Hi, I recently un-installed a game from my computer. But the entry/name of the game is still within the Add or Remove Programs. I was wondering if there was a way to get rid of it or is there something wrong with it like spyware or a virus?

Thanks in Advance!

If your comfortable using the registry thats probably the best way.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

From there, just click on each one and see what program comes up. When the one you want gone is there, just delete it.

Good luck.

Try this, Download CCleaner <-- Click there

Click on the Registry Icon and scan for issues.

I believe that should remove the entry from add/remove.

Good luck,

Mike
