If it's just the directory you want back (and you know when it was deleted) look for the files in the recycle bin higlight them, right click and select re-create and the should go back.

Its not the directory im looking for.
In Win95 under control panel there's the add/remove progs. menu.
If you do not uninstall progs. via this menu they stay on that list forever and ever. How do i delete entries in this list or remove entries from this list.

Or if you had TweakUI (or any of the comparable utilities) you could use that to "edit" the registry like you did by hand.

Hi there witnezz.
The only way (That I know of) is:
push "Start > Run" type REGEDIT, click OK.
push Ctrl + F (Find), type the name of the DELETED pgm, push Enter.
Evry time you fined it, (both sides of screen, you moove with TAB) hit the DELETE key.
until you get FINISHED.... msg.
that shuld do it.
and now for somthing even MUCH easier.
look in the internet for SNWIN (system notebook for win 95), install it, check the Registry check (or somthing like that, dont remember the exat name) it will show you ALL the NOT found files, folders.....
delete them and save time and NERVS!
and next before EREASING a pgm, check the add/remoove if its there. if its not, go ahead, delete it, BUT check the REGISTRY anyway for components, or ascosiated files.
ELC.
