right hey again geekstogo, this aint a big problem i dont think but it's just annoyin, basically i had pirates of the carribean installed, i tried removing the game from add/remove programs, the uninstallation came up and finished but did'nt uninstall the game, same with the game setup, so i just deleted everything i could find to do with the game, but it still shows up in add/remove programs, there is also a program called slide witch i also had problems uninstalling so i deleted the files aswell, this also shows up in add/remove programs, as i said i dont think this is a big problem, just annoys me and i would like to get rid of them if there is anyway to do so, cheers, any help is appreciated.

This is a typical problem with some programs. Our friends at Microsoft have a procedure for removing entries from the Add/Remove Programs list. I assume you have XP.

This procedure messes with the registry so understand how to make a backup and restore it before attempting this procedure.

How to remove invalid entries from Add/Remove Programs list.

Good Luck.

You could also try the MSI cleanup utility. I have instructions listed here. I used Itunes as an example, but just replaced that with the program you want to remove.

alright thanks for your time blaster and starjax, first i downloaded the MSI cleanup utility, but the programs i was wanting to remove did'nt show up, secondly i used the Regedit.exe option, i managed to remove pirates of the carribean from the add/remove programs, but unfortunatly i was unable to find slide, but thanks again, this will come in handy for future problems, thanks alot, Dean.
