Hi, and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be assisting with your question.

 

First off, please download the Revo Uninstaller Utility using the following link:
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

 

Done that, run and use the utility to look for and uninstall any reference to the File Minimizer program and Context Menu program (if available) accordingly. Make sure to right-click on the program entry, and click the 'Forced Uninstall' option to remove it, as well as select and remove ALL traces of the registry entries listed, left in the process.

 

Let me know if this resolves the issue you are having.

 

Regards.

Hi, I did instal" revouninstaller", but I couldnt find the program that bother me, so I cant uninstal it. I was looking and triyng to find any trace of this program on my computer. But is like invisible, its apearing when do you right click on the mouse. It says "unregistred version" and is starting to count down. Nothing is reacting before the count down is finished. And if you do push the "x" button to close it , its starting to count down again. Its very annoing and is some kind of gost program.

Expert:  Matt replied 3 years ago.

I see. Now, please click on the following link to download and install the Windows Installer Cleanup utility:

 

http://tinyurl.com/5t94m5e


Then, go to Start > All Programs > Windows Installer Cleanup; in the window that comes up, check if there is any reference to the program in question and remove it from there.

 

If necessary, try installing the program again and then check.

 

Let me know how it goes.

Expert:  Matt replied 3 years ago.
Ok, did you try installing the Context Menu Platinum program first and then look under Windows Installer Cleanup?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I did this before and I used "revo uninstaler " after. And it happen how I said it came back after 2 weeks

It seems that Revo didn't clear out the program properly. Please try the same steps with the Windows Installer Cleanup utility and let me know how it goes.

Do you have Nero installed on your system by any chance?

 

Please go to Start>All Programs. Is FileMinimizer listed there?

 

Also, please go to Start>type shellmenu in the search bar. Does anything come up?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
