Well, I'm done with the CIS Script; just have to re-do other scripts, and as well make a "Command Line" Version, for those who don't have a lot of bandwidth to waste

No New Features other than Logging, and of Course Command Line;


I'm going to bed, My eyes are strained from staring at this laptop all night :P

A lot of work to do on the script(s) tomorrow; Hopefully I get done by tomorrow like i said i would
Thanks....Jake

XP Home edition does not include taskkill, as per
http://www.computerhope.com/taskkill.htm

Therefore CIS.BAT needs a fix at where you kill cfp.exe and cmdagent.exe,
unless it is feasible/legal to download taskkill from some source.

XP Home includes TSKILL.exe with sort of similar capability,
but it may need a separate line for each target and I do not know if cmdagent.exe has too much access restriction.

If you need further information then :-

and there is a very friendly XP DOS forum that has rapidly responded to my needs at
http://www.dostips.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=3

I have taken the liberty of posting a query on this in case the answer will help you.  see

I'm slightly back;

Moderator OmeletGuy is redesigning the UI; and I'm Updating Scripts as well as adding new products that were released as well making different distributions (See below more information)... Should be released June 30'th


Distributions:

Full(8-10MB): Nothing Has Changed;

Lite(<2MB): Download the clean-up tool for the product that you only need without having to download the 10MB file

Command-Line Full(<900KB): Includes Clean-Up Support for all the applications but Text-Based UI



Logging Will be Available for all versions,


I want to expand the language also.. so I'm hoping few people can translate few things ..
.

As a Reminder: This is not to replace the built-in Uninstaller (Please Run The Built-In Uninstallers First!)

Hi Jacob. I think the quote above should be added to your Opening Post along with 32bit/64bit compatability. Just an idea. Kind regards.

OK, so in fact this Clean Up tool removes "more" than the normal Uninstaller tool that goes with the product, that leaves leftovers in the registry.

Would it remove more than f.e. a tool like Revo Uninstaller ?

And if I want to remove everything from the Comodo product in question, without having had a problem b4 by installing/uninstalling can I still use it after having used the normal Comodo's uninstaller ? Just because perhaps I don't want anything left ?

Fact is that if one uses the normal uninstaller first some software manufacturers (I don't know about Comodo) just put something extra in place "b4" removing the product. We all know what of course ...

Hello GuyD;

This isn't a replacement tool for the built-in uninstaller in any way..
 
Revo Uninstaller is a great tool; but In a sense the answer would be Yes, I'll have to put Revo in a test in order to find out exactly; It's just Revo can detect the UID and right now this tool cannot so maybe 5 or 6 Registry Keys are left over(will be changed in 4.0), Other than that This tool can remove more then Revo; We Focus on Just 22 Products As For Revo Tries to Use an Analyzer to detect What Product Uses What Registry/File but Can't detect the Temporary Files or after restart cannot detect what was left over; as for us we use a different method :)

You can use it After using the Built-in Unlike Revo; We don't have the application analyze anything (besides 64 bit or 32 bit); we have the application target specific Files for removal/deletion; using a File/Registry Database;

Yes; Thats the one of the primary reasons why we built this tool is to clean up left over temp files or stubborn files that weren't removed while using the built-in;




Thanks....Jake

Please "include me out" of your " We all know"
I do not know what they put in place.

Perhaps I do not go to the same interesting places in the Internet !

There are people that still want to use software after the trial period is over. So they think let me uninstall it, and reinstall it, and I will have a trial period reset. Wrong and not very smart. Even if you use an uninstaller like Revo in expert mode it won't delete that particular file or registry key.

The product will uninstall itself but puts something extra or does not delete something to just prevent that. So every, and I mean every software manufacturer just puts something in the registry or in some hidden file.

That's just what I was refering too, and having access to that information is just that and doesn't mean I would use such despicable method to try to use software again after the trial period.

Knowing that

Not sure if this is related to the Cleanup tool but after uninstalling Comodo Internet Security (latest version as of last week, firewall only) and rebooting then running this tool and rebooting now Windows Security Center doesn't recognize Avast! as my antivirus (shows nothing is installed).
