How can I delete programs that I have uninstalled off my computer.

    How can I delete programs that I have uninstalled off my computer.

    How can I delete programs that I have uninstalled off my computer. The
    reason I’m asking this is because the program still stays on my computer as
    a file ready to be downloaded again.

    Sounds like spyware to me, what name is this programme?

    I agree it sounds like something that shouldn't be doing what it sounds
    like it's doing - that is assuming we understand you properly.

    Can you explain what you mean by "Stays on the computer" and what you
    mean by "Downloaded again".

    By Trillion I assume you mean Trillian - best to use Google to find Trillian
    Support Forums.

    I did find this:

    Trillian can be uninstalled from within the Add/Remove Programs section of
    your Windows control panel.

    If, for some reason, there is no entry for Trillian, the product can
    uninstall itself. Simply click your Start button, then Run, then type:

    C:\Program Files\Trillian\trillian.exe /uninstall

    Click OK, then Trillian will uninstall itself.

    If both of these methods do not work, there is one last way to uninstall.
    Simply delete the Trillian directory and all of its subdirectories, probably
    located in your Program Files directory of Drive C. Also remove any
    shortcuts and icons pointing to Trillian.

    Trillian does not scatter program libraries outside of its directory, nor
    does it place anything in your registry except for uninstall information.

    Your message history and personal settings will not be removed during the
    uninstall process. If you wish to remove these, you must currently do so by
    hand.

    For the other one all I can suggest is try this:
    http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-...rt/default.htm

    You are probably going to have to do a registry cleanup if there are no
    entries for these in Add/Remove.

    Okay, when you download something from the internet you usually get two
    options from the link - Run or Save.

    If you choose run the program will usually download to a temporary
    folder, install itself and you will never see the temporary file it
    leaves behind. If you choose "Save" (Sometimes Save As) it will probably
    finish up on your desktop as an "Archive" which you could double click
    on to install the program again.

    If this sounds like what you have then you can drag those files into the
    trashcan, they are not installed but just parked there. To uninstall you
    should use the remove option in control panel unless the program has an
    option to uninstall.

    If you did not uninstall them properly it is a different issue so if
    what I said doesn't sound right ask before doing anything.
