Installation Problem

I am upgrading from Vista to Seven. I am asked to uninstall Perfect Disk which I do not recognize and Life Cam. I have uninstalled the latter although it is still shown as needing attention.
Any guidance welcome.

First, it is not just me suggesting this, but at least 95% of the members; don't upgrade do a clean install. Then you can just reinstall your programs and not worry about what needs attention, now.
