Preferred Solution: Cannot remove iCloud from Control Panel

I recommend trying the free service from Zip Cloud. It's currently our users' favorite backup and storage solution and will save you headaches down the line.

You can get it direct from this link http://goo.gl/rFYDxc. (This link will open the Zip Cloud homepage.)

A: Cannot remove iCloud from Control Panel

Hi,
You could probably start by knowing for a fact that iCloud is located in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Internet Services\".

Another way could be reinstalling iCloud and then uninstalling it again.

I use Windows XP. I have two problems using the Add/Remove function in my Control Panel: specifically I want to remove a program called "Creative Zen V Series (R2). The prompt after attempting to remove comes back with "The specific module could not be found" and leaves the program showing. I need to get rid of this entry.

Secondly I want to remove "Calendar Creator 9" and when this is selected to remove, I get a prompt that says "To install the program it must first be removed using the Control Panel function Add/Remove. This is frustrating as that is exactly what I'm trying to do, NOT INSTALL the program again.

I have had this problem on 2 Win2K computers now. It is caused somehow by USB installations. The latest was installing a HP 3570C USB scanner. The scanner software did not work properly after install, and when I went to the control panel (add/remove) [appwiz.cpl] the program has a large blank area where usually the programs show. (The message is "there are no programs installed on this computer") However, I can scroll down and see the programs listed, but if I click on any entry I get ""mshta.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows.

Hello everyone

I recently had to have my computer reformatted.
Windows XP Service pack 2.

IE7 and OE6. I previously had IE6 and OE6.
But can't bear to change it now.

When I look in the add/remove window I find that some of the programs I reinstalled by disc are not showing.
Also, windows updates, even though I have ticked show updates.
is this something I should worry about?
Many thanks

A:(Resolved) Add/remove In Control Panel

Hi Anne,
This usually occurs if the name in the Registry is more than 60 characters long. Once Windows encounters a name longer than 60 characters no more entries are shown. This should only be a problem if you want to remove the program at a later date. If it causes any problems you can change the registry entry. If you feel confident about editing the registry, I'll give you step by step instructions how to do it.
Regards,
Pilot.

Hi. I've recently bought a Logik Webcam with Built in Microphone to replace my damaged built in HP Webcam in my laptop. I tried to install it and initially showed that it was succesfully installed. I searched for it and could not find it. I went to the devices and printers under Hardware and Sound (control panel) and that's where i found it. Problem is when i connect the device, it does not work. Every time i insert the CD, instead of the wizard installing, the dialog box just gives an option to 'are you sure you want to remove all the features of the highlighted text'. I've thought of deleting the icon from the devices and printers and don't know how as it is not available in the programs of the control panel.

The DTS Audio Control Panel will not let me consistently use headphones. When I plug them in, there is no audio until I open the ACP, go to the Advanced tab, and Enable and then Disable the "Enable Multi-Playback Streaming" option. If I pause audio playback for more than a few minutes, I have to repeat this process. Sometimes this process won't work at all and I can't use headphones until I restart the computer. I don't care about software EQs and enhancements. I would love to not have to use this program at all and just use the built-in Windows audio controls, but I can't find any instructions about how to remove or disable this app. This is extremely frustrating as I'm using this computer for school, and when I pause lecture videos to write something down, my headphones will stop working until I go back into the ACP or restart the computer.

Hi

I installed a trial plug-in to a piece of software which I later removed using its own uninstall option.

I see that the item still appears in the Control Panel>Add or Remove Programmes and if I click to remove it tells me it cannot find the uinstal log file.

As the plug-in is now non-existent, is there a way to remove the entry in Control Panel>Add or Remove Programmes?

A:Add/Remove Programmes in Control Panel

Hi Eric

Sometimes when you uninstall a program, the corresponding Add/Remove entry is not removed. This may be due to incomplete uninstallation or the poorly designed uninstaller itself.

Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe)
Locate the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
Make sure you backup the keys by exporting them to a .reg file.
Look for the name of the program with the orphaned entry.
Delete the entire listing for the software with the orphaned entry.
Close the registry editor.
Restart your computer.

Orphaned entries are those whose uninstallers are not available [but the registry entry might point to the actual uninstaller file]. You may also see errors like "missing install.log or uninstall.log" while trying to uninstall from Add/Remove Programs. The install.log/uninstall.log contains the uninstallation information about a program. When you remove a program from Add/Remove Programs, the log files come into play and remove the corresponding software entries from the registry and the files in the hard disk.

If the LOG files are missing, you may need to reinstall the application again (in the same path) and then try a clean uninstall again. In some cases, the application might be removed, but the entries may still exist in the Add/Remove Programs list. Orphaned entries are usually a result of a system restore rollback operation. Use the above method to remove the Uninstall entri... Read more

When going to add and remove programs in the control panel, the list of installed programs will not load. Have tried it in safe mode and still will not get the list of installed programs. What is causing that to happen?

A:Control Panel to Add or Remove Programs

Do you get any sort of error message? Sometimes the list can take a very long time to load, especially if you have a lot of programs installed.

Hi Everyone,

i have a question. One of my customer want to remove the whole defragment gui from the control panel. If i want to remove anything from the control panel i just use a simple GPO, but every time when i had to use it, i had to remove only top level item. But
the defragment is not an highest level object in the control panel hierachy, its a sublevel one, and i cant use the GPO for that. Is there any experience with the situation like that? 

I working with a Windows 7 infrastructure!

box is not working correctly on my machine. When going to control panel, and selecting Add/Remove Programs, the box comes up as it is supposed to do. However, it does not have the button to remove the program. It has a box on the right that states the size of the program, but it does not have the remove program box. Don't understand what happened to it. Anyone seen this problem before. I am using Windows XP Home, with SP2 installed and every update completed as of today. Thanks for any assistance you may be able to give.

I inadvertently tried to install TweakUI from XP and have since uninstalled it, but the icon still remains in Control Panel. Where in the registry can I delete this please???
(I have Windows Ultimate, 32bit)

A:Remove an icon from Control Panel

Hello Archdeacon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can look in the registry at the location below.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace

Once there, look at each long number CLSID key in the left pane under NameSpace until you see the same TweakUI entry that displays in the Control Panel in the right pane for (Default). If you spot it, then you can just right click on and delete the long number CLSID key for it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I'm on a friends computer and while getting rid of some unwanted software and spyware I noticed there is something in the Add or Remove Program list that's very bizzare. The list has 4 programs starting with the letter A. If I click below that, the area below it Highlights. I scroll down what seems to be about 8 feet (8 pages worth) of highlighted area then the list of programs continues. If I click sort by date, the area changes so it has nothing to do with the last A program.

I'm guessing this is some sort of malware, but have no clue how to find out what it is, and there is no button in the area to uninstall it. It doesn't load as everything in HijackThis is normal, and there is nothing in the process tree that is abnormal.

Any ideas what it may be or how to get rid of it ?

TIA

Jym
