Hi denka;
I did encounter this problem before and in order to un-install it, you must first re-install it, but unfortunately,since you no longer have the cd, you might want to just leave it there, because deleting the folder will not remove everything but if in case you really wanted to you can try these steps here:

Look for the rct3 gold folder on your C:\ProgramFiles\
delete the folder, delete the shortcuts in your desktop and in your "all programs" then install a free registry cleaner CCleaner,
here is the link
http://www.ccleaner.com/download and run it, it will remove all useless registry and applications,,,,,

not sure if it would 100% remove everything though but worth a try.hope it helps.

Can not uninstall anything I download like games ,etc


It sounds like you may have some software that deletes the uninstall files after you download and install. You can try to restore your computer to new state or you can download this and run the tools section , highlight the ones you want to uninstall and click remove. If the uninstalls are available it will find and uninstall if not it will give you the option to remove from add remove programs. Its also free and will help clean up system as well.

I want to play magic towers solitaire game and I get an x in the upper left hand corner and the game will not play


ok you just uninstall your game from Control Panel and re-install it. After completion of installation you just restart your computer.
Now you can play your game.
Otherwise Update your Graphics card. For that you just read the "System specification file" which is located in your Game DVD/ CD
