Question about Compaq Presario Computers & Internet
If I delete old programs from 2008-11 from add/remove programs will it effect my computer. Have windows xp
It really depends on the program you want to remove. If it is something you don't use anymore, then it will be just fine to remove. Be careful not to remove your anti-virus or software that contains drivers ie. display driver software

SOURCE: Uninstallation Problem
Well if you want to delete click start->run->type "msconfig" In the configuration window click on services tab. Uncheck all the entries named symantec or norton. Now click on STARTUP tab and uncheck the symatec startup entries. Now restart the computer and try deleting once again. By the way that access denied message is displayed because the file u want to delete is being used by some symantec service if unselect and restart they will be terminated so that you ca delete the folder.

There is no reason why this should happen when removing a program or software.
Have you tried a system restore?
It doesn't normally retrieve missing files but as it is files specifically related to a program it may work.
Backup everything you want first, e.g copy my documents etc to an external drive
Start --> All programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore
Click Restore my computer to an earlier date
Select a date in bold before the date when you removed the software
Click Next , next
Leave the pc to restore, power plugged in
You can always undo this restore later
If problems, please post results and I will help
Error messages etc.

c:\program files\yahoo messenger, --- look for the folder yahoo messenger.
delete the folder.
right click start button. - click explore. goto programs. if yahoo messenger is listed delete it.
Now yahoo messenger SHOULD not load up on startup and be an phantom on your hard disk.
Please Note: If all fails, boot in SAFE MODE. then do this process. As well, your computer could be having yahoo loaded as an process making the file in use, thus being locked.
google on how to get into safe mode if you dont know how. I usually shutdown the computer a couple of times improperly or press an certain keystroke.
Hope this helps...
