Hi,
If I understand that the program is gone, but it's still listed in
Add/remove, try this free program Add/Remove Pro from
http://pricelesswarehome.org/acf/programs/0032-PW.php or
http://www.goodfiles.com/viewapp.asp?app=micellaneous_applications/addremove_pro.xml

To manually remove the entry via a registry edit, go to
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_a.htm and scroll down to "Add and Remove"

Hope this helps,
Don

Thanks Don.....went to kellys-korner...bookmarked it....But didn't help.
Went into regedit....and looked for name it's not there, but when I go to
Control Panel , and to Add/Remove, it's still listed. Obviously, it's gone,
but still the listing bothers me...why won't it go away ?

If it is listed in Add/Remove then it should be listed in the Registry
under the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Did you look at all entries under that key?

Alan...yes, searched them all...it's NOT listed

Don...downloaded that Add/Remove Pro...installed it and was then able to
remove listing. I have a question about that program....The "Finder" shows
something
as "non-Existent" even though its an active program on my computer.....also
"Backup" does not record the ones I removed...so can't restore them if
need-be...

Anyhow, thanks for helping me...Irish
