    Post add/remove programs menu

    I recently uninstalled a program using the programs own uninstall facility.The program was removed entirely (no shared files!)or so I thought until I looked in add/remove programs in control panel.The program was still listed and selecting it to 'remove' resulted in a message that roughly said,'listen stupid this program don't exist.'I apologised profusely to my PC for being such a numpty.So can you super-geeks out there tell me how to remove the entry from add/remove programs?A good New Year to all and don't eat yellow snow!

    The Windows PowerToy TweakUI has the capability to remove Add/Remove program listings. I don't know what operating system your using, and I don't know if TweakUI is compatible with it. Us poor old NT4 users get confused with all this Windows SE, ME, HEHE stuff

    Just post what Windows version you're using and I'm sure someone will be able to help out.

    Another approach would be to re-install the software and use Control Panel Add/Remove Programs to uninstall.
