    I had this program because when I was taking some courses in college, I was required to have this program on my computer to complete assignments online. However, I am no longer needing this program and I am having a very difficult time removing every bit of this software off.

    I'm just curious why Visual Studio seems to be difficult to remove from the computer? Is there a reason behind that, or is it just one of those software's that are a pain to remove?

    Any suggestions on how to get it to be removed completely without running into problems? I did start to remove some of it, however I've ran into a bump in the middle of removing it.

    I don't know. I have tried to use programs that are supposed to remove programs completely off your PC like revo uninstaller, but I was very confused. I was hoping there was a way around not having to install something like revo uninstaller. I was hoping there was something kind of like what norton had, a uninstaller for their particular software and anything that is tied to it or whatever.

    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, but trust me I've been there and done that already. But there are still traces of it on my computer like in my Start menu and what not. It's strange, very frustrating too.

    That's why I came here, to see if there was some one else who ran into the same issues as I am right now with this program.

    Then you need to post these "Traces" that you are concerned about.
    If these are "SQL" entries they may be also related to somethings else.

    I believe those are it. Those are what I see in my add/remove program list. However, the first two you see I can't remove because it says it's no longer on the computer, however still shows up in the list. The other one I haven't done yet. But I just figured there was another way to make sure it was all removed, and the How to remove visual studio 2005 instructions you gave me are very confusing.

    What I am wondering is if I take and put in the CD I got if it'll give me the option to have the program removed. Hmm.

    That is if I can find it. Grr!

    Solved by reformatting my computer to fresh install.
