    Unable to remove programs from PC

    Hello,

    I am enquiring if there any FREE programs to remove programs from my PC, as l have some programs on my PC which l would like to remove but l cannot as there is not an option to do this in "Add/Remove" Programs within the Control Panel. These programs are spyware which is the reason l think there is not an option to remove them.

    </center> Good thinking !!! <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> Do you suppose that the malware writers are going to provide you with an easy way to get their <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> off your machine.

    Get your self over to Tom Coyote's and get started on your journey into the world of malware. You will need to visit the download site after you read what's on his welcome site and after downloading the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> programs there and running the scans, then go to the Forums and post the results and wait for one of their experts to help you. Have fun and when you've finished get youself some protection from this junk so it doesn't happen again !!!

    Do you know what the programs are? If they can be traced back to a "real" software vendor, you might be able to find instructions or a downloadable utility to do the uninstallation.

    By all means, don't give us any further information about this issue so that we might be able to assist others in the future. Keep the facts to yourself when something you've posted about works out, so that only you know what the problem was and how to correct it.

    What "programs" were you having problems with ??? Do you know how they got on your machine ??? Are you certain that you've removed all traces of the programs in question ??? Where did you find the "Add / Remove Pro" program ???

    In response to your questions.

    The programs were:

    ClockSyn and another spyware program l cannot remember the name of.
    They got on my PC as someone went to use it before l installed spyware programs, which l have done now.
    I am certain all traces of these programs were removed as ran all the spyware prorams l have installed, l also ran
