RAM Disk refuses to install: how to uninstall completely

Sometimes the RAM Disk refuses to install and complains about an older version installed. This means for some reason the automatic uninstaller was not able to remove everything. Here is how you can completely uninstall it:

  1. Remove the following registry keys:
    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\vvramd
    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SPVDPort
    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SPVVEngine
    
  2. Remove the following files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers directory:
    spvdbus.sys
    spvve.sys
    
  3. Delete the entire installation directory in %PROGRAMFILES%\SoftPerfect RAM Disk.
  4. Reboot.
