    I mangaed to install NCH software by mistake and can't get rid of it. The Contol Panel Add/Remove programme says it clears it out by but it hasn't. Searching the web about NCH software indicates that this stuff hooks into the computer and it is very hard to remove. There are no unistallers in the C:\ProgramFile/NCH directory.

    I am running XP. I had thought of pulling up the DOS screen and trying to use that. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Advice: DO NOT install anything from NCH.

    Thanks for that. I found some other junk that I could clean out but this NCH software does not come up on the Revo dialogue box. The path is C;|Prgogram files\NCH Software\Computer\NCH toolbars\Conduit\Conduit Installer (an application). The NCH toolkbar always comes up when browsing. This software arrived when I was browsing something else and I must have hit the wrong button or some damn thing. Looking through the web NCH has a very bad reputation for infiltrating computers and it is very very sticky. Don't touch anything labelled NCH!

    Have just visited command.com and used it to to see if I can remove the directory. C:\Program Files\remdir NCH Software comes uo "the sytem cannot fiond the the file specified' . In other words this software is masking itself somehow from anytrhing I know about removing directories. In C:\Program Files\dir the screen shows NCH Software is definitely there.
