Populating the list could take ages, you should leave it for at least 5 minutes.
Instead of using the windows utilities, try CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/). Its a great utility for cleaning useless things off your computer like temporary internet files and logs. Also supports registry error cleaning and Supports Uninstall and Startup.

You may have damaged the drive by dropping it or bumping it while writing data. You may have Placed it near a strong Magnet or a Virus has infected it and destroyed the file system.
Inside one of those drives is a 2.5" Hard drive. You could take it to a data recovery shop and see what they could do for you.
Hope this teaches you a lesson: Always have 2 copies of your files.

How to remove SweetIM from a desktop computer? Have already gone to remove add programs highlighted SweetIM it tries to remove the program however a pop-up window appears wih fatal error during...


First off, when you want to delete a program; I suggest getting REVO uninstaller. Revo will not only delete the program using the original removal method; but it looks into the registry for Left Over commands and erases them from there. The other thing you may experience is, your Internet Exployere has been changed from the original opening page to SweetIM. Got to the Gear Icon in the upper right corner of the page. right click, and got to the internet options and make the page MSN.com. Restart the Internet and see if that changes the opeing page to MSN. If so you may have eliminated the Sweet!
