How to uninstall a "phantom" program
I want to uninstall DivX Plus media player but it doesn't show up on the Windows Programs list nor does it appear in the programs list of Revo Uninstaller. It has been installed in the Program Data>DivX folder. Can I just delete DivX file?

Was the player part of the DivX Plus Codec Pack? If so, you may have to uninstall the whole pack...

You may have to go to the site to uninstall where you downloaded it from...i hate those ones that dont show up for a basic uninstall. id go to their site and search for uninstall info, not just delete folder, there are probably other files that also need deleting

Thanks, Phantom010...I don't have a clue. It most probably on the computer when purchased new.

Look inside "Programs and Features" or Revo Uninstaller for the Codec pack.

The K-Lite Codec Pack doesn't include the DivX Plus media player, so other than that, I don't see anything else in the list. Perhaps somebody can spot something I have overlooked?
