had previously un-installed the program.I can't find
any associated files on my "c" drive.Any suggestions?

Look first in the Add\Remove Programs list to see if any of the software that goes with that install disk are still listed, and uninstall them (most photo install disks include two or three separate programs and one of them probably didn't uninstall at the same time you were uninstalling one of the others, and that's typical).

USE REGISTRY TO REMOVE ITEMS FROM INSTALL/UNINSTALL LIST

How do I get rid of what seem to be eternal names in my Add/Remove Programs Properties dialog box?

There are a few ways to remove programs from the Install/Uninstall tab (the one that appears when you open the Control Panel and double-click Add/Remove Programs). First try from the Add\Remove Programs list again and see if Windows actually tells you that it will remove it from the list for you.

You can also do it using the Tweak UI PowerToy: Open the Control Panel, double-click Tweak UI, select the Add/Remove tab, select an item you'd like to remove, click the Remove button, then click Yes to confirm.

Don't have Tweak UI? You can still clean out the Install/Uninstall
list, but you'll need to do a little Registry editing. (Note: As
always, back up your Registry files--System.dat and User.dat, hidden
files on the root of your hard drive--before proceeding.)

Open the Registry Editor--select Start, Run, type

regedit

and click OK. Navigate your way to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

In the left pane, with the Uninstall key expanded, right-click any
item and select Delete. Click Yes to confirm, and that item is
officially off the list. Repeat these steps for each item you'd like
to remove, then close the Registry Editor.

When i downloaded the Nikon View 4 update,there was a
"Nikon Registery Sweeper" in the utilities folder.I used this tool and it removed Nikon View 4 from the
add/remove programs window.I was then able to install
the update.Thanks again for all your suggestions.
