I started to remove old programs from a hard drive with the add/revove program. There were about 8 old programs I was trying to remove. Only one of the 8 were able to be removed with the program. Then
I went under programs to try to uninstall and the would not. So I took one program and deleted everything I could find relating to it ( approx. 2 gig ) and no free space was added to the hard drive. My guess is the HDD is about 5 yrs old. Is it just an old worn out hard drive?
