I was removing some programs and I noticed many listings for programs that are no longer on my computer. Some of these will give a "remove from list" message and will let you remove them from the list, but some will not. This isnt a terrible problem, but I would really like to know how to remove these that are cluttering up the list.

Thanks williac.

Start/Run/Regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Each program listed in Add/Remove Programs has a subkey listed here. Locate the correct subkey for the program in question and right click it, then select Delete. You may want to choose Export, first, to export the key to a REG file. The REG file can be re-imported if you find you made a mistake.
