So I have a feeling this question is going to be one of those ones with an obvious answer that I am missing. I cannot uninstall because the option no longer appears. I select Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs......the list populates and looks accurate...the program names and usage are listed, but no option to change or delete, even when I highlight a program.

Any ideas what is going on?

http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/0...emove-programs/, scroll down to "If the above registry hack..." and just click on the script provided by Kelly Theriot. Run that, in lieu of the edits outlined.

The script itself is an easier way of doing the registry edits. As such, any anticipated change to the registry should be preceded by a user backup of same, no matter how safe the registry edit may be.

A good tool for backing up your registry is ERUNT Registry Backup Tool - http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html.
