Vidalia Bundle Uninstaller Version Triggers Microsoft's Error Reporter!

When you uninstall the Vidalia Bundle, It misses the following files:
(Tested using: Piriform's CCleaner)


Temporary files:
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\~nsu.tmp

(Inside this folder is the Vidalia Bundle Uninstaller, the uninstaller should be stored locally not just in temporary storage!)

Registry Keys:

My Computer\HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run


If it's unistalled and tries to run at start-up it gives a Windows Error Reporting Message for Tor!

I didn't send the report, hoping you will fix this problem!
The report included my computer's system information (OS, ect...) and a copy of Tor at the time the error occurred (so they can see the state of it Ex: damaged, ect...). Though a dump file was not made.

If you are having this same problem and cannot wait for them to fix it follow the below instructions:
1.Click on the start menu, click run
2.At the prompt type: msconfig
3.Click the Startup Tab
4.In the startup items column look for Vidalia
5.Uncheck the box, click apply then OK
6.Restart your computer for the changes to take effect!

You can manually delete the file and registry key too!

For the registry key:
1.Click on the start menu, click run
2.At the prompt type: regedit
3.Before making ANY changes, Back-up (File, Export...)
4.Following the above address delete Vidalia's Value
DANGER: deleting the whole key will make your startup items invalid!!!

For the file:
1.Use the above address to delete the folder (the files inside will be deleted automatically!)
2.Using Window's Disk Cleaner would work also!!!

If you are having a problem similar to this, but it is not giving an Error Reporting message and you would like to make your own dump file and send it to Microsoft (see Attachments!) I have attached Dr. Watson a program made by Microsoft!

Microsoft can read dump files, so send it to them, then send the report to the Administrators of Tor / TorButton!

The current Administrators of Tor and Tor Button cannot read dump files!

I can't recreate your issues. When I uninstall the Vidalia bundle, it removes all entries after a reboot.

Is this still a problem?
