Windows 7: How Delete/Remove broken apps in "Extras Library"???

How Delete/Remove broken apps in "Extras Library"???

Alright, I used MC Studio to try and create several custom apps. Unfortunately, none of them work, and MC studio placed an icon for each broken launcher in the "Extras Library" sub-section of 7MC.

If I right-click on the app icons in the extras library, I can hide them, but I can't delete them. If I choose to have them appear on the start menu, they will, but only in the "Extras" menu strip.

They're not in the way of anything if I hide them, but since they don't work, I'd like to remove them completely. Where can I go to do so? Are they listed somewhere in the registry or some config file somewhere?

Thanks ahead of time!

If the application is among those listed in control panel/programs and features, you should be able to use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall it and get at the last vestiges of the program. Use the advanced choice to dig into the registry to the maximum depth. Be sure to inspect the registry keys it brings up to ensure they relate to your application only.

Back up the registry first is always a good idea.

Thanks for this useful tool, but i can't find the right option to delete extras application.
Probably because i added these new apps in Extras Library using a third part utility called "Media center Launcher". Its a good utility to register new application, but not so useful to unregister.

Do you have any idea on how to clean unwanted extras library applications...?
Thanks
