SafeMSI lets you install and remove apps in Safe Mode
Thankfully, I stumbled across a handy little application which solves this problem easily. It's called SafeMSI, and it's beautifully simple. Download the app, slap it on your USB flash drive (it's totally portable) and run it on a system that you've booted into safe mode. Within seconds, you'll see the window above. On my bench, SafeMSI worked on XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
You may have heard about SafeMSI before -- it's an oldie but a goodie, and well worth sharing. Here's hoping some of you can put this to good use on your friends and family members' systems!
