V17 Won't UN-install

I decided to clean up my system and uninstall some of the previous versions I no longer need. V17 and the goodies add-on refuse to uninstall. When I try I get a brief flash of the scrolling wait symbol and a message come up on the screen (that is so brief I can't even see what it says) then nothing.

Maybe a java issue or something? Any idea's?

You could always just delete the program folder.
It will mean that there will be registry entries that won't be cleaned up and there will be 'user profile' files that won't get deleted.
You could track all these down and manually delete them but they will cause no harm if they stay.

Yes I could but I really don't like doing that I'd rather do a proper full install. Maybe I will try and find out what version of java was current at the time that software was used then roll back to it and try again as I have had problems installing the older versions due to java issues.
