I installed Star Wars:KOTOR onto my computer, beat it, then wanted to get rid of it. So, I went to add/remove programs and "removed" it. Well, it did get removed from the computer but it's still listed in the add/remove spot and no matter how many times you click the change/remove button it does absolutely nothing. I'm pretty sure you can remove it in the registry, but I've tried searching for it and have come up with nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks

This is more of an annoyance than a problem, but I found this information:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...1&Product=winxp

But note that both versions require your making registry changes, so be very careful and make sure you have backed up the current version of the registry before making changes!

Regards,
John

Well....I can't find Star Wars or anything of the sort there...I even tried looking at each registry key in each folder to see if i could find the uninstall string but couldn't find one.
