Another question for you. I've found in removing and reinstalling programs from MS's Add & Remove to try to solve program problems that I end up with ever increasing MB measurements in Add & Remove for these programs. In particular four of SBC Yahoo's programs, Their Anti Spy, Their DSL Activation, their Extras and their Install Manager. Now I contacted SBC Yahhoo about it and they said that Add & Remove removes the programs from the registry but not from the hard drive. They said that defragmenting would solve the problem. I don't know how many times I've defragemented before and after hearing this from SBC Yahoo. But it doesn't get rid of the extra MBs on MS's Add & Remove Panel. So my question for all you wonderful home spun experts is obviously:
How do you get rid of the extra MBs from MS's Add & Remove? If there are extra copies on the hard drive I'd rather not have them there. How would you get rid of the extra copies on the hard drive as well!!! That should get rid of them from Add & Remove, no? Please enlighten me revered experts!!!
Also another tantalizing tidbit for the can't get away from self proclaimed computer expert problem solver in us. My system keeps throwing up the "error 'framedyn.dll' is missing and therefore can not start this program, reinstalling the program may solve this problem" for a number of programs and then it goes ahead and starts the program anyhow. I have reinstalled some of these programs but with the no change. The same error continues to pop up.
It's kind of annoying for this to keep happening. Anyone have an idea on how to deal with this? I'd appreciate you're input. Thank you.
