    Hi Everybody,

    I would like to know how to uninstall a program that doesn't want to uninstall. Through the ADD/Remove, I click on remove and it says that it cannot find a External dll. Plus there is another program that is in there as well that comes up as cannot find dll.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    try reinstalling the program first.

    Also if that fails, find the directory of it then delete it and then go through the registry and delete any occurrence of the software (back it up first), search by compnay name and sofware name

    Use regcleaner.
    Delete the registry entry of the program you want in the uninstall menu tab.

    Thanks Guys,


    I will be trying that registry approach right now. I did uninstall one of the program by installing it first then rmoving after.

    Thanks Again

    If you use a freeware program like Add/Remove Pro v. 2.06 in the freeware section you can see which programs in add\remove are pointing nowhere. It has an option to remove the program name or change it's location so that it will uninstall if you have moved the installed program to a different location.
