Failed removal Nokia_Multimedia_Common_Components_2_5

I had a problem with my Ovi Suite, it wouldn't synchronize with my mobile anymore. So I removed it and reinstalled, but still it didn't work. Then I tried to delete all Nokia programs by using configuration-programs, however, one refuses to remove: Nokia_Multimedia_Common_Components_2_5. Now, this program always pops-up and asks to be installed...

 

I have removed all files connected to Nokia from my computer, but still it says the same: "There is already another version of this product installed. U can not proceed with the installation of this version. Use Configurationscreen-Programs to configurate or to remove the existing version of this product"

 

Does anybody knows how I can remove this file?

I am not sure whether this will work for you but please try it one.
1. Download and install NOS again
http://europe.nokia.com/support/download-software/nokia-ovi-suite
2. Uninstall Ovi Suite, PC Connectivity solution and Nokia Connectivity cable drivers from Add/remove program if anything is there.
3. Delete the files from here If anything is there
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Nokia\Ovi Suite
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Nokia
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\OviInstallerCache
4. Please search and download MSI clean up utility from microsoft website
Once installed please select the programs related to Nokia and click remove.
Restart Computer.
Then download from microsoft website and install Windows Installer, so that the installer is upto date.

this may sound stupid, but I tried installing that MSI clean up utility but then it gives me a fault: 800A0046, so that doesn't work...

For that error code this can solve your problem:

After that this should work"Go to Microsoft and download Microsoft Installer cleanup . Open it and find the nokia multimedia common components line and click remove"
