I am trying to remove some programs from my computer which take up alot of room and I don't use anymore, but when I go into add/remove programs it won't let me. I am running XP. Is there any software which will remove them?

look in Start/All Programs/what you want to uninstall, to see if it has its own uninstall option.

If these programs are in use or have been loaded at startup, it will not be easy to remove them without closure.

No uninstall programs work on the basis of watching the changes made to your drive and making a log so they can be removed later. the only way is to make a note of main program name or the one that's in add remove, then delete folder in explorer do a find on the name you have copied and delete the ones associated with the program the rest is in the registry. You can try regclean or you can edit the reg your self to clear it.

Sorry, posted too quick.

Try starting in safe mode and deleting from there. Make sure you are backed up first as it has been known for Windows to turn base over apex if it doesn't like the uninstalling you've done.

Take it easy and only remove one program per boot up whichever method you choose to do it.
