Remove Item In "Add/Remove Programs"
« on: March 26, 2009, 09:43:10 PM »
I'm trying to remove an item in "Add/Remove Programs". When I click "remove" it says that such-and-such file cannot be found. Normally it would ask me if I would like to remove the entry from the "Add/Remove Programs" list, but this item doesn't do that. So I go to delete the item from "Program Files" and check back to see if it asks me to remove the entry. Nope; doesn't ask. I do have "Windows Installer Clean Up" installed, but the program I'm trying to remove is not listed. So how can I remove the item from "Add/Remove Programs"? FYI the app is "SatScape", and I'm running XP Pro.
Kind Regards,

Download MyUninstaller by Nirsoft (43kb) http://www.nirsoft.n.../utils/myuninst.html
It's faster than Add/Remove programs, and it has the feature you need.

any mention of MyUninstaller must be complemented by Safarp. :) another option is Revo Uninstaller, which i haven't tried..

I'm using Revo Uninstaller and I am satisfied with it. It's plus is that when you uninstall a program, you can tell it to scan the HDD and the registry and to remove the files/registry entries that belonged to that program but were not removed.
