    mystery file (WundowsXP Pro SP2)

    In my ' Program Files ' Folder, I have a 40kb Application file, named : Uniinstall_ CDS
    Does anyone know what CDS is?

    Assuming that you mis-typed the name, and instead of "Uniinstall_ CDS" you meant "Uninstall_CDS" (only one <big>i</big> and no space between <big>_</big> and <big>CDS</big>

    A quick Google search led me to here, which suggests that it might be the deinstall program for Cyberlink Power2Go.

    Thanks StuartR,
    Yes I did mispell, uninstall
    I think I'll just copy the file to a floppy then delete it.
    I did the Google search to "DEL' but it didn't help.
    I tried to join the DEL forum but after I received the confirmation and tried to log on, I couldn't do so.
    I tried to contact Del support but as I didn't have a valid Service No. I failed..
    Is this forum just for Del system Users?

    Do you mean Dell? And didn't you just make 2 posts in the thread to which Stuart pointed you?

    I found out that the Application ' uninstall_CDs.exe' is to uninstall ' PowerDVD '
    I don't think it should be on its own in the ' Program Files ' folder
    Any idea where it should be?

    I have no idea at all where this file should be. Why don't you contact the vendor and ask them?

    It should probably be where it is. I suspect that if you used Control Panel to uninstall PowerDvd, the uninstall would look in Program Files for that file. As part of an installation an application 'tells' Windows where the routine to do the uninstall is.
