Removing Programs listed in the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs SectionBy: Arie Slob
If you remove an installed program and its files by deleting the files, it may still be listed in the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. To remove it from the list:
- Start the Registry Editor
- Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Uninstall
- Delete the program entry here
- Close the Registry Editor and restart Windows
You can use TweakUI (you can find it on your CD-ROM in the \tools\reskit\powertoy folder) to clear the Add/Remove Programs section.
You can also use my Tweaking Toolbox for Windows, one of it's functions is to remove programs listed in the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs Section.
