Lightbulb Add or Remove Programs?

I am having some problems getting rid of programs from my "add or remove programs"

I have uninstalled the program but the program is still showing up in this area.

I have used a program before that helped me get rid of these types of things but I can't remember the nam of it for the life of me.

Anyone know how to get rid of these?

Thank you for any help.

Default Re: Add or Remove Programs?

in the add remove programs listings, is the size of the program still as large as it was first installed or is it smaller?

if the size is smaller than of what it use to be, go into the Program Files folder and delete the folders that you are trying to delete.

also clean out your temp folder, lots and lots build up in there
