Powershell Script to Help Find Windows Uninstall Strings

Uninstallstring, uninstallstring ? { $_ } thou uninstallstring

Sometimes it can be a pain to find uninstall strings, and they can often be in a lot of places. I haven’t found the WMI calls to be terribly accurate in all cases.

This script simply searches the following registry subkeys for a partial string.

HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstal

HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

HKCU:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

HKCU:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

You will still need search through the keys to find plausible uninstall strings.
