    How to delete a double Program Entry on Control Panel?

    Hi all,
    I'm running Vista Business 32bit on a HP Compaq 8510p notebook.
    Early this month I've upgraded the ATI Driver and control panel from HP
    drivers page.
    A few days later I've noticed that on the notebook control panel, there is 2
    entrys for ATI catalyst Install Manager, one with the date I bought the
    notebook and the second one with the date I've upgraded the drive.
    On the control panel I've tried to uninstall the older one, but suddenly the
    SO crashed and the notebook restarted. I can' t remove it!
    On CCleaner, there's only 1 entry for this program, so I think, possible,
    the older installation is not really there, but there's an entry on the
    regestry!?
    Can anyone help me to remove it?
    Thanks,
    Jorge

    Free program, you could also UNINSTALL the good copy and
    it might take the other one with it,,,, Karen's program is easier.
