Ok, today I removed Hideaway 2.0 in the control panel / Programs and Features. I restarted the computer. I attempted to install 3.0.1..... It says it will not install because the driver removal is pending. Please restart. So I did. Again. and again and again. So I went into the Appdata folder - and used the %LOCALAPPDATA%\HideAway\app-3.0.1\resources\driver folder - ran the HideAwayDriverSetup.exe -u
And it errors. "unregisterDriver: (-1) Unknown error."
The driver is v1.0.0
I tried wiping the whole folder (fail). And installing as administrator (fail). I tried installing without my Comodo firewall (fail), Avast antivirus (fail) and both disabled (also fail).
I uninstalled everything to do with hideaway. And attempted to reinstall.... And still it gets back to the same error -
"HideAway Driver setup cannot continue because a restart from a previous uninstallation or update is pending. Please restart your computer."
Pressing OK gives error box: Driver install failed, code: 350 Command failed: "C:\Users\MyUserName\Appdata\Local\HideAway\app-3.0.1\resour...\HideAwayDriverSetup.exe" --install
I'm kind of running out of ideas
Got anything I can try?

Hello, just in case this thread still interests anyone, I tried the solution that worked for Tayrad and it did not work for me. After several shots in other directions I came across this https://support.symantec.com/en_US/arti ... 98292.html which showed that there may be more than just one "session manager" key in the registry, and that any "PendingFileRenameOperations" entry in each one must be removed. I found 3 in my registry, removed them and then HideAway 3.5 (in my case) installed quickly.
All the best!
