Cannot uninstall program as install.log file is missing

I am running Windows XP Home Edition with all the latest updates.

I am trying to uninstall Cubase SL 2.0 from my PC. However, it appears that the install.log file required for the unintall to work is missing. I cannot locate it anywhere on the PC.

I do not have the original installation disks as I have sold the product, hence why I am trying to uninstall it.

So the windows add/remove program will not work, nor does the uninstall.exe file in the progam folder for Cubase.

How can I remove the program successfully? I know I could just delete all the files for it but I assume it will still be in the registry and will not be removed as far as Windows is concerned.

Is it easy to remove it with regedit and then delete the files? (I have never removed programs with regedit before)

Thanks in advance for any help :up:

Thank you for the prompt replies. The link to was exactly what I was looking for, however, I will also take a look at ARP++ because that too seems a very convenient way to remove programs that are "lurking" around.

Many thanks :up:
Just a quick note: I tried to remove the program using ARP++ but I had exactly the same problem. Because the install.log file was missing it would not remove it.

Therefore, going to do it manually with regedit.
