    ..the hard way, but I could not reinstall my BigFishgames for example. I don't know if this is true for everything we install on our computers, but there were files that were NOT uninstalled when I removed Bigfish Game Manager. There were some stragglers in places I didn't know existed.

    The program I found that lists all those files is called Everything, and I downloaded it and tried it out. As far as I know, it list every file on my system.

    Here is the link if you want to read about what it does http://www.voidtools.com/

    What it did do for me, was find and allow me to delete all the bfg (bigfish files) that were hiding on my laptop. Then I was able to reinstall the game, no problem. Hope some of you can use this if you run into what I did.

    I am not a pro, and I do suggest checking with others before you do anything like this, unless you are sure. Some of these "tools" are more dangerous than your problem is, so gotta be way careful what we try/use, Denise;)
