I'm having trouble deleting a program called 'Sage'. With the add/remove programs icon I click uninstall and nothing happens. If I find the folder in the C drive and click delete it says that I may prevent other programs from working by deleting it. Is there another way to uninstall/delete?

Thanks

If it is sage.exe it appears to be part of MS Plus! and would be better to remove plus.

But you could manually

I don't think I have MS Plus. Is there a way that it can be deleted individually. It says some programs may not work if this program is deleted, is this likely to be the case?

If you are sure it is not connected/bundled with something else, then shoot it via explorer. You'll have some stray registry entries, but no biggie. Make sure you don't have it in startup .

open regedit (start run).
Find this path: Hkey_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and delete it manually.
