    Unable to uninstall scanner utility for Windows

    When I attempt to install a driver to my Windows device a weird message is appearing on the device. “Scanner Utility for Microsoft Windows: Installation is not necessary, for it is already installed.” When I attempt to uninstall the scanner utility, uninstall would run but it doesn’t remove it from the Control Panel. What is the fix for this?

    Turn on your system and when the desktop screen appears hold down the Windows Key and then press on the R button. Type regedit on the textbox and then press on the enter key. On the left pane of the window just select the Computer which is at the top of the screen. Select Edit > Find. Then select “Scanner Utility” on the FindWhat box. Right after that just check on the boxes against Keys, Data, Values, and Match Whole String. Then select find. Then the registry editor searches for the registry entries with term “Scanner Utility”. Then it will show the registry entry named “Scanner Utility for Microsoft Windows”, just delete it. When you are done exit from the page.

    What you can do at the moment is , try a third party uninstaller to uninstall the sticky installation from Windows .Log into http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_..._download.html, download rhis program Revo Uninstaller from there, use that to completely uninstall the Scanner Utility from Windows with removal of registry entry too, and finish the uninstallation.Revo is a more powerful program than common Windows Utilities, like Uninstaller, which fails in its job if a little change is observed, but Revo can do the uninstallation , at ease.Once the job done, try to install whichever utility you like without issues.
