I'm having an issue in the add / remove program section in the control panel. There is a game called Red faction guerilla that is cluttering up the list (yes I am a neat freak and like to keep my PC clean for some reason) and it is irritating knowing that it still has data in around my computer Iv tried uninstalling it but it gives me an InstallShield error 1628 and then it closes and does nothing. I have went into the registry keys and I could not find it listed its like it is non existent but still remains on my computer. Please please please help me remove this I have searched everywhere for help but have came to no solution other than the ones I have tried. Thanks :)

Try the Revo uninstaller - it is very good at getting rid of leftover fragments of programs. You can get it here :-

Glad the problem is sorted. The Revo uninstaller is a very useful tool.
