    I'm runing Win XP Pro.My guru, who should know better,messed up some programs in such a way that I can't get them out of add-remove in the conventional way.And I can't reinstall them again in order to remove them from add-remove for a clean install because these programs see that a version is stiill there.Do I here the registry beckoning?

    Tweak-XP (www.tweak-xp.com)
    RegCleaner (www.jv16.org) -- FREE.

    can both do what you are trying to do.

    In Tweak-XP:

    System + File Tweaks
    Add/Remove Programs

    In RegCleaner:

    Simply click "Uninstall menu"

    And the registry method :D

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

    Just delete the keys corresponding to the software you want to remove.
