If they are really uninstalled, go hunting for their folders in Program Files and in the Users' folders and delete those as well.
Having items listed in Programs & Features that you have uninstalled doesn't affect the way the system performs.
You can try the free version of Revo Uninstaller if you wish. It may clear up the registry entries and so remove them from that listing.
You don't say what problems you are having with downloading but that may be a different problem.
they are still there. They do not get uninstalled.
I have tried to uninstall: Bonjour, Dictionary Boss,Google Talk Plugin,Live TV4Me,PalTalk SuperIM,GE Mini Cam. They all are still there.
Also, I have problems downloading programs as well.
I am using internet explorer 9.
Thanks in advance for any help with this.
