    How do I uninstall a program that won't uninstall from the above options? I don't simply want to delete folders because I don't want system errors. Somebody said that he used REGISTRY but I think that's a little precarious to mess with...please help...thank you

    It can depend on the application. Some applications have a separate uninstaller that you can download from their website. It's usually the same as deleting keys from the registry, but it's been setup in a batch file so you don't have to manually do it. Which application are you trying to uninstall?

    You can use a really good software CCleaner. Its purpose is to clean your computer but it has an uninstall feature on the left where it says Tools. Or you can use Ashampoo Uninstaller.
