    I download the Medal of Honour AA demo from the tuvows site owned by blueyonder and installed it and now i want to remove it but it wont remove from ADD/REMOVE PROGS as a window appears asking if i want to remove,repair or modify just like some games on cd-rom do,but as it a downloaded demo i dont have a cd-rom.
    I have deleted all reg files and folders and same in safe mode but no luck,i even used the removal prog someone linked earlier on here.
    I cant even reinstall original overwriting and then removing as i get the same window as mentioned above.




    On another note has anyone else noticed that if you are using latest official 29.42 driver that a dvd is not watchable when you tick use hardware accellation in the power dvd config.
    Thats on three p.c's i have seen but unistall driver back to microsoft one and its thing.

    I guess if I read your post right that the box that comes up is the one that you see when you install the program. This box is the Windows Installer program box. If you want to uninstall a program, you would click 'Remove' in that program and it will uninstall it. When you select it in Add/Remove, all it is doing is calling Windows Installer so you can uninstall the program. And you should get that box when you try to reinstall.

    1. No need to shout (all caps = shouting).
    2. What happens when you hit the Remove button? A little more info on this will help me help you.

    If you want to remove it just go to "search" type in part of name, once all files are listed just edit/select all and delete. Then go into registry and delete any line having to do with Medal of Honor.

    I have tried all i can think of plus all you user ideas,i cant get it to remove from p.c even after searching and deleting then cleaning reg entry's it still listed in START/ALL PROGAMS and im getting the dreade system restore could not do any changes to your p.c.
    I used to know a programme or something that could do a forced unistall and remove items from ADD/REMOVE PROGGS window.

    Did you install it to a Default Directory? Or did you Choose a different place? Cos i had a similar Problem on the midtown madness demo on M:E After i installed it to a custom Directory, i just had to cope with it there till the nxt time i rebooted.
