Windows 98 :
Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs
Now there's a list of every program on your system that's decently installed. But sometimes, when deinstalling, an error occurs, and I delete it manually, but it still stays in this list. How do I delete it from the list ?

Run regedit and goto the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
There you should see the key for the program you wish to remove from the list, then just delete the key.

Thanks, it works. I still wonder why it didn't turn up this section in the registry when I searched through it. But, it works. Excellent !
