uninstall question

i wanted to do a fresh install of CPM. i already have it installed but i dont want to lose all my monitored applications so whats the best way to uninstall?

im thinking just uninstall but move the fileimage.dat so its not deleted
will this work


The safe and recommended way to repair CPM is to run the setup “on top” of the current installation. The only files which are left untouched during an update are fileimage.dat and CUSettings.ini.

Is there a reason for which you wish to perform a fresh install of CPM?

i want to uninstall because i have been upgrading, just installing the new over the old, since pretty much version 1.0 and i know that this sometimes can cause problems. i have seen dramatic performance increases when doing fresh intalls and just feel its time to clean out the old files.
