Default Can't remove

I am trying to uninstall Adobe Dream weaver but it aint letting me. I have deleted the folder and all but, when i go into "programs and features" (Vista) It says its still there but, if i try to remove it just will say removing componants but doesn't do anything. I have left my computer on all night and when i come back to it in the morning its still says "removing componants"

Any thoughts?

Can you boot to safe mode in Vista??? Seriously, I don't know. Otherwise look into a delete-on-boot software.

Yes, F8 does work. But i couldnt care less about removing Dreamweaver. Its not causing any problems and i got other serious problem to fix right now in the "The World Wide Web" Forum Section but thx for help. I will be sure to try Safe-Mode later.

If its not affecting your system, then you could manually remove it from the registry using a registry cleaner but you have to be extremely careful with them programs
