As my son moves onto newer games, old games are eventually uninstalled. Clicking into the 'add/remove' I see these old games still there, but there is no 'remove/uninstall' button to click onto.
Re-install the game, I'm told, then uninstall again. This I have done, but venturing back to the 'Control Panel' into 'Add Remove' programs, There they still are, with no way of removing them. The games 'have' actually uninstalled, but not the titles.
I've right clicked the hard drive to explore it, eventually found these old games titles still there, they wont even delete. Some message comes up stating 'Sorry for the inconvenience' and do I want to report it to 'Windows'.
OS is xphome sp2! 160gb hd, 1024ram etc.
ps! system restore is my, often used 'mending programn', when things go wrong. It's been used many times on this 3 yr old machine. In my opinion it might (like me) be getting a bit confused. I'm just guessing of course, but simple guidance would be appreciated. Please dont mention 'registry things', because thats a path I refuse to go down.
Knikerbene, tried your suggestion but it didn't work. The old game doesn't show in the 'add-remove pro 2.08 list. But when I open my control panel, into 'add remove', there sits this old game (command & conquerer generals) refusing to bugde.
With respect VoG™ your link to 'jv16 power tools' is a programne far beyond my understanding. After downloading it, dear oh me, I didn't know where to start, over half my registry was ok to remove according to this programme.
In fact the old game (mentioned earlier) had a red dot, indicating it was not safe to remove.
my lack of computer knowledge has once again shown itself, so I must decline your advice this time. jv16 is probably a very good programme, but I know my limits. Do appreciate your response though, thanks.
