I have a programme that I have tried to removed and then reinstall it but it says there is already a copy there I have tried various remove programmes. About a week ago I had to do a system restore because of corrupt XP files

I am now also getting my dial up whenever I go to my doc page etc

It would help to know the program you have removed and how you tried to remove it. The normal procedure is to use the program's Uninstall OR through Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel then delete any remaining files/folders within Program Files.

Running a registry cleaner usually cleans out the last remaining scraps from the registry. See the forum's FAQ on the Registry for advice on registry cleaners - link to FAQs top right of this page. Note that they take a while to load.

Please explain what you mean by "my doc page etc".

You could dig into the registry but for what you want to do you can try this simple Freeware program called Add / Remove Pro' (version 2.08). It's a lightweight program at just 346 Kb. :-)
