    You could try the free proggie MSICU.EXE. This undoes installer issues with MSI (you can zap the entry for the required proggie to make it look uninstalled. Google finds it fast.

    Try CCleaner it free and works fine for most users.

    I agree with os2fan2, ccleaner won't fix or remove corrupted msi installer files.

    Just checked the MSICU.EXE wont help your installer is Nullsoft (NSIS)

    you could try silent install see what happens it may overwrite not sure

    Code:
    TheGreenBow_VPN_Client.exe /S
    Or even use system restore and put system back to before you installed it.

    Thanks guys for the inputs.

    What I did I used Registry Mechanic and it fixed the problem.

    Personally i use perfect uninstaller. It works very well, getting rid of all traces of an uninstalled program. Very handy if you are evaluating software and the trial period expires. :D
