Windows 7: UNINSTALL files on D:/

28 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Pro X64
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

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.
