Uninstalling all trace of Chess Tiger, Gandalf etc. 

Sunday, October 24, 2010 8:13:00 PM

Sometimes it is desirable to make a new clean install. The standard uninstallers do not fully clean up everything. This article describes a method to completely remove all traces of Chess Tiger, Gandalf, rebel etc. 

Perform the following steps:

1. Use the various uninstallers, these can be accessed either from the start menu or through the control panels add/remove software.

2. Delete the directories where they were installed. usually under c:\Program Files\Lokasoft\... etc or for R11 and G5 c:\Program Files\Rebel\.... etc.

3. Search for files called "LCHSLASTGAME.GME" and delete these. They are used to remember the last game and are usually found in a temp directory.

4. Clean the registry. Only do this step if you are confident with the registry editor. Look for:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lokasoft\ChessPartner 5.0

Delete the entire ChessPartner 5.0 branch.

Do the same with:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Rebel\Gandalf 5 and possibly Rebel Tiger II

5. You may want to clean out possible entries left on the start menu.

6. Now do a reboot just to be sure.

7. Now you are ready to do a fresh install.
