    I have a Ghost Recon app showing up in my add/remove list but do not have the game on my pc anymore.. I have removed all registry entries for Ghost Recon or Red Storm.. how can I get it out of the list?

    Use TweakUI from Msoft Powertoys, or Tweak XP to remove entries only.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Uninstall

    Did you check the registry key suggested by TwoZig? It must be there. Maybe the subkey doesn't have the name of the program but one of these long numbers like {7C6D8763-EEB7-433E-A75E-2AB44892FCA2}.
    You can also click the entry in add/remove, you should then be noticed that the program isn't installed and asked whether you want to remove the entry. Doesn't always work this way, but worth a try.
