Programs Cannot Be Uninstalled

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Hello-

I am trying to uninstall some software (iTunes and iPod). Simply going to
Add/Remove Programs does not work. The uninstallation begins then simply
stops and nothing happens. Furthermore I cannot reinstall over the program.
What I did was manually delete everything associated with the programs in
safemode (I talked to an Apple guy and I think I got everything). However
the programs are still in the list and I can't uninstall them! I was hoping
someone could shed some light on how to completely remove these pesky
programs. If not, anyone want to buy an iPod shuffle?? (kidding). Thanks
for any and all help.

-Ben

    Uninstall them manually: Start REGEDIT and scan the Registry for
    "ipod" and "itunes". Delete all references. Then delete the folders
    for the programs.
    At last you could use a Registry cleaner like the Easy Cleaner
    (http://www.toniarts.com) to check the Registry for invalid entries
    again. But use this tool with care and do only delete succh thing from
    which you know that they are safe to delete.
