Question Removing help

Hello, I am currently needing help removing some games that have been removed incorrectly. Now from what i can tell it appears that Denise (a friend) dragged and dropped entire game folders onto an external drive of some sort without uninstalling, or copying anything, and now because of it they don't appear on my uninstall wizard, and if i actually try to play any of them the game recommends that i re-install. However my computer wont let me re-install any of the games affected until i uninstall. And I cant uninstall if there aren't any of the game files in the program files. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop with windows Vista Home Premium, and a 32-bit OS. Any help would be appreciated. *Update* I also have been having trouble finding the "restore to factory default settings" option in the control panel. A walk through would be appreciated. -Thanks-

I think if you look into users and hidden folder it's in the application data folder..

Double click my computer.. c drive.. document and settings/YOU/application data (hidden folder) turn hidden folders on in folder options, it will be their on a list, click show hidden folders then try application data.

Well although there were some files from some of those games, still didn't fix the problem. *update* tried restoring computer to an older time, and there was an error, I repeated with all availible times, ERROR keeps coming up...

right ok, download ccleaner... run and scan your whole system and clean it.. fix and clean the registry also..

click search and look on your system for the games you're trying to uninstall.. try deleting them..

are you admin? make sure you're logged as admin also
