I am told in the febuary issue that I can remove unwanted left overs from the add/remove programs using Tweak UI but I have hit a blank I have windows XP and have wanted to remove the name of a program I uninstalled called Communicate-32 from the installed section but never have been able to it will not go with the usual uninstall commands.
Under Win ME you just fire up TweakUI and click on the Add/Remove tab. Highlight the name to remove and click on Remove. It does tell you that removing any name doesn't uninstall the program, just removes its name from the Install/Uninstall list. I presume it's the same for XP? LC.
I have tried cuddles suggestion unfortunately a while a go I deleted manually every entry in the registry for Communicate-32 by hand and the search as drawn a blank I may install it again and try again to uninstall it using cuddles advice it was a fax program from Elsa now defunct I believe and came with a modem on a disc.
What is the name of the actual thing you are trying to get rid of? I have often come up with a nothing found in regedit but have then redefined search and come up with entries. Presumeably you have tried deleting from START>FIND>FILES OR FOLDERS, IF THIS SHOWS AN ENTRY YOU WILL THEN KNOW WHERE TO DELETE FROM.
