Hi, had help from aguy called buddy with my last problem. Very good advice - it worked.

This time I downloaded a program some time back, and would now like to remove it.

Going to the control panel and clicking on the add remove icon - no problem. selecting the the unwanted program OK

Am I sure I want to remove it ----Yes

Alert - some files are used by other processes, please close and try again. Same thing happens.

eventually a message will show saying ---fatal error during installation.

This program keeps tring to show-- slowing down the computer boot up.

Any way I can disable it or better still remove it

Cheers and thanks --great site

Try uninstalling from safe mode.

Reboot into Safe Mode by continuously tapping the F8 key as soon as the computer begins to boot. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Have you tried removing it in safe mode?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
