    "impossible to uninstall (anyone know how to fix this?)"

    January 6, 2008  |   By eddddd3


    When I tried to install it (on Windows XP with SP2), I got an error message that said "could not move uninstall executable to window directory". It seemed to install OK, but now there is no uninstall option under the Start menu or in the control panel for adding/removing programs. Does anyone know what I should do to remove LeechFTP completely?

    I have a Dell PC with XP (SP3) and have just had a similar problem being unable to find a way of uninstalling Leech.
    The actions I've just undertaken seems to have worked and were as follows...
    1) Checked to see if there was a suitable restore point in System Restore (in case of any problems).
    2) Went to My Computer > Local Disc (C:) > Program Files > Found Leech FTP folder and deleted it.
    3) Went to Search > all files and folders > typed in Leech FTP and carried out a search in (C:)
    4) Deleted any Leech files and folders that came up.
    5) Emptied recycle bin.
    6) Opened CCleaner (free software available through Cnet) and scanned for registry issues and fixed what came up.
    7) Restarted computer and carried out another search?.. Nothing came up.

    I am not a computer expert and do not claim that what I have done is the correct procedure, but it seems to have worked for me.
    I would strongly advise that if at all unsure about trying it for yourself, please consult an expert.
