Cab File not showing up to Uninstall

Sorry for the noob question. I have searched but did find anything exactly like this. How can I uninstall a .cab file that does not show up under ‘remove programs’? I’m really hoping that the answer is not a hard reset, which will result in a two plus hour drive to my carrier for reprogramming which I had to do 3 days ago… Thanks!

Re: Cab File not showing up to Uninstall

Hard resets should not require a trip to the carrier store...

With that said, what is the application? Does it have an uninstall built into it?

Re: Cab File not showing up to Uninstall

Thank you for the response. The cab file is lllboredlll VZW GPS fix. The reason a hard reset will require a trip to the carrier is this; I'm on a Verizon Touch Pro with a stock ROM running on a very small carrier (Golden State) with no OTA features/abilities. The hard reset wipes some of the settings in EPST that I can not get back OTA. I inadvertently installed this cab and did not need it with the most recent Verizon ROM with the external GPS unlocked.

Re: Cab File not showing up to Uninstall

Oh... Interesting. Learn something new every day. I'm on Sprint, and have done many hard resets... Never thought twice about it.

Well in that case, I'd say you may have to resort to some third party tool. There are several that aid in removing applications, but since I don't really use any of 'em I can't really make a good recommendation.

Have you tried just running the cab again? I thought it would offer to uninstall if it's already installed... Sorry I didn't mention that earlier.

Re: Cab File not showing up to Uninstall

Thank you again. I appreciate the response. I have tried launching the cab file again to see if there is an 'uninstall' option but no luck. I have tried SK Tools but the cab file does not appear in that 'remove' list either. Any additional suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
