I always use Windows' Add/Remove Programs function (within Control Panel) to remove the programs I install. As I'm sure everyone knows, some programs remove themselves more easily and tidily than others. One of my pet peeves are programs that, although correctly uninstalled through Add/Remove Programs, fail to remove their entry from the Add/Remove Programs listing (I call them ghosts)!

Enter Add/Remove Plus! 2000. I installed Add/Remove Plus! 2000 (the trial version). The install was, as usual, uneventful. When I ran the program for the first time, it came up with a speech bubble with a question mark inside it on three programs which appear in my Add/Remove Programs list. Two of those programs were ghosts (they had actually been uninstalled, but still appear in Add/Remove Programs). The other program which appeared with the bubble is still installed on my computer. The user interface is simple and uncluttered, and walked me through a pre-test to see whether these three questioned programs were still installed on my computer. Two of them tested as having been uninstalled. After the pre-test, the program gives you the option of removing this erroneous entry from your Add/Remove programs list. It's simply the click of one button and those annoying ghost entries are removed from your Add/Remove programs list forever!

I'm very impressed with Add/Remove Plus! 2000. It's well worth the miniscule price. You can use the trial version free for 30 days; go for it! You'll have a much cleaner computer for your effort!
