remove unwanted program

  wheel horse 14:36 19 Oct 2007

I loaded FaxTalk Communicator onto an XP machine. It didn't work but the computer is slower especially starting up, the problem is when I go to Control Panel - remove program - it stays there. How do I get rid of it? help!!

It has probably installed something that runs at startup. Right click in the task bar at the bottom of the screen, select Task Manager, look for a file called FAPIEXE.exe in the Processes list. Highlight it and click End Process, then try to uninstall from Add/Remove.

And `ftctrl32.exe` is another process to look for in Task Manager

You could also click start type msconfig in the run box and go to the startup tab and look for it in there and untick it then restart and uninstall it.
