Today, I’d like to share a little Microsoft utility with you that just might save your day! It’s a free download and it’s called the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. It has a couple of small, yet helpful features if you ever happen to find yourself in a bind. Let’s take a look!
Have you ever started up your computer and had the Windows Installer open automatically and try to install a program? If that’s never happened to you, you’re one of the lucky ones. When that type of problem happens, there are some very complicated steps to fix it. Luckily, Microsoft realized that and they created the Installer Cleanup Utility. In most cases, the utility will fix those issues.
The utility also fixes installer issues that are caused by incomplete installations. If you’ve ever had an install fail and you can’t get it fixed on your own, the Cleanup Utility may be able to help you as well!
The Windows Installer Cleanup Utility is simple to download and run. Simply go here and scroll down the page a little bit. Then click on the link that says “Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility package now.”
At that point, you can choose Save or Run, depending on whether or not you want to save it to your computer. Either way, this utility is a great resource. Enjoy!
