I uninstalled a game (Lego Star Wars 2, which had uninstall issues, apparently) and even though the game is completely off my computer, I'm having trouble getting rid of the game that shows up on my change/remove applications control panel. I went into regedit and deleted the uninstall keys containing the game. I don't know how, but it created a duplicate of the game on the change/remove control panel. I was able to get rid of the original one, but now am having trouble trying to delete the duplicated one. There's not even a change/remove button for it. It's not a big deal, but I'd like to get rid of it.

Thanks!

To simply delete entries in the Add or Remove Programs utility download and run the app called the MS Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

Note that this is *not* a app uninstaller, just a list Add/Remove entry remover.
