InstallerExplorer shows hidden installed products

InstallerExplorer is a small lightning fast utility that allows you to list, view detailed information and uninstall software installed on your machine without your knowledge. Some products mark themselves as “System Components” to hide from windows internal list in add/remove programs. This application also allows you to see where in the registry the product was found, and where the product is installed. Many users are not aware that windows installer packages at the moment of installation are cached in a windows folder using a rather cryptic filename, this utility takes care of those also.

Locating the program(s) you wish to uninstall

If you’re using the standard add/remove programs feature in windows, you know it’s often a time consuming task just to launch it and wait for all items to show. This tool, not only lists the entries available there, but also lists all other software installed that might be hidden. All this in just a matter of seconds.

Windows Installer Cache

In the “%windows%installer” folder Windows stores copies of all Windows Installer packages that you install, these are safe to remove, but can come in handy when you wish to modify or remove products so the recommendation is to leave them at their place. However, it you need to find out the specific filename for a cached installer, this utility will be the quickest way as the filenames are randomly generated during install.

 

Words of Caution

 

There are entries that are hidden for a reason. Do not uninstall software if you’re unsure what it is, it may cause system instability.
