Hello guys

I wanted to delete a program, but I saw this message appearing:

The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I have tried many times, even restarted my PC, but still cannot delete it,
any solution or ideas todelete it will be highly appreciated,

Sometimes i think imperator just answers because he can :P no offence imperator, reading through your posts you have helped me once or twice lol.

What program were you trying to uninstall? There are many utilities out there that would help you do it, in-fact a large majority of them are free. But they wont work if the program contains locked files (In which case you would also need an unlocker :P) or if the program is allready uninstalled this might also be the case. It sounds like you just have a corrupt uninstaller however so one of these programs should help. But i would like to know what program you are removing before hand to provide you with the best utility :P

(By the way @imperator. That message is a generic one that appears throughout most modern windows operating systems, not just DOS.)

is not about the program name, is about how to remove it, what are the technical alternative solutions to remove it?

the program is a reminder.. like a calender with alarm,

Well if you looked for the process under the task manager then did a hard-drive search for the exe (Or whatever it is) then remove it, its files and its (registry entries if it has any), also, since you sound like quite a technical user yourself you could locate any of its extensions or shared files that have leaked into other place (Eg. your %windir%).
But i was more suggesting a utility such as revo uninstaller ( but of course you would need to know the programs name to remove it now wouldnt you?
