Can I clean my Add/Remove?

I am new to this forum group. I'm hoping you all can help me.

Is there any way to remove the name of a program from the Add/Remove list that is no longer on your computer?

Also, I have been trying to uninstall NetZero from my computer, and every time I try (through Add/Remove, Norton System Works, etc.), I get a message telling me I must be logged on as administrator, or have administrative privelages. This is a home computer, and the user that I am always logged on as, has full admin priveleges. I have tried logging on as admin, but it makes no difference.

I have ran spybot S&D, AdAware SE Personal, & Norton Virus Scan, all with the latest updates, so I know (or at least am pretty sure .... I think) it hasn't anything to do with spyware, adware, or a virus. So what could it be?

Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated.

Thank you, :tazz:

Hi BabyG! Welcome to G2G!

You can manually remove programs from the add/remove progrmas list by editting the registry. Make sure you read everything VERY CAREFULLY when you take a look at this link.
