Default A bit confused can anybody help?

Im new on here and i was wondering if somebody could help me out with a problem im having. I just recently bought guitar hero 3 for my girlfriend for her pc. She is running vista. Now, I installed the game and then had to uninstall it. So when it came time to install it again it wouldnt let me. It still had the installer program on the computer and when i went to remove it from the computer it would get about 3/4 done and it would just go away and not take it off. It was saying it couldnt gather the right information for the program to be removed. Ive ran CCleaner with the registry and it still didnt work. So can anybody help me and tell me how i can take it off?! Thanks.

This can be a pain in the arse sometimes when installers go wrong. Your best bet is to go into safe mode (tap F8 before Windows boots) to enter it, and try and uninstall it there.

Try deleting all of the files manually.
