I used the Add/Remove Programs to uninstall several programs and they were and are, no longer showing in the Control Panel listing. I obviously thought they had been successfully removed. Whilst trying to find something else on my PC, using Start, right-click Explore etc, I found these same programs still listed. Can I just delete them again from this list and will they be gone for good then? And do you know why they are still listed at all if theoretically they are already uninstalled?
If you check the files in the Start, All Programs you will probably find the programs are gone and what is left behind is the leftovers, such as the main title of the program, the programs themselves should be gone but the headings may still be there. I use Ccleaner as one of the things it can do is remove these leftovers.
By the way, I found that there was much more than headings listed! One had program had 13.192 KB and another 4KB so they hadn't uninstalled at all for some reason. Not in the Add/Remove Progs., just still there.
