Hi there i am cleaning up my computer and getting rid of files i dont need and came across a game demo i installed around 6 months ago and have tried to remove it from the add/remove section and i am getting an error of"An installation support file could not be installed the system cannot find the file specified"I have been to the search section and typed in my game title and deleted it from there and also been in to programs and been to a file folder that was in there and deleted it from there also. But its stuck in add/remove.I am wondering if anyone knows how to delete it from the add and remove section.Regards Grassy

PERFECT,all done. Thanks a heap. First time i have ever seen this program, it works real good. Nothing like getting in to your registry to getting to the root of the problem. You wouldnt believe what it was listed under, no wonder i couldnt find it. The program recognized it straight away and was there in front of me. It worked great. I dont know much about this program but its worth learning how to use it properly as it saves so much time and fussing around. Definately going to buy this one.:thumbup2: All the same if you dont know your files you can easily get into a lot of bother with this sort of thing, but i'm not complaining as i got rid of the darn thing. Thanks again bro and kind regards Grassy :thumbsup:

No problems - :)

It is always nice to get the results posted back when something works.
Please be careful with the tool, and do not just delete stuff everywhere -

Regards -
