Unable to Unistall Forticlient 5.2

We use Forticlient for VPN services here in our corporation. We recently upgraded our

Fortigate software and had to upgrade the Forticlient software.  I have one machine that

will not let me unistall the software.  It is version


When I attempt a repair it says it cannot find the source file for repair. When I attempt

to unistall the software it eventually says "The specified account already exists" and then

it rolls back the unistall.


Any advice will be appreciated.

Microsoft tool resolved the issue and removed the program.

Have you tried  FortiClient remover (FCRemover.exe)? 


Download FortiClientTools from Fortinet Service & Support, and you will find the program in folder "SupportUtils". 


According to Fortinet "FCRemove.exe is a clean up tool for use __only_if__ the Add/Remove Programs applet fails to remove FortiClient." I have used it successfully a few times.
