On my control panel there is an AvantGo Connect icon - I can not remove it by add and remove programs nor will it delete with the delete key - any suggestions on how I can remove/delete.

Thanks.

Go to Start/Find/Files or Folders.

Type *.cpl in the 'named' box (don't forget the *. )

All files found with the *.cpl extension will be Control Panel applets, and it won't be too hard to indentify the one you want removed.

Good luck,

Hi Stuart,

But if it's in Control Panel, it must be a *.cpl file, or it wouldn't be there.

Here are some common *.cpl panel files

Rule them out, and see what's left. It must be somewhere:

Common Control Panel files
File name Function

Access.cpl Accessibility options

Appwiz.cpl Add/remove programs

Desk.cpl Display properties

FindFast.cpl FindFast (MS-Office)

Inetcpl.cpl Internet properties

Intl.cpl Regional properties

Joy.cpl Joystick properties

Main.cpl Mouse properties

Mlcfg32.cpl MS-Exchange services

Mmsys.cpl Multimedia properties

Modem.cpl Modem properties

Netcpl.cpl Network properties

Obdccp32.cpl 32-bit ODBC

Password.cpl Password properties

Sysdm.cpl System properties/

add hardware

Themes.cpl Plus! Desktop themes

TimeDate.cpl Date/time properties

Cheers,

Nice list Tony. To test if you have the correct file just rename the .CPL file.

i.e., .CPX

Then open the Control Panel, if it is the wrong one just rename it back to the old name. The Control Panel must be closed and re-opened each time, so it is refreshed.
