    Does anyone know why I can't seem to completely remove Corel Suite 11 from my computer? I have gone to the control panel but it does not remove it completely. I also tried going back to the CD but there was no "uninstall" selection.
    Thank you.

    What doesn't it uninstall? Sometimes the uninstaller will leave the folder, some small files or logs behind. Those are usually ok to just delete. Post back with what's left after the uninstall.

    Thanks for your post. After I have uninstalled Corel through the control panel there is still a small symbol, something like a "setup" emblem. And when I'm doing something like a "search" for something totally unrelated, a window pops up and shows the Corel trying to load. Then it says something like "cannot find file please insert CD" If I press cancel, it comes right back.

    Check the Start Menu and make sure the Corel listing is gone. If not, delete it. Do a search on your drive for corel and find what's left. You may have to clean up the regisistry to get rid of everything.
