Manual Removal for DVD Movie Factory 7

In order to re-install DVD Movie Factory 7, we recommend completely removing all traces of DVD Movie Factory manually. The following steps guide you through a complete removal of the application.

Before removing Corel DVD MovieFactory 7, ensure that Corel DVD MovieFactory is not running, and that any of the utilities that are installed with it are also turned off, such as Quick Drop 3 and Burn Now 4.5.

Only delete the folders if they exist, and you permission to do so on the system. If one cannot delete a folder, try renaming the folder by adding ".old" to the name of the folder.

As with installing a program, the user should ensure full administrator privileges before removing Corel DVD MovieFactory 7.

Uninstall the Program from the Control Panel

Open your Windows Control Panel, and select "Add or Remove Programs" (In Windows Vista it is called "Programs and Features" or "Uninstall Program")

Select Corel DVD Movie Factory 7" from the list

Click on the "Remove" or "Uninstall" button. (Sometimes it is called "Change/Remove")

Use Windows Install Cleanup Utility

Microsoft has created a utility to remove programs that are unable to install properly. This utility makes sure that a program no longer appears in the Control Panel’s "Add or Remove Programs’. It can be found in the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Once it is installed, find the program (in Start -> All Programs), and run it. The program will show you a list of programs and components that are still installed on one’s computer.

One of the entries will be "Corel DVD MovieFactory 7". If you find an entry with that name, highlight it, and click the "Remove" button, and hit "Exit" when done.
