VS2010 Ultimate - corrupt. Need to uninstall completely for reinstall.


  • I'm having difficulties with my VS2010 Ultimate installation lately.  Please let me try to explan.

    Initial symptoms:

    • Noticed WPFFontCache_v0400.exe service utilizing 100% CPU
    • Followed instructions in this thread to disable
    • Rebooted, tried to launch VS2010... noticed devenv.exe utilizing 100% CPU and would not get past splash screen

    I have attempted to remove VS2010 for fresh install.  The following screenshots reflect what I'm seeing.

    Even after I walk thru the dialogs and uninstall VS2010, when I attempt to reinstall I see the same distorted characters on the install dialogs.  When I attempt to launch VS2010 after reinstall, the initial symptoms persist again.

    Please advise how to resolve this issue.

    Thanks, in advance, for your help!
