Stop deleted prog trying to re install again and a

I have had a programme which is deleted now, trying to re install in the hardware wizard every time the pc is switched on. It tries 3 times in every boot up before it stops (by me cancelling it)

in what way did you delete it add/remove or it's own uninstaller?

What program is it ?

the prog was one the loaded but wasn't needed so the cd it was removed by Add/remove but still tried to install. The I searched everywhere for the files belonging to it in the MS Search. But it still loaded!
I cant fint anywhere to get any idea of how to stop - even if it means finding somewhere in the registry?

The programme was for a LCD monitor to use along with a friends laptop. But it hat extra software settings which were not needed so we took them off. The monitor is not going to be used so all was taken back to original - well almost!

you still have not said what the program was, you may have to re install and uninstall via it's own uninstaller.

if xp try system restore to pre install?

The actual prog was for Philips SmartManage software with the drivers for the Philips LCD.When the installer has tried to re install I tried to carry on the task so it searches and doesn't locate the files needed from the disc - so it stops responding!
I can't uninstall or can I re install.

xp yes but the restore won't help either

Hope it catches something
