I was on the Nintendo website running a test to see if I could use a wireless usb adaptor they are selling for the wii console. & well to run the online test you had to run this active x installer thing that internet explorer obviously blocked (as usual). Well I choose to install it just to run the test. I want to know how I can delete the program now that my test is done. I mean I dont know if its a program that installs to your pc, or just some virtual thing. But I cant find it in my add+remove programs area. What do I have to do? or is this already gone since I closed my browser?

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, disc clean up, it scans to see what it can clean then shows a box, downloaded programme files should be highlighted, click view files, find the one you want to remove, left click it, right click, click remove, confirm

In IE, click "tools" then "Manage add-ons" and you can select what you want to keep or dump.
