I have removed a number of programs from the system but they still show on the Programs List (From the Start Button)
Does anyone know how to remove the dead programs from the Start List please

Right click Start, select properties, put dot in Start menu, click Customise, Set Zero in number of programmes on start menu, click Clear List.

They are only shortcuts. Just rightclick on them and choose Delete.

(You can check that they are shortcuts by rightclicking on them and choosing Properties)

I would also install Ccleaner to remove remnants in the machine.
