Greetings to all,

I seem to not be able to remove (dont know how to do it) program from control panel when those same programs have been deleted from windows.
I have searched the net but being a complete newbie I may have searched badly.
Any help is much appreciated

Kind Regards,

zongo saiba

Control Panel items are usually either *.CPL files stored in the C:\Windows\system32 directory or some command registered in the registry at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace
or
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace

Search for any CPL files in C:\Windows\System32 or open Regedit.exe and go to the above keys, then check the subitems of the above reg keys to see if the program you uninstalled has left remnants behind.

Btw, this is not related in any way to Classic Shell. :)
