    What is the best way to uninstall a software besides the conventional 'add/remove program' way ? I've got a problem here..I've had Excel installed in my PC long way back and seems that if I were to uninstall it I need the CD but now seems that I've misplaced the CD somewhere....what do I do to get it off my PC ?

    RegCleaner should do it. It will take all of the registry settings out, and you can just manually delete everything from the folder on the hard drive.
