    which is the best way to remove a game or programe,should it be done with say the uninstall program that it comes with or should you use add/remove programs in the control panel. or does it not matter?

    It's basically the same thing.

    When you remove a program using add/remove program, it basically runs the uninstall.exe located in the programs directory. When you uninstall using the programs own link, it also runs the uninstall.exe. So pratically they are the same.

    yep,but sometimes the program have uninstall.exe but it doesn't give you the link,in that case you can use add/remove programs
    the link the program gives you i consider it as"user friendly :D :D :D :D :thumb: "

    Deleting the un-install shorcuts I consider "idiot-proofing". :D
