I got this used computer with XP on it. I tried to uninstall some games to gain more disk space. I tried uninstalling with Add/Remove Pro and Ccleaner, but some just won't uninstall. Windows will not do it either. So I was wondering if I can just delete the folders that they are in? Some folders are as much as 2.5 GB. Other than not being able to play the games, could there be some other problem?

No, not if they install with entries in the registry. You can use Revo Uninstaller - it should do the job

Thanks so very much for your quick reply Forum Addict. I'll try the revouninstaller. It took me this long to reply because I had a hard time to find my post.

Thanks for the tip Allan. I knew there used to be a link to show my posts but I just couldn't readily see it. Now I know.
