it wants to see it in but that didn't work. There is a ctor.dll file in the installshield directory but in a whole different set of sub folders.
