    Unistalling programs.

    As some of you might rember a while ago my C:windows\system32\config\software file became corrupted, and I repaced it with the file E:\windows\sytem32\config\software, and my computer continured to work almost like normal.

    there is one slight problem and that is a couple of programs do not reconize that there installed, such as Office, and Morrowind. I would like to uninstall these files, but can not do so because there not listed in the Windows Add/remove diolog box. Nor can I find a way to unistall them.

    How about installing them, then uninstalling them. Sounds a long way round, I know, but I've seen it work.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    sigh, I did that Ride.

    Um Hammer the entire point of unistalling them is so that I can re install them fresh. But if no one can think of a better way to do so, then I will go with your method.
