Deleting Corel
by Kono Kusotare / January 8, 2006 6:38 AM PST

I would double click your C or local disk, open program files folder, locate Corel Photo and delete the entire folder. Also use Search to look for Corel related files/folders. If it locates a program file/folder, delete it.

Still Pops Up to Reinstall Corel 6

Thanks, but I have all ready tried that option first. I show no corel files at all when I search for them, even in hidden files. I have no corel folder in windows explorer, only in add/remove programs, but it offers me no option to delete from system.I HAVE RUN SPYBOT, HIJACK THIS, AND ADAWARE. I EVEN PURCHASED REIGTRY FIX, FOUND COREL ENTRIES, AND DELETED THEM. I have noticed today after rechecking MSconfig, the two processes I unchecked on startup tab are still unchecked, but now there are TWO more identical processes that addded on and they are checked now.

I have same problem
by WOODS-HICK / May 14, 2006 3:29 AM PDT

wonder if yours was solved. dell xpsp2, came with corel photo 6 trial. after trial I did the add/remove, delete the related c:\ folder drill. Good news: I can't open associated picture files. More important BAD news: if I download image using IE6 or Fx 1.5 it becomes my default program. It seems to be embedded somewhere?

I have downloaded irfan and faststone but have not installed them. trying to rid remnants of photoalbum6 first.

I am not familiar with irfan or faststone, could I install either as a default 'workaround'? I welcome any input. Thanks

thanks to the searching tips I've learned in the cnet forums. google>persistence>dig deep>get lucky. so I now have the 'secret' uninstall program from corel. they really don't want you dump them. everything is gone like a bad dream.

I would have gone to registry

I have been able to delete Internet Explorer 6.0 and other items. Strt to Run type in Regedit, at the top is Edit and that drops down to Find and I leave the last box unchecked. Type in Corel. every top link is attached to the corel link (see the lines at an angle) so you delete the top link and all the others will go. To find more use your F3 key and it will keep searching for all. Each time it stops, delelte again as above until it says finished searching. Darrell Lewis

Thanks but

where were you on the 14th? Just kidding. My dell also came withe corel word perfect. So removing photo is a little more involved. Regedit in this instance is not that clear. I searched the corel kb and downloaded their uninstall utility. It was so easy. Run>check necessary items>hit button>all gone. Time elapsed: about 15 seconds. Plus within utility I can remove other corel programs completely.

Thanks again for trying to help me.
