Delete Uninstalled Applications from Add/Remove Programs List

Did you ever find an application still listed on Add/Remove Programs though you've surely uninstalled it before?

This could happen because of imperfect uninstallation process or the uninstaller itself is a faulty-built one.

This trick will help you to remove those applications permanently from Add/Remove Programs.

Here are the steps:
1. Click Start>Run and then type regedit.
2. Click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
3. Look at its below subkey and search for application that you'd like to delete.
4. Right click on that application then choose delete or simply press Delete button.
5. Now close/exit the Registry Editor window.

Now go to Add/Remove Programs and notice that application has been clearly removed from the list by using this simple trick.
