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.
