Windows 98 does not have the facility to remove the entry. Just ignore it. It takes up virtually no space. If you end up with a large number of similar entries, then you hunt around for a 3rd party utility to remove redundant entries. I think one of them is called 'Add/Remove Cleaner'.

...or, you could try this to remove those annoying entries in the Add/Remove programs list: (1)From the Start button, run Regedit (2) select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (3) select Software (4) select 'Microsoft' (5) select 'Windows' (6) select 'Current Version' (7) select 'Uninstall'. This will give you a list of all the programs in your Add/Remove programs list. Highlight the file and select delete. This will remove the entry from the list. [Platforms 95/98/NT]

Hi Richard,
Go to this page on the internet.

Click on freeware and download the solution to your problem! This will get rid of the entry in add/remove dialog box only. You will probably still be left with some entries in windows registry etc. You could try reinstalling the game and uninstalling it again through the add/remove box, if not then you need a program like Nortons Cleansweep or McAfee Uninstaller.
Hope this helps
