Hello,

I had certain online poker sites on my computer but have uninstalled them through the control panel, uninstall a program, method.

However, when I go into my manage add-ons sub-screen in Internet Explorer, the add-ons for these poker sites still remain.

Does anyone know how to remove these add-ons?


thanks.

Using Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\ProgramFiles\ or C:\Program Data\
See if there are any folders with the name of the add-on. If so, delete that specific folder.

None of the add-ons are in either of those folders. This seems awfully complicated for something I should just be able to remove - do I need to use command prompt? And if so, what am i to type?

In IE7 go to the Tools menu, then to "Manage Add-Ons", then to Add or Delete AddOns.
