Uninstall utility ?

  SB23 16:17 15 Jun 2006

I have a number of programs that do not seem to have an uninstall with them, and are not in the add/remove list. Although not a major concern, I was wondering if there is something that will do that job for me, or is it a case of locating the files with a search, and then deleting them that way?

I usually right-click and delete the file from C/programmes and then run a registry cleaner such as Regseeker to clear up any remaining debris. This may not work too well for games (although I have not had a problem so far) that tend to have bits all over the shop but 'ordinary' programmes seem to suffer no side-effects and I have done this for years.

Some of them won't delete, what do you do then?

Thank you VoG™, that's the program I read about on the forum before. Thought I had responded to that thread, but for some reason I can't access my posts.( Slow connection today)
Am I right to assume you unlock, and this allows you to delete the files?

Yes, that's right.

Thanks both, will tick as resolved
