Re: Need help performing clean uninstall of NVDA

Hi all.

Yes, it is enough for clean all NVDA data, but delete keys from the registry don’t is very necessary. In the registry, NVDA save the folder of configuration (roaming or APPdata\locale) and the option of secure mode in secure screens like the user account control. So, if you uninstall NVDA, restart your system and delete the folder of configuration, you can install again NVDA and after your addons without problems.

Hi to all

Please, how to perform a clean uninstall of NVDA.

I and some other people have problem with lbl add-on, an add-on to use

along with Reaper. The author said that the only way he or she know is

to reinstall Windows, then install NVDA, then the add-on should work.

I'm not sure that error come from NVDA or not, but if remove via program

and feature, delete NVDA folder from roamming, and even find and delete

keys from registry. Is it enough to clean all NVDA data from a computer?

Any help would be appreciated.
