    I have Combat Flight Simulator which was installed on my XP. When I got Vista all files were transferred from the XP but I am unable to Play CFSim. I have tried 'compatability'. I've been on to Microsoft and they say it is not suitable for Vista and they do not plan to make one for Vista. I want to uninstall it but it is not listed under Programmes and Features to allow me to uninstall. I've been on to 'Help' and apparently if the programme was not written for Vista I cannot uninstall it. It appears under Microsoft Games but there is no option to uninstall. There was no instruction booklet with it.

    best betis to download a specialist un-installer program that can trawl through the registry and such and remove any files associated with the game.
