  1. Program not showing up under Uninstall in Registry Editor


    Hi all,

    I am trying to modify the name of a game installed on my Windows 10 pc by going to local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall, but is only showing some of my programs and not any of the games. I would really like to change the name and icon of call of duty modern warfare, so if anyone knows why it isn't showing up or knows another way to do this I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

    Uninstall a program that doesn't show up?

    I downloaded and installer a Program(YouTubeToMP4). It went to Programs (x86) and does not show up on the Uninstall list.

    Any suggestions?

  3. Deleting an uninstalled software

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    First, I would suggest you to contact Python if they have any uninstaller, if yes, run the uninstaller package to get all the remnants of python removed completely from your computer.

    If that does not help you may edit the registry and remove all the values for python. Follow the steps below to do so:

    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added
    protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge
    Base:

    322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

    • Click Start, and then click Run.
    • In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click
      OK.
    • In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    • In the left pane, click the Uninstall registry key, and then click
      Export on the File menu.
    • In the Export Registry File dialog box that appears, click
      Desktop in the Save in list, type uninstall in the
      File name box, and then click Save.
    • Each key listed under Uninstall in the left pane of Registry Editor represents a program that is displayed in the
      Currently installed programs list of the Add or Remove Programs tool. To determine which program that each key represents, click the key, and then view the following values in the details pane on the right:
      DisplayName: The value data for the DisplayName key is the name that is listed in Add or Remove Programs.

      -and-

      UninstallString: The value data for the UninstallString key is the program that is used to uninstall the program.
    • After you identify the registry key that represents the program that you removed but which is still displayed in the
      Currently installed programs list of Add or Remove Programs, right-click the key in the left pane of the
      Registry Editor window, and then click Delete.

      Click Yes in response to the "Are you sure you want to delete this key and all of its subkeys?" message.
    • On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
    • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click
      Add or Remove Programs
      .

      In the Currently installed programs list, verify that the program whose registry key you deleted is no longer listed.
    Feel free to write us back for any further assistance with Windows, we'll be glad to assist you.

  4. Program not showing up under Uninstall in Registry Editor

    How to uninstall an installed "ghost" program, i.e. does not appear in the " uninstall or change a program" list

    Hello Art,

    This issue can occur if the program or application that you have installed creates a registry key which has more than 60 characters in length. To resolve the issue, we can modify the registry. However, you have to make sure that you follow the steps carefully.
    For added protection,
    back up the registry
    before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if an issue occurs.

    To uninstall the program, follow the steps below:

    • Use Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) to view the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    • Double-click the UninstallString registry value, copy the contents of the
      Value Data box by selecting the contents and pressing CTRL+C, and then quit
      Registry Editor.
    • Click Start, click Run, press CTRL+V to paste the uninstall command, and then click
      OK.

    Update us on how it goes for you so we can further assist you.
