There are a few programs I want to remove and when I try to do it I get a message that the unistall file cannot be found. Is there a way to delete these programs? I thought I read about an application that would delete stuff like this, but I can't find it now. :tazz:

A lot of disk cleaning tools delete the unistall strings, which is why you're having the problem I suspect.

While you could manually delete these files, the very best way to deal with this situation is to reinstall the program and then use the uninstall routine (the reinstall will recreate the uninstall string.
