Not sure, but you can try your desk folder and program files. Delete from there???? Create a restore point and go to registry,remember unless you absolutely know what you are doing,you can have one expensive paper weight.

How to work with regedit



Because it is on your system. try this:

Click on start>run> type in the box REGEDIT

Highlight My Computer then select Edit>find - type (name of program) in the box - click find next - it will search for (program) elements. Keep pressing find next after each event until it gives the all clear.

Read each entry found carefully. If U are sure U no longer want it right click & delete it.

ALTHOUGH A FAIRLY SIMPLE ACTION IF U ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE REGISTRY U ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO BACK IT UP BEFORE TINKERING OR POST BACK WHAT U FIND FOR MORE ADVICE BEFORE DELETION.

Maybe, you can use Secunia to help you find it:
To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow there guidelines using the
ADVANCED interface:
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
* Click on the + sign of the programme to “expand’ it.
* Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected file.

Have U changed the folder option to show all hidden files?

Have U tried Windows search asking it to search hidden files?

I'm not saying puget1's action won't work but the enclosed link is another way to uninstall program-the 3rd post from bottom of this enclosed link does exactly as you need: http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/197...

Edit: this process is for Windoze XP systems-not for Vista
Edit2: this link provides info for Win Vista uninstallation-very last post in the thread http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/203...
