How do I remove nodes from a treeview

I am using the attached code snippet to remove nodes from a treeview. The tree contains a scan of a PC showing all folders containing exe files on the machine. It also shows all other folders which I want to remove from the tree.

However, it only removes 1 such node them terminates (the search not the program).

Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong?

Thank you
Private Sub FindAndRemoveNode()

        Dim nodes As TreeNodeCollection = TreeView1.Nodes

        Dim n As TreeNode

        For Each n In nodes

            FindRecursiveRemoveNode(n)

            dlgProgress.ProgressBar1.PerformStep()

        Next

    End Sub

 

     Private Sub FindRecursiveRemoveNode(ByVal tNode As TreeNode)

        Dim tn As TreeNode

        For Each tn In tNode.Nodes

            dlgProgress.tbFileName.Text = tn.Text.ToString()

            dlgProgress.ProgressBar1.PerformStep()

            If InStr(tn.Text, ".exe") Then

                FindRecursiveRemoveNode(tn)

            Else

                tn.Remove()

                FindRecursiveRemoveNode(tn)

            End If

        Next

    End Sub

Taking a quick glance at your code, I don't think you're working your way up the tree. Your recursive method should, given a node, remove all child nodes that have no children themselves and call itself on any child nodes that have further child nodes. It seems you're removing a node from the tree and then trying to recurse down into it, after it's gone. I'd process then remove.

Try this out...
    Private Sub FindAndRemoveNode()

        Dim RemoveList As New List(Of TreeNode)
 

        dlgProgress.ProgressBar1.Style = ProgressBarStyle.Marquee

        For Each n As TreeNode In TreeView1.Nodes

            FindRecursiveRemoveNode(n, RemoveList)

            Application.DoEvents()

        Next
 

        For Each n As TreeNode In RemoveList

            n.Remove()

        Next

        dlgProgress.ProgressBar1.Style = ProgressBarStyle.Blocks

    End Sub
 

    Private Sub FindRecursiveRemoveNode(ByVal tNode As TreeNode, ByVal RemoveList As List(Of TreeNode))

        dlgProgress.tbFileName.Text = tNode.Text

        Application.DoEvents()

        If tNode.Text.ToLower.IndexOf(".exe") <> -1 Then

            RemoveList.Add(tNode)

        Else

            For Each n As TreeNode In tNode.Nodes

                FindRecursiveRemoveNode(n, RemoveList)

            Next

        End If

    End Sub
