Hello Superbee,

You could use the tutorial below to remove the program's uninstall entry from the "Programs and Features" page, but it will not uninstall the program though.

Programs and Features - Remove Uninstall Entry - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Superbee68104

What program are you trying to remove, what error are you getting - Programs and Features - Uninstall or Change a Program

Danny

EDIT - This may seem strange but if the uninstaller is missing sometimes you have to reinstall to uninstall. I know that sounds daft but it does work

You're welcome, but were you able to get the program uninstalled if that was also what you were wanting?
