    I am glad I have discovered this site. Upto now I haven’t heard about uninstaller. It is very appealing to have a system. I will definitely try this and keep up the good work. Because I am new to this, I will probably have some issues. I will post them when I encounter them. Thank you.

    I don’t get a error message at all, sims 3 won’t un-install either using the sims uninstall or Via control panel -un-install programs. I run your product it finds a couple of entries after clicking scan, I’ll look to see if its gone.
