After testing PSPPX3 on a virtual machine, I noticed that PSPPX3 doesn't use Installshield any longer. I now changed my instructions again.
For all who still followed the old instructions, as I wrote to JRosenfeld, deleting folders inside the Installshield Installation Information folder will not damage any installation or other system parts.
Before you remove and install a program, patch or update, you have to log in as administrator. The only way to get full administrator access on Vista/Windows 7 is by turning off the User Account Control and right-click on a program, patch or update and go to "Run as Administrator". Otherwise, you will have problems working properly on your system.
Vista: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... -on-or-off
Windows 7: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/Wind ... -on-or-off
Before you uninstall a program, please check whether you have installed the program as a user or an administrator.
You will not find some parts of the program, if you are logged in as an user, but you installed the software with your administrator
1. Download the Clean up Utility in order to remove PSP X3 from here:

Every program leaves keys in the Registry which need to be removed. Before you work in the registry, please make a backup copy by export
the Registry first. If you make a mistake, then you can import the registry again.
Attention: If you have several Corel programs on your machine, please make sure that you carry out all the following instructions only
for the program that you wish to remove.
Go to Start – Run and type “regedit” and press “Enter”.
If you work with Vista/Windows 7, type “regedit” in the Search box and press “Enter”.
Open the following keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ and delete the folder "Corel"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ and delete the folder "Ulead Systems" or
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ulead Systems\ and delete the folder "Corel PaintShop Photo Pro"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ and delete the folder "Corel"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ and delete the folder Ulead Systems or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Ulead Systems\ and delete the folder "Corel PaintShop Photo Pro"
Please note that Windows 7 64bit puts the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE keys for 32bit Software into a special folder called, Wow6432Node".
Close the Registry
6. Launch the computer as administrator and disable antivirus software. Now, install PSP X3 again.
Before installing, disable the Firewall and Antivirus software!
