Hi all! Is there an area in the registry that has the programs that are displayed in add/delete programs are that I can access to delete from what is listed in the add/remove area? Deleting normally tells me they cant find the files. No uninstall program for these particular programs is available. I have done searches for the file names and the like, but no luck. These are programs that were installed without my consent from certain web sites. I think I deleted them as soon as they were put on, but I did not notice them listed in add/remove. Also, I have disabled install on demand, but some sites still install this stuff or shortcuts on my favorites menu. Any idea on other ways to prevent this too? BTW, I have win95 with a 200 and 64 ram using IE5.5 and a broadband conection. Thanks for the help as usual! Mike.

Hi,

Did you uninstall the applications you're talking about the correct way, in Add/Remove programs, or did you just 'delete' the folders?

Applications like TweakUI and RegCleaner enable you to remove just the mentions in Add/Remove.

On the other hand, if many of the program's files and reg keys remain , because it was removed incorrectly, this is at the most just a cosmetic improvement.

Good luck,
