Windows 7: UNINSTALL files on D:/

UNINSTALL files on D:/

I have 2 hard drives.

I use C: for Window files + any files relating to windows. IE ccleaner, or Norton Antivirus etc
and i use D:/ for games and music only

I have a few remains of games on my D:/ that i can't install, or even delete the folder. I can't unstall them from 'Add Remove Programme' as there isn't a option for this and i ant uninstall them with ccleaner.

So, dose anyone know any programmes, or how to unstall old games on another drive, other then C:/ ??

Thank You
Dan

What happens when you try to delete these folders? What error do you get? You may be able to take ownership of them.

As for uninstalling, I think you are saying these games do not show up in A/R Programs, right? If so then the only way top get rid of them is to delete the folders then scan the registry for any junk they may have left behind.

I find RegSeeker invaluable for doing this. Give it a try once you get the folders deleted. Use the Clean Registry tool and once it completes, select only the Green items then delete them. RegSeeker will make a backup of the entries it deletes so if anything does go wrong, you can restore them easily.

Reinstall the programs to their current location, then uninstall them in Control Panel.

Help. I'm a moron, so I deleted the SP1 Beta uninstall files.
Uh, so, yeah. Windows helpfully gives me a message, every-so-often, stating that it will expire in 0 hours, as I have a beta version of SP 1. Obviously, the solution is to use the non-beta version of SP 1, however, I can't do that, because I accidentally deleted the un-install files, using...
