iwant sweetpacks removed from my computer
The best and most thorough way to remove Delat and Sweetpacks I have found is click start then Assesories then select run and type regedit and when you have the window open select edit and in the drop down Find and type in either and click find next. It then will find every one of the otherwise hidden registries in your pc. all you need to do is select each one in the window onb the right and delte. You have to keep repeating this process until it finds then all. I also then go through the list in the left window and Delat folders are deleted also. Hope this helps
I am on an older /vista computer and cannot find the files you suggested I find and remove. Any other ideas. Thanks, [email protected]
