How to remove Uninstalled programs from Add/Remove Program list..

OS: Windows XP

Sometimes when you have uninstalled a software, it still remains in Add/Remove Programs. This becomes quite frustrating, as when you click uninstall button the Program is not removed. I experienced this condition with my Adobe Photoshop CS3.

To remove these uninstalled programs follow these steps:-

  • Open Registry Editor(regedit.exe) in Run Under start menu.
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
  • Then just delete the entries related to the uninstalled software .
  • Now reopen Add/Remove Programs, the program will not be in the list.

Hence you will not see the damn program in that List.....
