    I installed Print Shop Essentials 15 on my Win8 computer and it did not run very well.

    When I tried to uninstall it, there is no listing in in the uninstall program and there is no uninstall in the Broderbund directory. I also use "My Uninstall" program and also no uninstall program.

    Although I could keep it and not use it, it would be nice to clean it up.

    I am surprised that Broderbund left that out.

    Any ideas as to how to get rid of it?

    Check the reviews. Wow!

    Version 15 is from the WinXP era. And early .NET.
    You'd probably want to do "properties" on the installed
    executable, and select WinXP compatibility. Apparently, this
    product interacts with a web server running on your own
    computer (IIS). Or at least, has that option.

    The program is huge, so you wouldn't exactly expect it to be
    a sparkling example of compatibility. It it tries to "touch" every
    subsystem on the computer, there are things that are bound to be


    In your current mess, you would reinstall it. To put all the
    pieces back, that might enable a clean uninstallation. There
    are tools such as Revo Uninstaller, which might be used.

    I hope you have a backup of that OS, or set a System Restore
    point. Perhaps using a Restore Point and going back in time to a
    time before the installation, will remove all of it.

    Thanks, Paul, I am going to download Revo Uninstaller and also keep it for future use if needed.
