Hi frankwolftown!

I will need a little more information before I can help you. I need to know the name of the program you are trying to uninstall and aniy error messages you are receiving (if any) when you try to uninstall the program. I also would like to know how you are going about 'deleting' the program. Are you going to ADD & REMOVE PROGRAMS in the control panel?

The Folder is my Palm One program. I delted the files in it but the folder won't go. The program isn't in the add/remove list. I have tried to get some programs that will delete it but it's not on there. I use the program for my treo 650 now I can't Hot Sync. Can you help?

I've deleted some this way. Boot up in safe mode. Find the folder, select and delete everything in it. Then delete the folder too. Then create a new folder with the same name but put a period after it.
Then reboot, go look and see if it's empty. Lastly, I chance the properties on it so that it is hidden. Then it's out of sight and out of mind. Hope this helps.
