Enable the removal of programs in safe mode

Safe mode, by default does not enable, or have a service running to allow the windows installer to run.  To combat this and allow us to uninstall programs in safe mode is easy enough. We usually do this when we’re unable to remove McAfee products.

Enter safe mode on your computer

Open an elevated command promt and type the following command:

REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"

Press Enter and then type:

Net start MSIServer

Press Enter again.

There you have it, you can now uninstall programs in safe mode.
