Manually delete the folders, and then remove their registry keys from the registry. Only touch the registry if you know what your doing. Let me know how it works out.

Yes, that is what I decided to do. I removed some of the registry entries (when I could clearly identify the application), but I am betting I have left some muddy footprints there.

Any file associations that I missed will get overwritten by another application, if they are ones that I use.

Many thank for your reply. :tazz:

Reinstall the game(s) and then remove them. You will then be able to delete them in one click from add/remove programs.
