I've been "trying" to get my old desktop PC (XP sp3) back from semi-permanent retirement to use as a spare.
In doing so I have been doing defrags (it has 2 hard drives), disk cleanups, disk check for errors etc. and I have encountered a problem... Some redundant programmes simply CANNOT be removed!
I have tried deleting them via:
Start > All programmes > "programme concerned" > uninstall - where this is an available option (no luck )
Start > Control panel > Add or Remove Programmes (still no luck )
With one I even just tried to delete the programme file manually, by locating the programme file and selecting "delete" (No, no, no ) A message apppeared not allowing this!
I've run out of ideas
ALL useful suggestions would be appreciated, the more simple to follow the better!
I'm not quite ready to tip a bucket of water over it just yet, but...
