I'm so unsatisfied with foxit, that I want to go back to Adobe 5.
Uninstalling Foxit isn't possible in a standard way,
as I see now, I have to run through the complete registry :-(

Have you seen this?

http://www.foxitsoftware.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=269

At the bottom there is a file which removes all registry keys.

I am also having some problems with foxit while reading PDF:s from internet
explorer. Sometimes the file just won't open, only a blank screen is displayed.
If I save the file to hard disk and open it from there, it will mostly display
fine. This might be a problem with ie though since I'm using ie 7, beta 3.
Anybody noticed the same with foxit?

It doesn't seem to be that different from other programs. It seems to only
do three things to the system: 1- it creates a FoxitReader.Document class,
2- associates that class with .pdf files and the MIME application/pdf type
and 3- adds some configurations to the registry.

#1 is the only thing that a typical uninstaller would get rid of that needs
meddling with the registry.

#2 you can easily revert. (I'm surprised though that Acrobat Reader doesn't
seem to provide an option to re-associate itself with PDFs. But probably a
repair install does the trick.)

#3 is, as far as I can see, not more than what other programs leave behind
/after/ you ran the uninstaller. Typically, the uninstaller doesn't remove
anything that was created or modified after the installation, so any
registry-stored setting that has been altered by a user action is usually
left behind and has to be deleted manually if you want to get rid of it.


FWIW, Resplendence Registrar http://www.resplendence.com/registrar is quite
helpful in dealing with the registry. They have a free light version.
