Issues uninstalling an old game program

Question: Issues uninstalling an old game program

Hello,

This could be the wrong place to post this, but I'll give it a try anyway. Unbelievably I just tried installing a (Pool) game that was most likely originally designed to be played on Windows 95 (from an old disc that my wife still has laying around the house). However, I am running Windows Vista on my laptop, and of course it did not work. I should have known that it wouldn't. Anyway, all I wanted to do afterward was uninstall the program (after it only partially installed it), but it wouldn't let me. Here is the error I received:

The log file ‘C:\Program Files\Intrplay\VPoolW\DeIsL1.isu’ is not valid or the data has been corrupted. Uninstallation will not continue.

Can someone please explain to me exactly how I can finish the uninstall process? That would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Ok, I posted this problem in a different section, but realized it was a broader problem. How do you remove a program if you deleted all the files but forgot to remove it with add/remove progams first? I did this, and now I can't remove it even though the files are all gone. I can't re-install it either because it is still reading that its installed. Hopefully this gains a response. I know this is a pain in the ***, but hopefully theres a way to do it. Thanks ahead of time.

Hello,

My computer is setup to use a 120gb SSD for my OS (Windows 7 ultimate 64bit) and a 2Tb hard drive for my program files, user folders etc. I use junction points to link the program files and user files from C:\ to D:\. This normally works like a charm however I recently updated iTunes and it deleted my C:\Program Files (x86) junction point and created a Program Files (x86) folder on the C:\ drive, this completely roots my system as all my Program Files (x86) are stored on my D:\ drive and now my computer can't find them since the junction point has been deleted. How can it do this and most importantly any reason as to why it's doing this? It's an easy fix on my end as all I have to do is put back in my windows installation disk boot from it and remake the junction point but it's a real pain to do it when it shouldn't happen in the first place.

Also after remaking the Junction point I decided to uninstall iTunes and it once again deleted my junction point while uninstalling.

(Note: My Program Files, and User, junction points have worked as normal and have not been deleted just my Program Files (x86) junction point. I am creating my junction points using the command mklink "C:\Program Files (x86)" "D:\Program Files (x86)" /J)

Does anyone have any ideas to why this is happening? Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Nairda.

I had installed a game on Windows 7 but have found I do not like it. I have tried to uninstall the game using the uninstall on the games cd, and the windows add/remove option. Both give me the same error, that I can not uninstall because "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation." My account is an administrator account, and I have not had any other issues with installing or uninstalling programs. Can someone help me?

I started to uninstall my Empire Earth 2 game so that i could install it again and use a different CD key that works with both online and offline playing, and My steam thing got in the way during the uninstallating and it said that there was still a empire earth 2 program running in steam. Then it closed out of the whole uninstallating process. By then all my start menu stuff for my game was gone and now when i put my CD in (which is now the only way to get it started), the box saying "play, about, website,exit" etc. pops up and i'll click play to see if i can't uninstall it again from the main menu, and the game never comes up. It exits out of the box and just does nothing. So i was wondering how can i make my game appear or if there is a way to completely uninstall it without having to open up the game.

Please help and thank you!
 

Answer:Need help with uninstalling a game.

Well if steam gets in the way exit it first and then try, if it tries to sign you in re-exit and take the internet cord out of the back of your comp. and uninstall it.

If your trying to uninstall it threw steam instead of control panel, then start task manager after it gives you that error message and see if you can find it.

(to start task manager rightclick on the bottom bar of your screen or press ctrl alt delete, keys all together and start it that way. After that go to processes and look for the name of it, and end the process.)

See if any of that helps.

After installing a PC game OK , I had problems getting started with playing - so much so that I gave up and uninstalled, using Add & Remove Programs.  Most of the program was cleared, but a message appeared: "Unable to delete folders ...." with a list of six folders which needed uninstalling manually.  There are various File Folders and Text Documents pertaining to the game listed in Program Files - do I  get rid of them by simply R clicking and "Delete"?I have Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.   Advice appreciated.

Answer:Trouble uninstalling game

this should be in "Operating Systems and Software"

anyway, press ctrl+alt+del and close all programs except for the ones neccesary for Windows to run
so if it's anything up to Windows ME, close all but explorer

if it's Windows 2000 or above, close everything except for 4 svchost's, explorer, services, winlogon, lsass, smss, csrss and spoolsv

then try and uninstall

if that fails, reboot to safe mode (press f8 before the windows loading screen comes up and select safe mode) then when windows loads try and uninstall it there

As I've had a couple of weird errors while trying to play Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament2004 online I decided to uninstall them from the persona they'd been installed on ( you know how XP lets you create different persona's under Documents and Settings etc), and reinstall them under the persona I use for connecting to the net.It made sense to me anyhow.The uninstall of UT went fine, the procedure letting me uninstall a host of mods and voice packs at the same time. With just a little user file tidying up to be done afterwards.However UT04 occupying a hefty 5Gb of drive just doesn't want to go.Everytime I try and run the uninstall procedure (either using it's own pull down menu, running setup from the disk, or even trying Remove Programs under XP) I get the same removal options that I had under UT, including the option to remove the UT mods I've already wiped from the drive, but no option to remove Ut2004!I've also tried Uninstall programs like CCleaner and Easy Uninstaller but they all seem to work by bringing up UT04's own uninstaller which seems to have become confused/corrupted by the uninstaller for UT (which is the game I've already uninstalled).Tis a tad confusing I know. Anyone know how I can safetly take this off the drive (before reinstalling it).Or should I maybe try installing it back over itself in the hope that the uninstaller will write itself correctly?Any other ideas?

Is there a way to uninstall a game but save the files of the game so if you wanted to reinstall it you can leave off where you left off last?

Any help would be great.

Answer:Uninstalling games but saving the game files.

Depends on the game and where their game saves are stored. Some games that use Games For Windows Live on PC require some extra files to be backed up (Like GTA 4...I am unable to use my old game saves because they didn't get backed up right on GFWL).

They could be under your Documents folder in My Games, My Game Saves, or in the AppData folder; just depends on the game.

If you wanna test it after you back up your data, install the game on another computer, copy the saves over, and see if you can at least load up the save, and then uninstall it from that PC.

I try to use CCleaner but same pops out cannot be uninstall doesn't exist. I also try Revo Uninstaller but cannot uninstall the only thing that Revo Uninstaller do is to clean the files that the game made.

Now after the Revo Uninstaller clean/delete the files created by game I try to Uninstall Using Revo Uninstaller this pops out cannot be uninstall doesn't exist while in CCLeaner this pops out "Error 2 - The system cannot find the file specified"

Later I uninstall Revo Uninstaller

hello, i have a logitech G15 gaming keyboard, and the day before yesterday, i uninstalled a few things, like .net framework 1, i didnt think i needed it, also i uninstalled the game i play for a bit called MapleStory.

the next morning i started the computer to find that my keyboard key didnt work, i tried to fix it by plugging into another usb port, no success, after that i tried to try it on my other older computer, that has no usb (had to use a adapter) and the keyboard wasnt working with that either, i assumed it didn't work with adapters.

anyways, i got an old keboard (non usb), and turned off the computer, pluged it in, and it worked, i tried to find info on the logitech website and no sucess.

after all of that, i did a system restore, and low and behold, the logitech keyboard worked.

today i didnt uninstall the MapleStory, i just went into the program file, and deleted it that way, turned off the computer, and same problem accrued again, i did the system restore, and im using the keyboard now..

Whenever I tried to uninstall PowerPoint Presenter Professional Suit 2007, a message will appear:

What should I do to uninstall it? :confused
 

Answer:Uninstalling a Program

This is a permission issue with the log file required by the uninstall.exe file.
Locate and copy the "install.log" file to your desktop (log file location may vary, depends upon your application uninstall.exe shortcut) Then delete the "install.log" file from the original location. Now run the "uninstall.exe" and this should prompt you for the "install.log" file location. Point it to the file now on your desktop.

This should now allow you to uninstall the program.

Hello,
I've been using Windows Vista for years and now have a PC running Windows 8 (.1 or. 2) (is there a 2?)

I'm trying to uninstall a program file (dll) in my program files 86 folder but it says I can't while it's running in windows.
I watched an online video which tells me to open the command prompt but his method doesn't work on my PC.

Can anyone give me instructions on how to get rid of this dll or tell me how to open my windows command prompt so I can try the videos method?

Cheers!

Answer:Uninstalling a Program

One has to be careful with dll files in case they are shared. try renaming it first ProgramName.dll old-- and run your system awhile to see if you get any warnings first, especially at boot up. Then when no problems appear or crashes show up in Reliability History(in the Action Center) then you can unregister the dll.

Open an Admin command prompt by right clicking the windows icon and choose it.

For the path name you can use drag and drop in windows 8 by opening file explorer and dragging the dll to the command prompt after you type regsvr32 /u"
example: regsvr32 /u "C:\Windows\System32\amdmantle64.dll"(this is for an AMD ?graphics dll)
Don't forget quotes
Register dll file

To register a dll or ocx file, open a command prompt windows as an administrator, type the following and hit Enter:regsvr32 ?path & filename of dll or ocx?Unregister dll file

To un-register a dll or ocx file, open a command prompt windows as an administrator, type the following and hit Enter:regsvr32 /u ?path & filename of dll or ocx?This will register or unregister the dll file.

I don't see it uninstalling, but when I come back my computer can't locate the steam.exe and my steam folder is missing nearly all the files.

Now, when I was uninstalling steam, I did delete some "Steam" registry files but looking in my registry now, I can see those folders are back.

Hello rintobs and welcome to Seven Forums.

It appears that you have a free product called Express-Files on your computer. It's supposed to be a search tool with a built in download manager.

Express Files

The pop-up message you received wasn't attached to your post. I'm guessing it was something like "Do you really want to uninstall this?" A lot of programs try to convince people to keep their product installed and offer an "are you sure" message. If that's the mesage you get, I'd say it's OK to uninstall the program. Once you do, I'd also recommend you run a full antimalware scan just in case it's not what I think it is. You could also use Malwarebytes free as a secondary scan.

Hi

Having succesfully upgraded from XPSP2 to Vista RC1 on my laptop, I have discovered that my ISPs own AV program PCGuard (Blue Yonder) does not work with Vista.

I have tried uninstalling, although the uninstaller does not execute, stating that the programe requires Windows 98, Windows XP etc etc

I have tried removing from the startup items from Control Panel although the options here are greyed out.

Is there anyway I can remove this program to stop the "failed to initialise" messages each time I start my machine

thanks for any help

Hello everyone.  I have a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4427 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2), 32 bit, 4 gig ram, Intel T2250 processor (1.73 ghz) with a 110 gig HD.I noticed that my hard drive seemed rather full (only 35.8 gig free).  So I ran windows disk cleanup, I ran CCleaner and I ran Wise Disk Cleaner with only minimal success.  So I looked to see if there were any programs that I could remove (that I don't use).  In the add remove I came across "WeightWatchers On-The-Go", an old program of my wife's, and it said that it was 20.5 gigs.  So, after asking the better half (who didn't even remember the program), I tried to uninstall.  I then received this error:>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.CPP (468PAPP:Weight Watchers On-the-GoPVENDOR:WeightWatchers.com, Inc.(http://www.WeightWatchers.com)PGUID:[email protected]  Service Pack 2 (6002) IE 8.0.6001.18904with an OK button below.  When I click OK, I get this error from InstallShield Wizard:Please do the following:  -Close any running programs  -Empty your temporary folder  -Check your Internet connection (Internet-based Setups)Then try to run the Setup again.Error code:  -5001I've tried to run it in safe mode also, with no avail.  Any help would be appreciated[recovering disk space - old attachment deleted by admin]

Answer:Help uninstalling program

You can either reinstall and then uninstall it, try REVO Uninstaller, or just delete the folder manually (it won't uninstall it, but with a program like that it's no big deal - the files will be gone and the space will be free) and leave the program entries in the registry - no harm done.Also, either disable and then re-enable system restore (note - all restore points will be deleted immediately) or just disable it completely and start using disc imaging software on a regular basis. This will free up a lot of space.

Good day,
My laptop has been working fine for 6 months until my daughter used it. She installed a program called "I Give-Shopping_Window" which supposedly gives a percentage of things you purchase from stores on their site to a non-profit of your choice. Anyway, I've noticed a major sluggishness since this program has been on here.

I went to control panel and tried to uninstall and got an error message that said there may have been a problem uninstalling and gave me 2 options to choose: "Uninstall using recommended settings" and "This program uninstalled correctly." I chose the first option and it did nothing.

I then went to my C drive and found the folder. I clicked on it and hit delete and was if I really want to move it to the recycle bin and I said yes. Then a window pops up that tells me I need to confirm this operation. I hit continue, another window pops up that says "Windows needs your permission to continue" and I hit continue. THEN I get a window that says, "Destination folder access denied, you need permission to perform this action."

I went to the registry to try and delete it and it's no where to be found! I opened the task manager and lo and behold, it's listed as an actively running program. I clicked on it and hit "End Process" and it didn't do anything!

Basically here is the situation.
I have parental controls to prevent my son from playing games on the computer. There are a ton of games on the computer which it does block effectively. However there are also some programs that my son needs to use that are falsely classified as a game, and therefore blocked by the parental controls. How can I unclassify these programs so that they are not considered games by windows? Is there anyway to edit something in the program to unclassify it as a game?

Thanks!

Answer:how does windows 7 classify a program as a game? and how to unclassify a program?

Ok So, I have a program, this program is called Lord of the Rings Online - Roheryn. It is specifically a version of the video game client for the MMORPG Lord of the Rings Online (who would have guess huh?..). Now, "Roheryn" is a preview server were the game developers release content before it goes to the live (retail) servers. Since it's a preview server it requires it's own client to keep it seperate from the regular (retail) client.

Now, there was recently an update to the Roheryn client, and I need to UNINSTALL my current version before installing the new one (okay and?), I can't. Simple as that, I am faced with an error message when I click "Uninstall" from the Add/Remove Programs window. I get the same message when I try to use the games uninstall executive file.

Hi, I'm kinda new around here. Not 100% sure this belongs under hardware problems, since it isn't really hardware... Anyway, I new with windows Vista 64-bit and have been having problems with WoW. For certain reasons I needed to uninstall and reinstall it, and could not find it under uninstall programs. I reinstalled it and then found that it was then under uninstall programs (WoW), but it still didn't delete everything from the previous installation. My question is, how can I go about cleaning up all the remaining files scattered about? I'm sure there's still things left over in the registry, etc. Would a registry cleaning program do that or do I need to manually go into the registry and find the files (which I'm not sure I want to do...). Plus I'm sure there's other files that weren't just in the registry. It's not a huge deal, I guess, I just don't want any of the old files to cause a conflict when I'm reinstalling the game. I've already had plenty of errors >.< Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

often all you have to do is right click on the file in program files and simply select delete. If you download Ccleaner (google it) you can run the cleaner that comes with that which will often find all the loose bits of registry entries and files left over.

Hi Guys,

I'm really desperate on this!
I have previously opened a thread similar to this.

And I quote myself:

My computer started to loop after I installed an update of Alcohol120%. I have Vista business operating system loaded.

When I start up, the PC only stays on for a few seconds, hardly giving me time to do anything before it restarts. How can I uninstall the update, so that I can work on my PC again?

I have tried the F8 'solution' but safe mode and none of the other options have worked.

PLEASE HELP!!

end quote.

I really need help to uninstall the update version, but like I say, Windows Vista just doesn't give enough time to do so before it restarts and the whole process start all over again.

Also, it gives me a BSOD, but it happens so fast, I cant even read on it what it says before it restarts, just catch the words 'file dump' in the end each time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. ;-)

Answer:How do I keep users from uninstalling a program?

Set each user up wit his/her own login. You can then log into the PC as an admin and then go into the control panel and select USER ACCOUNTS and make sure that each user account except yours has restricted access.

Rollin

Can you give us an idea what the program is?

Do you happen to know what "installer type" was used to install and now uninstall?

I'm attempting to uninstall frostwire on an intel i3 M 380 thats running windows 7. Frostwire is a clone to the limewire program. Its currently running and trying to make me select a directory to save my files in, not the installation but where my downloaded files through frostwire are saved. I can't find the program running in my task manager as a process or an application. when I attempt to uninstall it through remove programs on the control panel it doesn't recognize frostwire as installed. I'm thinking that frostwire hasn't completed its installation and i don't have permission to select a directory to save files into or some thing of that nature. when i try to close it the program reports an error then re-opens and tries to make me select a directory again. even if i just click on the close button.

I'm not very fimilar with the windows 7 operating system. I run an older winows XP myself. this is my brother's computer he asked me to help him fix it haha.

Any help is very much apreciated thank you.

Answer:Difficulty uninstalling program

Try Your Uninstaller!, see if that program detects Frostwire and try uninstalling it..

Your Uninstaller! Pro - Uninstall any unwanted software/program completely.

I have a program in my computer that I do not want, called TuneUp Utilities 2014. It keeps popping up on my screen to tell me that TuneUp has stopped working. So annoying that I can't use my computer. When I go to 'Control', then 'progams to uninstall', then highlight TuneUp utilities 2014 to uninstall it, nothing happens. No messages come up, or anything. It doesn't uninstall. I have uninstalled programs before, but the process has stopped working. I have a Windows Vista. Can anyone offer any suggestions? Thanks.

How do I stop uninstalling a program?

Answer:stop uninstalling a program

When uninstalling a program there should be a cancel button in the pop-up Window. Clicking that should cancel the uninstall.

Do note though some programs do not have a cancel button and once you uninstall them you'll need to reinstall them.

If the program does uninstall you could still reinstall.

Hi Guys,
I'm totally stuck.
I loaded a program called Hallmark Card Maker with a feature called Event Reminder. So when I start up (boot ) my computer. Any birthdays in my family will come up when it comes close to the day. But when I got the new computer someone told me you can save all the birthdays from the old computer and load them into the new computer with Windows Explorer with a floppy. When I did it I made it so the program will not start up with error messages telling me some files were missing. So I made another mistake I think, I reloaded (reinstalled) the program, because I thought it would only reinstall the files that were missing . Now it works great, but I noticed I have a copy on C drive and a copy under Programs (were it belongs- under Programs) So I thought I would just uninstall it and reinstall it. So when I went to Add Remove Programs under Control Panel its not in the list ? so now I can't uninstall it ? So I thought I better stop before I just totally wreck my computer because if I just delete it under Windows Explorer, I heard you can really wreck your computer as programs should be uninstalled not deleted.
Totally Frustrated

I recently installed a 32 bit program, using compatibility mode, on my computer with a 64 bit version of Windows 7. Everything worked fine with the install but I have since acquired a 64 bit version of the same program and want to install it. The problem is, when I try to uninstall the 32 bit version (in ad/remove programs), the uninstaller/installer won't open. There is an error message that says "Windows can't run a 32 bit version of this program on a 64 bit operating system." How can I uninstall this properly? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Uninstalling a 32 bit program on 64 bit version of 7

Recently is the key word
Use system restore to remove it.
Go back 2 or 3 days before the install

Verify that the update package exists, and that you have access to it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows Installer update package.

I was browsing the internet and was going to install this one software, but noticed i clicked on the wrong button and AdvanceVirusRemover was installed. I looked on the control panal to uninstall it, didn't show up, so i went through and deleated all the files pertaining to the program. now, there is an icon on my tool bar that i can't click on and it blocks some of my stuff, like when i try opening a movie, saying the the "Application cannot be executed. The file is infected. Please activate your antivirus software." i ran a virus scan, got nothing. I even tried a full restore, since i just got this computer monday, and it was still there.

Any help on removing this program?

I have tried in vain to uninstall a trial version of a program and it has caused such a mess on my computer. First when I tried to uninstall it using the program's uninstaller I got the following error message:

"File C:\Program Files\DVD Cloner\unins000.dat does not exist. Cannot uninstall"

I went into the Control Panel's Programs and tried to uninstall it there and I got the same result. So I figured maybe if I download the latest version of the software it will fill in this missing file and then I would be able to uninstall it. Not such a good idea because now I have TWO versions on this BLEEPIN' program and BOTH throw the same error message when trying to uninstall. Now I have found an article that teaches how to manually uninstall it by deleting everything from the registry but the one I found is for XP. Does anybody know of one specifically for Vista or whether or not it even matters?

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

HEY EVERYONE

I HAVE DOWNLOADED AND INSTALLED A GAME 'COMBAT ARMS' WOKS GREAT, HOWEVER I AM UNABLE TO UNINSTALL IT, AS IT IS NOT LOCATED IN THE CONTROL PANEL TO UNINSTALL AND THE UNINSTALLER IS NOT IN THE COMBAT ARMS FOLDER IN THE C DRIVE. I HAVE DOWNLOADED 'MYUNINSTALLER' AND STILL THE PROGRAM IS NOT THERE TO UNINSTALL.

SO I HAVE INSTALLED THE PROGRAM AGAIN FROM THE SAME SETUP FILE AND INSATLLED IN THE SAME PLACE AS THE FIRST TIME I INSTALLED THE PROGRAM AND THIS TIME I AM ABLE TO UNINSTALL IT AS IT IS LOCATED IN THE CONTROL PANEL. I THEN UNINSTALLED THE PROGRAM AND RESTARTED THE COMPUTER AND RAN CCLEANER. NOW IT SEEMS TO BE UNINSTALLED. NO TRACES LETOTHER THEN AN EMPTY FOLDER IN THE C DRIVE.

MY INQUIRY IS:
1. WHY WASN'T I ABLE TO UNINSTALL IT IN THE FIRST PLACE?
2. IF SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN OCCURS WHAT SHOULD I DO?
3. THE APPROACH I HAVE TAKEN BY INSTALLING THE SAME PROGRAM AGAIN WITHOUT UNINSTALLING IT IN THE FIRST PLACE, IS THIS A CORRECT THING TO DO?
DOES THIS ANY HAVE REPERCUSSIONS ON THE COMPUTER?
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I MUST DO? OR IS EVERYTHING FINE?

THESE QUESTIONS ARE FOR ME TO LEARN FROM AND KEEPING MY COMPUTER IN TOP PERFORMANCE, AS I DON'T WHAT SIGNIFICANT TRACES OF THIS GAME LURKING AROUND, SLOWING MY COMPUTER DOWN.

CHEERS
 

Answer:Uninstalling program not in control panel

Looks like you hit the nail on the head: If a program is missing an uninstall protocol the best thing to do is try reinstalling it. You got "lucky" (although in my experience, there is no such thing as luck ). And CCleaner is a good one for removing little traces left in the Registry.

I have zero idea why there was no uninstall in the first place. Welcome to the world of computers.

If it happens again and the reinstall trick doesn't work, I'd just go ahead and remove the program files and run CCleaner. The registry cleaner should be able to identify which items still have valid references to the program files.

I want to reinstall Norton Systemworks 2002. I need to do this after having had a virus, eliminated it, and reinstalled Windows.

However I cannot do it without uninstalling Norton Antivirus first. The Systemworks setup program tells me this.

Problem is that, when I go to Control Panel Uninstall/Change, neither the Norton Systemworks or Antivirus icons are in there.

When I look for them in Search they are all there but I don't know how to get them into the Uninstall Window. I cannot drag an icon into it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Len
 

Answer:Uninstalling - Hidden Program Icon in Xp

I found my own answer in the AntiVirus Help File. Here it is for any of you in a similar situation (That new virulent [email protected] virus disables Norton Systemworks but they have a downloadable removal tool):

To uninstall Norton AntiVirus

Once you begin uninstalling Norton AntiVirus, you will not be able to access this help information. You should print out these instructions before beginning the uninstall.
Note: During uninstall, Windows may indicate that it is installing software. This is a general Microsoft installer message and can be disregarded.

1 On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Programs > Norton AntiVirus > Uninstall Norton AntiVirus.

2 Click Remove to confirm that you want to uninstall the product.

3 Click Next.

4 If you have files in Quarantine, you are asked if you want to delete them. Select one of the following:

Yes. Deletes the Quarantined files from your computer.
No. Leaves the Quarantined files on your computer, but they are inaccessible. To repair or submit the files to Symantec for analysis, reinstall Norton AntiVirus.

5 Click Finish.

6 Click Yes to restart your computer.

7 If you have no other Symantec products on your computer, you should also uninstall LiveUpdate and LiveReg.

To uninstall LiveReg and LiveUpdate

1 Do one of the following:

On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
On the Windows XP taskbar, click Start > Control Panel.

2 In the Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Prog... Read more
