Default Program won't go away...

There is a program that is stuck in add/remove programs. How do I forcefully remove the entry for it from the list? I downloaded TweakUI/PowerToys but couldn't find a way to remove it. Thx

open your registereditor (regedit.exe)

go to the following key:

\\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cu rrentVersion\Uninstall

you will see a lot of GUID's (those {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} numbers). Some apps give an applicationname instead of a GUID.

click on those and look for the "DisplayName" entry.. this one says what it is. ex: Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_05

if you find your program.. delete the complete GUID and it will be removed from your Software list
