Honored as the new star product from WiseCleaner.com, Wise Program Uninstaller really deserves its name. It is better than similar programs at uninstalling stubborn unwanted or unnecessary programs. Besides, the leftovers can be removed off completely and easily by it.


If you want to free up some space, and have to remove some unwanted programs, the most common way you prefer is going to the control panel, but what to do if the program won’t uninstall, if you receive an error during the removal? Follow me to find its method. 


Method 1:  Use safe mode 


Safe mode offers you a safe place to fix some windows problems including removing stubborn programs. 


Step 1: Go to “Start Menu” and click “Power” icon, then select “Restart” as holding the “Shift” key down.

Method 2: Use a third-party uninstaller


If Windows can’t uninstall, some third-party uninstaller may be able to remove the stubborn program. I recommend the free Wise Program Uninstaller, which will give you a list of all the programs installed in your computer, and you can easily select and click on “Uninstall” to remove the unwanted program including the stubborn one.

Just clicking the program you want to uninstall and choose “Safe Uninstall” or “Forced Uninstall”.

In addition, the custom uninstall can help you completely remove the stubborn program which can’t be listed in Wise Program Uninstaller.
