The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility helps to remove installation configuration settings that may be causing performance issues. Installation and registry settings can pose a big problem when it comes time to modify or remove programs. Incomplete or damaged files will prevent users from making any changes to a program. Usually, a complicated process of searching through the various registry files would be required. Then, users would need to input lines of code to fix the problem. The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility can be used to avoid that problem.
It acts as a front-end option that will help users identify and erase any configuration settings that come with a standard installer. The program can find and identify problem files that are affecting the performance of the program and preventing any modification. Once found, users can get rid of the files and make it possible to modify the program as they please.
The user interface is very simple in design. The window displays all of the installed programs on the system in alphabetical order. From there, users can select the specific problem program and click "remove." This will make it possible to fully delete the program from the computer. There's also an option to select or clear every option. To ensure that users understand what they're doing, the program displays warnings during every step of the process. While it may not replace the standard Add/Remove functions of a computer, it's a great way for less-experienced users to clean up installers and improve program performance.
