Hi All,
I have serious problem of Vista BSOD. Can I restore Vista to old date from Ubuntu. I am logging into the laptop using Live Ubuntu CD.
Also could someone tell me if I can uninstall a Windows installed program (like Oracle)from Ubuntu?

Any help is much appreciated.

thanks in advance for your kind help
Kal

as far as i know the best you can do is delete the files in the program preventing it from starting cleaning the registry will be tricky if not impossible
i dont think you can do a proper uninstall

This will not be easy, and I don't know of any tools made for it.

The easiest thing will be to backup your data from the live CD and reinstall Vista.

i dont think u can... as previously said i think the best solution is to backup ur files from the live cd, format and then just do a fresh install...

Than you all for the replies. Just out of interest, is it possible to write a little program in Ubuntu/ any unix flavour OS , to uninstall Windows installed programs or atleat UNIX commands in a batch file? By the way, is it possible to do UNIX shell programming in Ubuntu? Thanks again.

This one would require a lot of programming. A tool called chntpw might help (chntpw is mainly known as a password cracker, but it also has a registry editor).

If you mean bash, then yes, of course. It's a unix-like OS, afterall.
