How to remove a registry program called Registry Mechanic

by tsherm / October 8, 2009 10:53 AM PDT

This is a so called free program however it is beyond me to remove it because when you come to the part to remove a message says cannot be removed because it it still running and appearts to be in some kind of a loop. Any help would be appreciated.

Ensure that Registry Mechanic has been closed.
Uninstall Registry Mechanic by clicking on Start -> All Programs / Programs -> Registry Mechanic (folder) -> Uninstall Registry Mechanic and follow the prompts to remove the application from your computer.
If necessary, navigate to the "Registry Mechanic" folder on your hard drive and delete the folder and its entire contents. This folder is usually found within the "Program Files" folder.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
