To remove the invalid entries from the Add/Remove applet

1. Start > Run >> Regedit
2. Navigate to
3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
4. backup that keys by exporting them to a .reg file.
5. Look for the name of the program with the orphaned entry.
6. Delete the entire listing for the software with the orphaned entry.
7. Restart/Log off
