When I was using PaintShop Pro5 a icon was in pop up menu of the right click of the mouse. I did unistall PS5 with Norton Cleansweep but the icon remain. How can I get rid of the obsolete icon

Try running regclean (you can download it from www.download.com for W95, it is on the W98 cd)
It should remove the entry for you.

Do you have TweakUI installed? There is an option in it where you can remove items from some of the menus that come up when you right click on something.
If you could be more exact on where or what you are rightclicking on then we could tell you where to remove it from. You get different option from rightclicking depending on what or where you are doing this from.

Go to Run and type Regedit.

Go to the following keys and look for Painshop Pro.  If you find any reference to it, delete the key.  I am listing all the possible keys.  You may or may not have some of them.

As a precaution, before you begin go to Registry>Export Registry and save it to your desktop.

From the View menu of any folder,
select folder options and then file
types.  Select the file type that still
has Paintshop listed, and select edit.
Then select the Open action and replace
Paintshop with the appropriate program that you will be using for that file type. (Or you can remove the Open action altogether.)

A little too simple I think m war.  I believe they meant how to remove a program from your right click menu.
