Hi,
This is on windows 2003 server. I have several programs installed. One of
the hard drives on which several programs where installed went bad. I
replaced it with a new HD.Several of the programs that were on the replaced
HD could not be either removed or re-installed. I used the Windows Install
Clean Up utility, to clean them up, then Remove from Add/ Remove Program
(from the Control Panel). But these programs (and their groups) still show
up in the Start --> Programs list.
How to remove them from this list?
Thanks

Delete the shortcuts for them from;

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs
%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs
