In Windows you can uninstall programs by selecting Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs.

As any program or anybody with a registry editor has access to this uninstall list, the list may become corrupted or even destroyed. In this case you may no longer be able to uninstall programs from your computer! UninstallAbility maintains backup copies of this list and of all uninstall information and allows you to easily restore it if necessary. UninstallAbility can also help you when a program you want to uninstall has disappeared from the uninstall list, but not from your computer. UninstallAbility can restore it from a backup copy so that you can remove it from your computer.

RAMpage 1.6 Compatible with: Win9x/NT4/ME/Win2k Filename: rampg16.zip Size: 169 kb Author: John Fitzgibbon More Details & Downloads
Description: RAMpage is a small Windows utility that displays the amount of available memory in an icon in the System Tray. It can also free memory, in a number of configurable ways: by double clicking the tray icon, by setting a threshold that activates the program automatically, by running it from a batch file or shortcut, by having it run automatically when an application exits. The program can be configured to free a specific amount of memory with each attempt, or to try to reach a set target amount of free memory. It can also be run in the background, (without the tray icon). The program itself uses a very small amount of memory, resources and CPU time. Install, uninstall and online help are included, and the source code is available from the author's web site.
Description: When you install a new program, the installation utility adds new data to your system registry, often UNREMOVED after the uninstallation. You can have a record of exactly what the install program did using InCtrl 4.1/5 or System Mechanic 'Safe Installer'. UNDOReg analyzes the report generated by one of these utilities, and deletes referenced registry keys.
