gemal.dk - Really remove Netmeeting: "Really remove Netmeeting
I wanted to remove NetMeeting from my Windows XP machine. So I found this command that should do the trick:
%systemroot%\system32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection NetMtg.Remove 132 msnetmtg.inf
BUT whenever I ran that command all the Netmeetings files were deleted but suddenly reappeared after a few seconds. Damn annoying! It's due to the Windows File Protection feature.
So to really remove Netmeeting from your system do this:
1. Compare the Netmeeting directory with the %systemroot%\ServicePackFiles\i386\ directory and delete the duplicate files in the %systemroot%\ServicePackFiles\i386\ directory.
2. Do this same with the %systemroot%\system32\dllcache\ directory.
3. Now there should't be any backup Netmeeting files for the Windows File Protection feature to restore from.
4. Now do Start -> Run -> %systemroot%\system32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection NetMtg.Remove 132 msnetmtg.inf and Netmeeting is gone.
Remember it's always a good idea to run a registry cleanup after an uninstall. I love the jv16 PowerTools.
I still haven't found a way to remove the empty microsoft frontpage, MSN Gaming Zone and xerox directories."
