Problems with app search

    Scannow showed no corrupted or missing files?

    Could have been after an update. Try rolling it back to a previous date?

    Please fill out your system specs in your forum control panel.

    No nothing seemed to work so I just did a system restore. It's all good now.

    Btw, i'm having another problem and rather than start another thread I'm hoping I can maybe get it answered here...

    I want to completely uninstall 'SRS premium sound' as I think it's tainting my audio, i.e. causing too much low end rumble. It appears in the app search, but I can't open it. It doesn't even appear in the control panel, 'playback devices', or the add/remove program box. Is there any other way I can remove it?
