Red face I Need Help Again

I wanted to get rid of the Kodak Easyshare software on my computer so I went to Add/Remove and clicked remove to get rid of it or so I thought.

So I did a search for files/folders and it showed 21 files still remaining so I right clicked on each of them and deleted them that way or so I thought.

There are six files that are still remaining and there is NO delete option when I right click on them.

Anyone know how I can get rid of them?

When you right clicked...does it show the properties/path of the files? It should say something like c:/program files/kodak/.....

If you locate the properties by right clicking, go into the path that it directs you to and delete from there.

I recently took out all my kodak software cause I bought a really neat USB card reader that reads the camera card directly from the USB port rather than through the kodak software--theire software program was a pain in the A*&S

When I right clicked on them it gave me 3 options:

1. Open containing folder
2. Copy
3. Extract

So I clicked on "open containing folder" and right clicked on it there and the only options I got were "copy" or "extract".

Three of the files are in C:\i386\DRIVER.CAB and the other three are in C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i38...

It's possible those files are not from the software, but added by whatever program runs when you download from the camera now that the software is gone. I think those are drivers--the interface between your computer and the camera.

That's the first thing I did.
