    When you go in to the add and remove programs does it say that the list is being populated or is just blank cause it can take several minutes to get the list together.

When you do this try to uncheck show updates at the top, which will populate the list faster and also try with safe boot and remove unwanted software from there

Remove "ask" toolbar

There are two ways to remove the toolbar from your browser.
1.) On the left-hand side of the toolbar, there is an X which you can click on which will prompt the toolbar to ask you if you're sure you want to do this. Select the affirmative and it should be removed from your browser, however, you'll still have the actual program (it technically IS a progam, though it's an add-n of sorts).
2.) You can uninstall it by going to Add/Remove Programs in Windows XP or by removing it from the Programs and Features list in Vista/Win7. You can get to either of these by clicking Start/Control Panel/ [Add/Remove Programs OR Programs and Features]. Just click on the "ask toolbar" in the list and then click Remove.
If this helps you, please help me by leaving a great rating. I very much appreciate it!

How to remove "Live PC care" program that was installed to my PC without my consent? Thanks a lot

If you are using windows xp then you need to access the Add/Remove programs list. You do this by clicking on your start button and then going to Control panel and then selecting Add/Remove programs and Live PC Care should be located somewhere in that list. You then have the option to unistall it.

If you are using windows vista it's the same thing although it isn't called Add/Remove programs, it's called Programs and Features. This will also bring up the programs you have installed and you can then proceed to remove Live PC care. Good luck. Andrew

  2. In the Currently installed programs list, click the Office program that you want to remove, and then click Remove.

AVG wont work nor will my laptop

Looks like a certain toolbar feature was included with the AVG that wants to keep starting. Go to Start button, then Control Panel. In the control panel, click Classic View on the left, open up Internet Options and click the Programs Tab on the top of the Internet Options Box that opens up.

Then click the Manage Add-Ons button. Beside the word "Show:", check under each option from the dropdown menu (Add-ons that have been used, Add-ons currently loaded, etc) and in the box below the Show menu, left click to highlight anything that says AVG, then click the round button near the botton to Disable that add-on.

Also check your Control Panel > Programs And Features for anything that mentions an AVG Toolbar as it was possibly separately installed and has it's own Uninstall Listing in the Programs and Features.

If those don't help, you can try this:

You can try to download and install the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility.

Download and install the Cleanup Utility, then start the program from your Programs list.

***Be careful with this do not want to remove the wrong things or use the Remove All button, or no/most programs will not work anymore***

After you start the program, browse down the list and anything you see listed with AVG, left click to highlight the item then click the Remove Selected button at the bottom.

Hopefully this removes any traces of the installed AVG.

Large space between apps in add/remove programs

Download tweak XP from the net, install it, run it, there is a tab named ADD/REMOVE programs, it DOES NOT add or remove programs, rather, it allows you to edit the Add/Remove program List only, so you should select the "blanks" and remove the from the list. ReClarify: IF you remove an entry from the Add/Remove tab using Tweak XP, It will no longer be available under windows control panel add/remove and if it IS still installed you will NOT have a way to remove the program.

Programs missing from add/remove list

Once you have the "Add or Remove Programs" window open look at the left side and make sure you have "Change or Remove Programs" selected. Also make sure you have the checkbox ticked that says "Show Updates".

As for the other programs in the list without the chage / remove option. You need to first click on the progam in the list to show that option.

Add/Remove program

If your talking about the listed programs on your machine in Windows Add/Remove? If youve done a restore and nothing has happened then the computer is only listing whatever programmes youve installed. In other words if there are six programmes installed it will show only those six. It cannot possibly show anything or something other than that. If your sure you installed a particular programme and it didnt show up then you need help from Microsoft. They are display in that area for a purpose either the user wants to repair a software or uninstall it. Have I misunderstood your initial help?
