problems after uninstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I uninstalled 7zip and now seems I can't open some programs and desktop icons can't be opened by double clicking

    On of the programs I try to open gives this message

    "Windows Registration Database does not contain the information necessary to run an OLE2.0 Application such as WPWin.  Registering the information contained in OLE2.REG may fix Problem"


    DO I need to reinstall windows?

    Hi, I have the same problem.

    Used the system restore to get XP working again but I want to remove 7-zip.  I have tried the uninstaller from 7-zip and crap cleaner; same result every time, can't open most programs.

    Any idea's please. 

    Thanks Beenie

  • Hi

    I have the exact same problem.

    I realized the 7-zip installation was a fake. The real one doesn't ask for all these partner softwares to install during the install process.

    Have Xp sp3 with system restore disabled to save disk space so this solution is out for me.

    Anyone has any suggestion? Thanks.
