Cleaning Add/Remove Programs Window

By heckfire ·
After installing software from my computer, I am still finding the reference to the software in the Add/Remove Programs Window. I have searched the registry to locate this window, but have not been successful. I have used Registry Cleaning software,but I am still unable to remove these orphaned references.

Does anyone know how to remove the unwanted orphans from the Add/Remove Programs Window in Windows 2000?

Thanks, Heckfire

Hi Heckfire;
I'm not sure which reg cleaner you are using but here is a link to the one I have which will allow you to remove the orphaned files from Add/remove program window. Its freeware and does not add any adware or banners. http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/shtml/software.shtml
hope this helps
