add remove not working

I downloaded a program that I don't want. I don't think it downloaded properly, and it's empty on the add/remove column. but, I can't remove it from the list with add/remove. Also, i cannot open the program. It's just on the list.
How can I remove it?

Hi Dennis7490. You might try the program CCLEANER. Highly recommended on this site.. Under the TOOLS option in this program is a program uninstall option. You might give this a try. Report back and let us know.

add remove not working

Hi John,

thanks. I tried Ccleaner, but it did not remove the program. the program is empty. It's just that the title remains on my add/remove list. When I click 'Uninstall" It says, "Please wait until the current program is finished being uninstalled or changed."
