I had installed Adobe soundbooth some time back.

After the term expired, I had uninstalled it. Immidiatly after that I had to do a system restore for some reason, and the soundbooth came back!!!!

Now I just can not uninstall it. It is asking me to reinstall the application and I will not do so.

Is there any way I can uninstall it. It is taking a lot of spaces in my hard drive.

There are couple of other stubbern programmes which will not get unistalled through Add or remove programme, and I want to remove those also.

I just do not want to delete the files from the C:Programme file I need to completly uninstall and remove the registry entries.

My system is

Win XP SP2, 250 GB HDD, Core 2 Duo 6300, 2GB RAM, Nvidia 7900 GS 512 MB.

If those programs use Windows Installer to install, then you can try using Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 1.0.
And I think you can restore your system restore by restoring it before the system restore.

You could always try Uninstall Plus! It is a program that is available on a trial basis HERE. I use it regularly and like it. Not only will it start a specific program's uninstaller, but then it will search the registry for any traces of the deleted program.

I wen't through the same problem with Adobe CS2 you can manually uninstall the program following this Tutorial. After uninstalling the program if it still resides in the add/remove utility and its not in the uninstall registry directory you can use the Windows uninstaller utility to remove it from the add/remove .

Thanks guys for your support.

I did download uninstall plus and have removed the Adobe Sound booth. However one registry entry is still remaining and the programme is appearing in the "add and remove programmes" section.

The uninstall plus does not detect the adobe sound booth any more. I guess I can live with it.

I do not want to mess up the registry anyway trying to delete a perticular entry.

Hi Manoj-p. You don't need to mess with the Registry. Use the Windows uninstaller utility.
