Morning,
Had installed a program several months ago and did not care for it, Tried to remove using ADD/REMOVE Programs and did get most of it off my system except in the registry and ADD/REMOVE program(s) it still says that there is 268 entries from this program which is 3D Home Architect Deluxe from Broderbund in the Registry...
I cannot find any files left to delete in the file manager...
After uninstalling this program from the ADD/REMOVE dialog box it still says that the program is still there which is 2 programs as noted,3D Home Architect Deluxe/3D Bonus Catalog...
When I try to uninstall by clicking on them again the system freeze's...
Can you tell me what I can do to get this off my system?
I did try REG CLEAN from Microsoft and it did not remove it!
Also Broderbund was no help...
Thanks for being of Help
Steve

It's in pay  versions now but you may be able to find older, free versions.

Also, have you looked in 'program files' for it's parent folder?
