If you are trying to open the file from your list of most recently files on the File menu, make sure that the file has not been renamed, moved or deleted".

More information

For your information, the per-user setting in the Windows Registry of which add-ins are have active is unfortunately something that - by Windows design - is something that a program cannot access/change during the uninstall. During the uninstall all files on the computer are removed, but we can only remove ASAP Utilities automatically from the add-ins list for the user that runs the uninstall.
