It gives me this message...
what the hell did i do?
you deleted install.log
You can't uninstall ANY program, or just one specific one?
If it's just one specific one, then reinstall it (the program) over the top of the one running now. That will reinstall the install.log, and you can delete the program.
If it's all programs, then I'm stumped.
EasyCleaner will do it for you.
Sorry, its not all programs, just a few.
What I don't get is when did I delete the install.log file? Could I have done it with regscrubber?
I'm not familiar with that one, but I've used other cleaner programs and had all sorts of stuff get deleted. One of the popular antispyware programs deleted the settings on just about everything!
yes, VERY possible with regscruber. I *HATE* programs like that. People recommend them here and I just CRINGE. You should NEVER delete files that you don't know what they do.
Then why are those files visible and user-deletable?
I'd say blame the shitty installers and software, not the users/tools.
ALL files can be deleted. You can set them "hidden" but you can still delete them, DOS still lists them, programatically getting listings will still show it, etc.
And linux is no different. You can delete anything, and if you do, you deal with the consequences.
