Deselect Features to Uninstall? Huh?

Posted on: May 11, 2008

Gizmo Director Shouldn’t it be “Select features you would like to remove” instead? 

I have installed hundreds of programs through-out my entire life and whenever I try to uninstall a program I usually select what I want to remove and not the other way around.

The uninstall process should always be consistent so that we don’t end up confusing the end user. I believe displaying a message like the one shown on the left from Gizmo Director is somewhat confusing and is definitely a bad UI.
