I have a program called PC Forest StartMan 1.3.96. I installed it
and then deleted it, but it stays in my list of programs when i go to
uninstall. Do you know the registry setting to get rid of this or how else can
I get it off the list of programs installed in the “add/delete programs” from
my control panel?
This has actually gotten better over time. In older versions of Windows you
were kinda screwed in this situation. Yes, there were ways to grovel around in
the registry, but ultimately the lesson learned was: use control panel to
uninstall programs and don’t just delete them from your hard drive.
However if you’re running Windows XP, things get better.

If you’re running Windows XP, just use control panel to try and uninstall it
anyway. If Control Panel finds that the files aren’t there, it will ask if you
want to remove it from the list.
Answer yes, and it should be gone.
