Uninstalling a 'ghost program'

  jack 15:33 26 Mar 2009

I have of late been having trouble with loading a trial version of the latest Paint Shop Pro
It downloads OK, It installs OK but will then when opened display the 'Time Expired' page
Corel seem to be stumped.
The installation process always demand that all existing programs be removed. This I Do.
Still the 'Out of time' page shows.
I tried installing another copy 'over' the 1st
This time I get 'Repair or Remove'
Select repair and get --'Out of Time'

In searching through the system to ensure no residual PSP files are causing this I came across in the Control panel/Add remove
Paint Shop Pro 10.
This programs was long ago removed but it still shows on the list, indicating that perhaps something lurking in the undergrowth.
Click on remove and the warning comes up that original disk is required to remove the program.
Herein lay the problem
I don't have that disk any more - I gave it away when I purchased PSP12.

So far a third party remover[CCleaner] will only instigate the - 'Insert Disk' panel.
Any Ideas any one
Is it the reason for the no load of trial?

maybe install it again if you can and remove it using Revo uninstaller.
