Hi everyone. Well some time ago i was checking the games i had installed and i deleted some of the ones i didn't play anymore. So now its passed like 3 months and i wanted to install them again, but everytime i inserted the CD, the installation stopped and there was a message that said that the game wasn't uninstalled. So i tried absolutely everything to uninstall them, but nothing seemed to work, it keep saying the game was still there. I also tried deleting them from the control panel but the names dont figure. And all the programs i tried didn't help either. I started researching a bit and it said that i had to delete them from the registry, but i have no idea how to do that. Thanks people for the support, i really need some help on this one.

Had the same problem with programs
Install a program called "Total Uninstall" It removes all the files related to the particular program/game from registery :D  Hope this helps ;)

hey baladya, i tried the program you recommended me but the games i cant uninstall dont appear on the program. The only ones that appear are the ones on the control panel.

The games have probably left some lines in your registry.

Download CCCleaner and do a registry cleanup (DO A BACKUP IF YOU HAVE IMPORTANT STUFF ON YOUR MACHINE).

It should delete broken registry strings and ghostfiles.

To the OP.... open up Windows Explorer and delete all the game files from there. Not as good as reg-editing but the installer might be seeing the games old folders.
