Solved: Game will not uninstall
I downloaded a demo of PainKiller and it ran nicely, but now I noticed since I went to uninstall it....there is no uninstaller...and the game does not show on the program list of any uninstaller I try to use.
I tried using the computers "ad / remove" program but it is not there either.
I looked at Program Files folders and I see the folder of the game 'DreamCatcher' but it contains no self uninstaller.
Does anyone know how to get rid of this demo?
I run Windows XP.Home Edition.
Thank you.

Game should have provided an uninstaller. Install the game again over what is currently installed. See if it will then provide an uninstaller or show up in Add-Remove Programs. Also you can try Revo Uninstaller.

Well, even though you thanked the wrong poster, I'm still glad you successfully got the game uninstalled & also that you did not use Easy Cleaner.
