Question Help me Remove This...

I recently downloaded a temp program for school. Now that I installed the permanent one, I want to uninstall the temp one. However, it is not located in the Add/Remove Hardware section.

I know the location of the program, but it does not give me any option to uninstall. Can I just delete it?

By the way, the program is connected with my account at school and is a compiler, if that makes any difference.

Sorry, when I was writing I meant "Add/Remove Programs" that was a typo - the program is not located there.

start menu / run line / ( type ) regedt32 hit enter...
Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE , expand SOFTWARE.. and find your "program".

2 .... Find the program file or Root directory and delete the sucker.

After cleaning the registry of entries for the program, you should delete all folders for that program as well.
