worldshare.com

I recently downloaded World Share a free access provider. They lease a line from ATT and their server is screwed up.
I have deleted their dial up but I can find them nowhere on my computer. The only thing that's visible is the icon on the desktop. I have tried to put that in the recycle bin but it refuses to enter. I have been unable to conntact their tech support where I believe the uninstall is. I want to remove World share!! Any ideas?

"long wait"
Humm, I see no feedback on the posted suggestions, if you followed my suggestions then you should have fixed the problem, if you had any questions or needed more advice then you could have asked.

Since this is not "on location" repair service then we need feedback from the questioner as to the direction to go in.

Therefore I am posting as the answer since my suggestion would have fixed the problem. If you felt this was over your head you could have asked for some guidance, since you didn't then I assume the problem was solved.

Try opening REGEDIT and do a search for World Share and delete any key that it finds.

Make sure you have a backup of the registry just in case.

Ray is right, but maybe you need more.  If it is on the desktop as a short cut then you should be able to delete it (right click and select delete).  But this is not enough and I bet it is in the tray on the bottom of the screen.  If this is the case, do this:  Start > Run > msconfig.  Select the Startup Tab, and unclick the box next to World. . .  whatever.  (REboot, maybe later).  Then check Control Panel, Add/Remove programs, and see if you can remove it there -- probably won't find it.  Finally, edit the registry.  This is fun, really.  Everybody says first do a back up, but I don't exactly know how.  But, as Ray says, Start > Run > regedit.  Then Edit, Find, and type "world", or whatever you think its name is.  Try this a couple of times if you feel like it to get comfortable before you right click on something you want to delete, and select delete.  The F3 key will page you through the registry, looking for these keys, and you can delete them.  It reallly does work, but practice first finding the entries for World or whatever, if you are nervous.

For the backup, if you have win98 you can use msconfig, regestry checker to do the backup.
