    I have a program in add remove that I would like to remove but, can't. The message I get is -The system can't find the file- I removed the program some time ago but, can't get it out of add remove.

    Thanks Bug

    SOFTWARE
    MICROSOFT

    Ok thanks to MTBIRD-DEL-BRIRDLE for the help will try tweak ui tomorrow. Used to use AskMe.com until they shut down. I like this place a lot more. Just downloaded pop-up stopper which I found while looking around this site.

    Thanks Bug :D

    Ok brindle TweakUI removed it from add remove. Just downloaded TweakUI today. It looks like I could get into trouble in there. Would this help remove something from active desktop-background where you select a background from? Could this make a repair in Microsoft Word?

    Thanks again
