I tried iobit uninstaller and unfortunately, it did not work. It did get rid of cs2010_22.exe, though. So the above solution will not work! I am sorry I am making this so difficult. Is there any way to get rid of VC and ED via the registry? The only MF items I have on my machine are the ones we're trying to get rid of and if there are more I don't use them. The only other thing is the VC 2.3 installer.
