How to uninstall program from command line


J

Jennifer Ebenhoeh

Hi.
I have WIN2000 SP4. When I installed the SP4, it appears
to have a conflict with old Iomega drivers. I am having
trouble even getting the computer to boot up. I am
thinking that if I can uninstall the iomega programs in
safe mode with command line (which I can sometimes get
into) that I may be able to boot in the normal safe mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA.

I don't know if this would work in a command-line only safe mode, but you
can get the uninstall command from the registry at

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\[name of
application]\UninstallString
If you see QuietUninstalString, that would be the one I'd try first, but not
all applications have a QuietUninstallString

You can export the registry (in administrator account)
and then just delete your unwanted data,
and dump back the registry, but keep the exported one,
so you still have a backup.

Sometimes if the application you are looking for is not listed under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\[name of
application]\UninstallString you can find them straight under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\ with example like {350C97B0-3D7C-4EE8-BAA9-00BCB3D54227}

What I'm guessing is if you have NoRemove and NoRemoveInitialValue set to 1 then you can't uninstall. So the two keys might have to be changed to 0(guessing. Be careful while doing so).

And do you know how to uninstall windows latest update with command prompt ?
there is a command line tool for managing windows updates.
the command for uninstalling a certain update with a known KB-ID is for example:
Code:
WUInstall.exe /uninstall /match KB123456
i would like to disable or uninstall windows defender as i can access the command prompt but i can't find how to do ?
unfortunately i dont know if it is possible to disable it via cmd :confused:
