    Can't uninstall Windows Powershell 1.0

    I have a HP pavilion laptop which came preinstalled with Windows Xp and am trying to upgrade it with Windows Vista by using the HP upgrade dvds. When I was using the Vista upgrade advisor, then it told me to remove the Windows Powershell 1.0 before going ahead. So, when I was trying to remove it from the Add and Remove programs then window reports that windows powershell cannot be removed. I have tried to search for some solutions for this problem but I cant find anywhere. Any solutions?

    Can you try to change the indicated registry value to 0 so that it will not think that it is already installed and then reinstall the Windows PowerShell. After that restart the computer and then retry to uninstall the Powershell.

    1. Click Start, in the Start Search box, type appwiz.cpl, and then press ENTER.
    2. In the list of tasks, click View Installed Updates.

    Even I have fixed this issue bu just renaming the Windows Powershell 1.0 folder in my Programs files and then delete the registry keys that was associated with it, which was something /Software/Microsoft/Powershell, although some did not get delete and then I changed the Install value to 0 and after that when I tried to do the upgrade then there was no issuse anymore of Windows Powershell.
