  1. It hit me the other day when I noticed that for some bizarre reason I had 2 entries for Sigma Design's DVD Station and Hollywood Plus software in my Add / Remove Programs List, that I had completely forgotten how to sort this, despite the fact that I had somehow worked it out or looked it up in the past.

    This a common problem with Windowz and something that, for some reason, tends to really annoy people, so I have posted the relevant links and quote here:

    Just a question about this...

    When we are supposed to delete the registry key, do we delete the whole folder or just one of the subkeys, because as soon as I did this with Adobe Photoshop 7.0, I have had trouble saving things with it. Any ideas?
