    Hello Friends!

    How do you remove a program from "add remove"? I wish to remove a program called netropa. It shows up in add remove but the only option I can find is "install". Is there a way to remove unwanted programs other than the add remove feature? I use ME.

    Thanks in advance, Tom

    This is from their site

    Select Settings/Control Panel from the Windows Start menu. Click on the Add/Remove Programs icon in the Windows control panel. Scroll down to Netropa Internet Receiver and double-click on it to uninstall.

    NOTE: If you installed Internet Receiver in conjuction with certain versions of multimedia keyboard software, you may not find Netropa Internet Receiver in the Add/Remove Programs list. In this particular case, you must instead uninstall your multimedia keyboard software and then re-install it with the Netropa Internet Receiver checkbox un-checked.

    If that doesn't work you should be able to go to start/run/type msconfig and press enter, go to the startup tab, fine the line that loads the program and uncheck it. Hopefully next time you boot up it won't load
