The Add/Remove tool on my Windows Vista does not remove some programs and I downloaded Perfect Uninstaller and ran the program only to find out you have to buy it to use it, no free demos.
Is there anything free I can use to uninstall stubborn programs without having to go in and mess with the registry??
Programs that I cannot get rid of include:
Nero 9 Trial
Belkin USB Adapter (tried to go wireless long ago and it didnt work. it didnt install correctly and it wont uninstall correctly)
Well there is an easy way of doing this that requires no software and little hassle. Go into “my computer”, click “C Drive”, then “Program Files”. Here you will find many folders named after software that you can use on your computer. Here you should be able to find the folder containing the software for the program you are looking for. If you don’t find it here go back to the C drive and search the name of the program (search may be under the file tab depending on how you have your tool bars set up). Now that you have found the folder for the program, delete it. this will remove the files of the program that are used for running it. What will likely be left is a shortcut on your desktop, delete this also, and probabaly a space in the start menu for it. If you cannot simply delete it from the start menu you can go into control panel, click on start menu, and choose to remove it from there. After you have done all of this the items you have deleted will be in the recycling bin, empty it out and you’re rid of the program.
