Thank you Mr Panda. Ahem.

-- Anyway: Windows version please.

Other than that - where did you try uninstalling from? If you tried from a shortcut icon link then try instead from the Control Panel->Add Remove Programs dialog. They should do the same thing - but it's worth trying both to cover against shoddy coding.

If that really doesn't work then you could just admit defeat and delete the WinMX folder in the start menu and in Program Files (or wherever you installed to). It's not really good practice to do this as it will leave behind registry entries, but for a one off it's probably forgivable.

Open windows explorer and go to C:\Program Files\ and delete the WinMX folder and all its contents

as Shovel already suggested.

But nobody likes a messy registery! :eek6:

You lot probably leave your documents untagged and lying around willy nilly, too :eek:

Mind you, I don't have any suggestions, so, erm... :D
