changing MOBO on same Windows HDD

Hi,

During the installations of various motherboards - Lets say Asus motherboard XYZ was being used, complete with the APPS for that motherboard for the utility software for that specific motherboard.

Then say I switched (which I did to try another board)_lets say MSI motherboard XYZ - With the same installation of Windows etc......

All that is needed is to install the drivers for MSI motherboard XYZ for it to function correctly - OK

But there was a little problem that I overlooked - the utility software for ASUS motherboard XYZ was still on the desktop and could not be removed because the Asus board was no longer being used and for some reason the add remove programs did not work

>>>> Is it possible to use a dedicated un-installer program for hard to remove programs if this occurs again in the future? - (which it will as it's a good time saver sometimes)

Glarysoft have an un-installer program - there will be others but any good advice here appreciated to avoid annoying little problems here and there - Thanks

i'd be surprised if you couldn't find a community made uninstaller for this exact purpose.

if not, you'd just have to google up a reputable random one & whack away.

I've always been paranoid, so I keep a windows image on a thumb drive, with an essentials installer sequence. it installs os, licenses, creates your user account, n installs apps. all within like 10 minutes n only a few clicks.

...if OP feel courageous, he/she can hack away at anything 'Asus..(AI suite?)' in the windows registry...been there, done that.

No need to hack away at anything! - Just a problem that was experienced - Of course the original board can be installed and the apps removed - Just thought I'd ask here to see if anyone had a good idea - I'll see what can be done if and when the problem occurs again.

something I said to the T2 dude @ work today

"bro, it's literally ALL in the registry... That doesn't mean you should go in there & start clear cutting"

"nah man, it was gonna be a precision strike"

mhm, we all know how precise those are.
