Program Uninstall Information Missing In The Registry And Add/remove

Am Running Windows XP home with SP2 on a P4 machine,everything running smoothly except that I tried to uninstall a program through the control panel-add/remove route and even though most programs are listed there, only a few of them like 5 out of 40 odd have the change/remove button when the particular program name is clicked. It just shows size, used frequency and last used on, I cannot uninstall those programs incl. the officeXP package. I am absolutely sure all this was possible few days back and tried to get my system back to a 7-8 day restore point but this does not help as well

In registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall "
only 5-6 programs are listed and the change/remove button only shows up for these. Where did the rest go? all these other programs are running on my computer. What could be the problem and how can I resolve it without re-formatting

Uninstall, Or In The Add/remove Program Delete
When you uninstall, or in the add/remove program delete, do all the items of the program uninstall. Especially the drivers, I am having a small problem on the computer and I know its due to an unapproved windows driver installed by accident for my sandisk reader. How can you find out the drivers installed on your computer?

No Uninstall Buttons In Add / Remove Programs
Like the title says, when I run Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, some of the apps have a Change/Remove button, but some (including some I really want to uninstall) have no such button. It just has a date and says how often I use the app.

Computer Taken Over - Add Remove - Uninstall Desktop
My sister's laptop, (Windows XP) is freezing up and having a lot of trouble accessing the internet. She thinks it's from an e-mail that she downloaded a screen saver from. It has to do with a web page called, 3D Dolphins screen saver, desktop weather and a couple of other things that all downloaded at the same time.She has to go to Control, Alt, Delete to try to get the laptop to shut down and then has to click on "End Now" several times. I will attach a picture of the list.Also, when she goes to "Add & Remove", it won't let her uninstall the desktop weather and another one called When U Save.

Add/Remove Programs Did Not Remove Program QuickBooks 200
I want to do a clean install of the licensed version of QuickBooks 2005 CD but not until the downloaded trial is cleaned from the HDD. Back on May 15th, Laura instructed me how to do this. Finally got around to starting the process a couple weeks ago, then put it on hold again because the uninstall didn't seem to work. I'm stuck. What I did: Uninstalled QBs 2005 Trial using Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs. It appeared to perform the program uninstall successfully and it's no longer listed in Add/Remove. But, according to the HDD the program is *still* installed. Did not find an "uninstall" or "unwise" file in the QB folder. Nor did

How To Remove Program That Doesn't Show In Add Remove?
I discovered that my main computer had acquired the 'Pure Networks Platform' mess, possibly from when I installed a Linksys WRT 160n wireless router. The actual software doesn't seem to be on the setup cd, but I haven't downloaded it either. Have figured out that its give me slowdowns and wierdnesses and generally making me mad. Especially when I find that it does not show in Add Remove! Tried searching for Pure Networks remover, and other variations in wording. Find that lots of people have similar difficulties. What is the trick? Safe mode and delete the folders? Search the registry manually?

Cannot Remove Program Using Add / Remove In Control Panel
I use Windows XP. I have two problems using the Add/Remove function in my Control Panel: specifically I want to remove a program called "Creative Zen V Series (R2). The prompt after attempting to remove comes back with "The specific module could not be found" and leaves the program showing. I need to get rid of this entry. Secondly I want to remove "Calendar Creator 9" and when this is selected to remove, I get a prompt that says "To install the program it must first be removed using the Control Panel function Add/Remove. This is frustrating as that is exactly what I'm trying to do, NOT INSTALL the program again.

Add / Remove Command Can't Remove Program?
Recently I installed "Ulead Video Studio 9" program on my computer. But for some reason it did not install properly, it crashed half way. Clicking on the shortcut on the desktop does not initiate the program. I decided to uninstall the program by going into the Add/Remove folder of Windows XP. But from the Add/Remove folder, I was not able to uninstall the program. Its like 174.5 MB file sitting on my programs folder. Tried to use DOS delete command to delete files. But it looks like will take few months to clear all the files. I was able to delete some files by going into each menu/sub menu etc. It looked like a very tedious process. There are thousands of files for this program. Does anyone know any good program to remove/uninstall this program without damaging other programs?

Change / Remove Button Missing In Add / Remove Programs
I have tried previously to uninstall my HP Officejet G85 printer from HP Pavilion a1130n running XP Media. There is no Change/Remove button in Add/Remove Programs but the program is there, 150 MB, and the file suggested on the HP website for uninstalling older printers from XP produces a message that it's "unsupported" can't remember exact verbiage, been a while since last tried. Even reinstalled in the hopes that a message would come up to the effect "this program is already installed, do you want install to remove it prior to completing this install," but it just installs the printer again with a number after it ... I'm up to "hp officejet g series - 3."

Change / Remove Buttons Missing In Add/Remove Programs
My laptop is missing lots of programs under Add/Remove Programs that I know are installed. Furthermore, some that are listed don't have the Remove button next to it. The missing programs aren't listed in the Uninstall registry key and I'm confident there are not viruses on the machine.

Add And Remove Program
I was wondering if anybody can help me get rid of a number of program names i have sitting on my add/remove program, I try to remove them but when i do it tells me that the link does not exist and therefore i can't get rid of the name as i must have removed the offending programs manually instead of through the above program, as i should have.Is there a way of removing the wording, i have tried moving it into a removal program that i have, called emco move on boot, which is a drag and drop setup but i can't drag them across.
