  1. Hey all
    I'm on my girlfriend's computer and I was hoping to clean it up, as it has a lot of unused programs installed on it. I went to the add/remove program option in control panel annnnnd... there's no option to remove any of the programs. I uninstalled a couple programs last weekend, so I know it was working then. Anybody know how I can address this issue?

    Edit: She's running on windows XP by the way.

    Start -> Run -> %programfiles% (include the percentage marks)

    Inside Program Files folder, open individually the sub program folder you wish to uninstall.

    Locate the file unistall.exe (this name may vary ie uninst.exe)
    Double click on it, and remove the specific program
