In add and remove I have program Dan Elwells speed test which I want to remove but it says I can`t as it doesn`t exist. I have run a search and it says nothing found. How can I remove the entry in add and remove please. OS is XPhome.

Have you tried the Ccleaner uninstaller click here

Hi skidzy, I do run ccleaner regularly. When you say cc uninstaller do you mean that there is a specific function in cc or is there only the normal "Run cleaner"

Open Ccleaner > Tools > look for the program you would like to uninstall,click on it...uninstall or run uninstaller

skidzy, after my last post I found what you referred to and ran uninstall but got the same reply ie cannot uninstall as it doesnt exist.

You may have some redundant registry paths left over from uninstalling,i would also suggest you run click here
Just click on your nearest location,download and run.You may already have this on your system.This is how i would try to remove the program first.

Do you have a shortcut on your desktop relating to the program,if so delete it.
This sounds like you may have previously deleted the program but it did not delete all the files.
If you have the program on disc,reload it then uninstall again and reboot.
One thing to mention,not all programs come with an uninstaller.

Go to Start\Run type Regedit after opening, go Edit in the Menu in the Find box type Dan Elwells press enter delete and confirm, then press F3 to search for next until you get to the end. Close Regedit when you get the done box, the above search should always be done by first clicking on the root My Computer Icon at the top before starting search so you get all

Thank you VoG, I assume you mean download the complete program and then uninstall. Will try that.
