Problems with uninstaller: be careful!

Review by doclee
about Avidemux and Adobe Premiere Pro Jun 2011

I tried this programme which came up on a Google search for a free alternative to Adobe Premiere Pro. However it is not an alternative, its range being essentially cut and paste.

The big problem became apparent only after I uninstalled Avidemux. I then became subject to error messages relating to the "SmartSound Quicktracks" plugin and I presume that the uninstall programme is the cause. The problem appears with all sorts of programmes - my genealogy programme, a directory printer etc., none of which have any use for "SmartSound Quicktracks" and all of which worked perfectly well beforehand. Interestingly, I use 2 operating systems, XP (32-bit) and XP Pro (64-bit) and it is with the 64-bit O.S. that the problem arises!

So, be careful!!
