This is my first post here (other than my intro) so bear with me! :thumbsup:
I am using Windows XP and many of my programs will not uninstall.

When I try to run the unstallation, I get the following error mssg:

The file unins000-0.bin the file is missing from the intallation directory. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program.

I have not installed anything new as of late and I have not removed any files either, especially any .bin files.
I have checked several of the programs' folders, and they all still have an uninstall.exe file, but not the one listed above (is it supposed to be there?).

As this is happening for several of my programs, I am really hoping that obtaining another copy of the program for all of them is not the only option.

I have tried using Add/Remove programs, safe mode, and running the uninstall.exe directly from each folder.
I am aware that I could try to just remove the folder through explorer, but I would rather use an uninstaller to remove as much as possible as my hard drive is running low on space and I need to free up as much as possible.

I am not too too "tech" saavy but I am a pretty quick learner...I think LoL
I thank you in advance for your help!

I'm sorry am I not including some info that I should have, or....?
I'm noticing everyone else who has posted after me has gotten replies as I have not....just curious as I am a complete n00b LoL
