Can't uninstall Mozy Home or re-install, also Windows Explorer is corrupted

I see that this has been queried before, but the solution seems to be that of a custom solution sent to the user. I have a 32-bit machine running Windows 7. My computer is now a mess---can you please help??

Re: Can't uninstall Mozy Home or re-install, also Windows Explorer is corrupted

@MERTENSIA1276  If you are receiving a Windows Explorer error message, you will need to resolve that before you can re-install MozyHome.  If you come into chat or create a case from your account on the support page, we can send you a custom uninstaller for your computer.  I recommend ensuring all required Windows updates are installed.  If you are receiving the C++ Runtime Library error, you will need to ensure the C++ 2008 Redistributable Package and C++ 2010 Redistributable Package are installed.  If you have WIN10, there is also a C++ 2012 Redistributable Package.

I see that you have a case open with support and you were sent the Mozyhome custom uninstaller.  Were you able to run the custom uninstaller?  Follow up with  the case that's open and let us know if that worked for you.

 

Thank  you,

You need to run the custom uninstaller from the link that was given to you in Mozy chats.

 

I have sent you a privet message with the same link that was given to you when you were on a chat with a Mozy support agent. 

 

Thank you,

Re: Can't uninstall Mozy Home or re-install, also Windows Explorer is corrupted

AngelinaS's reply NOT correct.  The C++ errors he is seeing from Explorer do not need to be addressed first - they are actually being caused by the corrupted Mozy install.  It is Mozy's context-sensitive menus in Explorer which are causing the C++ errors.  Disabling the Mozy context sensitive menus in explorer will fix the explorer errors he is seeing, until he gets Mozy uninstalled/reinstalled.  Nirsoft has a program called shexview that makes it easy to do this.
