trouble unistalling certain softwares

well{OS==XP}
i installed software certain of dragging them out some time later but now i have ended up loosing the unistall button in control panel>add/remove softwares!
well i dont even have uninstall software links in that software !
surprisingly softwares show up in control panel>add/remove softwares but then there is no change/uninstall button to click!
also am afraid of directly deleting them outa drive !
any way i plan a format of drive in some time from now but still am wondering if there is any way of removing them!

You can do one thing.
Download some good uninstaller (google it you will find many),and then try to uninstall those prgrams.
Hope this will help.

This is a good free uninstaller. Its small and can run off a USB pen drive too!

Also, there is a class of uninstallers that monitor programs when they are first installed, like what registry changes it did etc. It's a good way to absolutely get rid of the all aspects of the program. You'd need to first tell the uninstaller to monitor the installations and stuff. I havent used it before, but it should avoid any situations of uninstallation problems youd have 😉

no prob! Props to LORD_EC's easy solution of just getting another uninstaller software. Didn't know that it would work. The problem sounded pretty scary 😉
