Sims 2 Stuff Packs uninstallation.

Post by Keyenpeydee on Mon 06 Jun 2016, 08:13

I'm uninstalling Sims 2 now and I successfully uninstalled the EPs. Now, I'm trying to uninstall the stuff packs but it only says if I want to run the app then after that nothing pops up and it doesn't uninstall. So, how do I uninstall the stuff packs? thank you

Edit: Some of the stuff packs cannot be uninstalled these are: IKEA Home, Kitchen and Bath, Teen Style, Mansion and Garden, Double Deluxe. These are all stuff packs except double deluxe.

Edit2: It seems that the "UNINSTALL" application of them is unblocked. I clicked, Properties then at the below of Read only and Hidden there's this word saying unblock. 

Please don't delete this. it could help some people.

@Keyenpeydee, if you have the program "Your Uninstaller Pro" (also available from G4TW), then you could start it up and see if the missing Sims 2 games show up on the main window. If yes, click on a game, choose "Super Mode" and follow through. When done, do this with all the other Sims 2 games too, that show up in the program.

That said, you will generally want to avoid uninstalling anything in Windows OS, unless you are absolutely sure you want to get rid of it AND you also know how to properly uninstall.
