Default Registry Problems

Well I have Battlefield Vietnam @ Command and Conquer Generals on my computer. Well had more like it. I deleted both of them and when I go to add and remove programs they still are there. I went into the Registry deleted everythig from there. Now I tried reinstalling Vietnam and I cant because it says its still on my computer and all this other stuff. I want to know how can I completely get rid of these programs and be able to reinstall Vietnam without a problem.

Thank You

How did you delete them in the first place?

I can tell you where BF:Vietnam registry entires are but not command and conquer. You still have BF:V entries, that I asure you.

try go to the registry, click on edit and from the edit menu choose find and do a command and conquer search (may be help). Also sometimes you get duplicated files , so may be you still have some files in your hard drives.

Working with registry sometimes is dangerous, even with experts. Have you backed up your registry? If not, I think you should do it next times.
