add/remove program

  [DELETED] 11:30 18 Oct 2003

i have manually uninstalled some programs from my hard drive, so when i go into add/remove programs and try to uninstall them it says it can't find the uninstaller(cos i have already uninstalled them). How do i get rid of the program name from add/remove programs.
i'm running xp pro

sad u have to use the regedit to edit the registry and thats the only way u can get rid of it now my advice is to always use add and remove.
But u probally no that now
