    Hi,

    When I access the add/remove programs list, I have a couple of programs that are strange.

    Firstly I have a Top Gear screen saver that is displayed as taking up 35Gb. Obviously it doesn't, whatsmore I think it's off my system.

    Secondly, I have Adobe Creative Web which displays 4.5Gb. This is more or less unistalled (settings remain) so 4.5Gb is wrong.

    The question is: How can I get rid of these two programs as clicking on remove will not do anything?

    Thanks guys!

    Ed

    If you cant remove them i suggest you download ccleaner. The url is http://www.ccleaner.com then download it.. then open it and click the tool bar and you can remove them. the sceensaver sounds like a virus so if you dont need it remove it thanks!

    Any questions? Just post back or email me or add if u have msn/hotmail.
