I was looking through my add/remove programs and seen these:
Blackhawk Striker
Blasterball 2
Bounce Symphony
Are these games that have been downloaded? The say something about Compaq, which is the brand of my computer. Are these stored on my hard-drive and can I remove them? Thanks.

If they are on the list they can be removed.

"Blasterball 2" is a yahoo game. It seems like they were downloaded maybe a demo?

Try looking at your Start>Programs and see if they're listed there somewhere. You may have to look for Games, Compaq or similar listings to find them.

They could be Compaq installed games. Do a search on their site and see if it tells you something. Also do a search engine search for those names and see what comes up.

If you go to the Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, they may/should be listed there. If they are, then yes, you should be able to uninstall them.
