    Ok, so I'm hitting IMVU pretty decently but somehow they have 'Banned my Computer', that isn't possible so obviously some files that they get you to install hang around and check if you're trying to login even though you're using different ips etc.

    So what I'm asking is how do I get rid of all the files? Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it's still picking up on it!

    Please help! :D

    Very unfamiliar with IMVU but I do see a lot of people recommend http://www.revouninstaller.com/ to completely remove software.

    Hopefully that will help.

    You took the words right off my keyboard. I use revo all the time and it
    completely uninstalls any trace of installed software.

    This is the one I also recommend.

    Yeah tried that but it's not removing the files unless I register. Is there a free version or something? Possibly a crack available? :p

    If Revo is not enough you can try regseeker.It's a program that remove the registry key unuseful.This kind of programs have to use carefully but work fine.I solved a similar problem with it.Remember to make a backup before proceed to delete unuseful voices for evenience

    There's a free revo version available. It does a very good job.

    You can download it from a file sharing site. It's on Demonoid and Piratebay.

    I am not surprised when so many people already suggested revo, I was just going to suggest it.

    Anyway, try system restore to a most recent time, prior to that particular software installation, as I know it's going to erase any hidden registry entries and what not.

    See if that works.

    You need to clean the registry. Everything that relates to the program, has to be uninstalled. Search for registry cleaner
