how do I get a black screen

Recommended Posts

I just uninstalled Incredimail  and the instructions on how to get rid of all files after the uninstall are reboot and then enter C:\program files\incredimail.  Then delete the folder.   I forgot how to get to the black screen to enter this.

Not sure what "black screen" you are talking about ?? Are you referring to "Command Prompt" ??

Gotchya ! That is now the Command Prompt !! You may have to make yourself the Admin. to make any changes but you may already be ??

One of the quickest ways to launch the Command Prompt, in any modern version of Windows, is to use the Run window. A fast way to launch this window is to press the Win + R keys on your keyboard. Then, type cmd or cmd.exe and press Enter or click/tap OK.

Chuck.  thanks, I did get to the small black screen and typed the command on the directions shown below. .  It keeps saying comand not recognized .

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.  

  1. Click the Windows 'Start' menu, then click 'Control Panel'.
  2. Click 'Add or Remove Programs'.
  3. Select 'IncrediMail'.
  4. Click 'Remove'.
  5. Once the uninstall is complete, restart your computer.
  6. Go to C:\Program Files\IncrediMail.
  7. Delete the 'bin' folder to completely remove IncrediMail from your computer.

You prob are not set as Admin ....... In the (black screen) elevated command prompt, copy and paste the command below, press Enter, this should set you as Admin ! Watch the Spaces below especially after Administrator and before the /active:yes !!

Then try your Steps above !!

Ok try this when you get back & have fun !!

Step

Log in to your account from the Windows 7 main Welcome screen.

Step

Click "Start | Control Panel | User Accounts | User Accounts | Manage User Accounts."

Step

Type your current password or provide confirmation if prompted by the User Account Control dialog.

Step

Note your account type under the Group column, shown on the same row as your Windows user name. If the account type is marked as "Administrator," your account already has administrative privileges and you do not need to use the built-in, default account.

Yes.  I read some info on deleting Incredimail and it states that after you delete the program a file in the system will not delete. it's there if you change your mind and reinstall Incredimail.  It contains all of your contacts and all emails. Iit's really not a big deal to delete it, so I could just leave it there if I would choose to reinstall the program.   I think of all of the email programs available, this one is the simplest one to use. The only reason I got rid of it is because it was a 3rd party with Verizon.  when Verizon dropped the email service, I had nothing but trouble getting it to work with AOL.  I now use gmail as my primary email.
