How do I remove an entry from Add/Remove please

  Meshuga 08:00 30 Oct 2006

I have removed Preventon Personal firewall from my pc but the entry in add/remove is still there. I have run start-search and that says nothing found. I have run regscrub and crapcleaner and that had no effect. All that happens when I click on remove in add/remove is a message saying Error-3 patch package. Any ideas how I can get rid of it please. My os is xp home sp2.

Two ways which used to clear something like this for me in an earlier life.

Reinstall the application first! Then try and uninstall using add/remove.

Do a search in regedit and delete everything that appears with preventon.

Because it seems to be firewall software, it would be wise to do all this offline and with any firewall disabled.

Before you try and delete it again,You must make sure it is not already running.If it is in your Quick start, Click on it ,and press Exit,Then go to your Add Rmove and Delete,
