I have a number of casinos on my computer like Captain Cooks, Lucky Nugget, Ruby Fortune etc., but I can't remove them.

I have gone into add and remove and I'm getting error - Could not find INSTALLOG programme.

Has anybody any idea how I can get them off my computer.

Thanks

Simplest is to attempt to reinstall them so that it fixes the uninstall option, then as soon as installation is finished, uninstall again. Allow it to add links to the "start menu", as it will add an uninstall option.

Less simple is to go into the casino folder in program files and see if the uninstall program is there. if it is, execute it directly by clicking on it.

Most complex of all is manual removal of the casino folder in "program files". This will remove the casino files, but will leave more traces in the registry than would be left by a proper uninstall. These registry traces can be manually removed, but can also be left there as they will remember your account number in case you ever want to play there again, although US players may think that unlikely for the present.

Usually if you choose the casino name from your start menu >>>>then programs, you will see the casino name. An arrow should pop out from the casino name and you will see Uninstall in that list. Choose this and you should be good to go!!
Good luck :thumbsup:

Nevermind LOLOLOL! vinylweatherman is way to good!

I also had these problems, sometimes reinstalling and (re)uninstalling didn't help. Just delete the folders and use a program like RegCleaner to delet them from the registrie, or do it manualy (regedit) but for that you should know what you need and what not, as it can screw up your windows ^^

VWM hit it on the head, install or re-

Otherwise you get those problems and have to do the other things he said. And who wants to go there?

A clean table is a happy table :D

Personally I use Uninstaller pro whch also has a forced removal option for any software that is loitering on your HD.
I also use my antivirus and a great free antispyware, called "superantispyware" appropriately enough, to get rid of all the trackers and stuff the Casinos leave behind.

Or you can just uninstall it from the control panel without cluttering up your start menu.

Casino's I currently have to manually uninstall because niether control panel nor crap cleaner uninstalls work. I didn't add them to my start menu when installed:

Breakaway
Cirrus
Slots of vegas

Why are they there in the first place, you might ask:oops: No, I never deposited.

99% of the time, the casinos & poker rooms will leave traces in your registry when you use their uninstall - saving your username and password information in hopes that you will return someday...lol
