I installed mass download about a year ago but only used it once or twice, I decided to uninstall it today but when I try to uninstall it my pc reboot it self before the program uninstalls.

I tried downloading the new version and uninstalling it but the pc still reboots.

I’ve started the PC in safe mode but still can’t uninstall the program.

Anyone got any ideas how I can uninstall Mass-Download ?

I’m running windows xp pro with service pack 1
IE 6.0.2800

Remove the MD-Directory, start REGEDIT.EXE. Delete the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Metaproducts\Mass Downloader

(not the whole HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Key! ;-) )

It`s not the easiest way, but in your case the only one.

The latest versions of Mass Downloader uninstalls very well.
Please download the recent build from: http://www.metaproducts.com/download/mdsetup.exe,
install it. Please reboot Windows if the installer asks for this.

To uninstall Mass Downloader please use its program groups Uninstall shortcut or the Control Panel "Add or remove programs" dialog (look for "MetaProducts Mass Downloader" item.)
