Hi. Could you give a more detailed description of the error messge. It could be a case where the file is in use by another program.

ok...il try!!

The file i am trying to remove was set up on an account which is no longer valid "cathy"

"cathy" account was deleted due to it being corupt.
When i try to remove the file in add/remove...it says:

Component transfer error
Error: Access is denied

I wouldnt normaly mind, but it is software i need to work my camcorder, i cant reinstall the software as it is already installed on PC, but i cant access it either saying that it doesnt exist on PC!!!!!

It is showing in the add/remove list but cant do anything with it. I have deleted it from everywhere else that i can access, but still on add/remove list.
