Dell Photostage

I recently purchased an antivirus software instead of using the free versions. Whenever, I try to run a full system it always gets hung up on Dell Photostage, it freezes and then the blue screen appears stating my computer has crashes and will restart. I've tried uninstalling Dell Photostage under Control panel Windows Installer starts the installation then it stalls and again my laptop crashes. So, I tried downloading ArcSoft's Installer Remover Tool, again same issue, it stalls and my laptop crashes. Instead of uninstalling I tried to repair Photostage but the same result. I was advised to try to uninstall in safe mode however my Windows Installer will not run in same mode even when I choose the with networking option.

I don't use the Dell Photostage application so it would be useful to uninstall it to free up space and to successfully run a full system scan, I'm not a computer whiz so if anyone can help and keep it in laymans terms that would be great

You can remove the Photostage program by this method:


Additionally, you will need to remove some instances in the Registry either manually or with CCleaner
