    App Icons that go nowhere...


    So I tried to install a suite but it froze only after 80% of the installation was complete. I closed the program and tried to use it. All of the programs would open but there would be certain commands that would just shut down the program. I am assuming because that part of the program was missing. Well, one of the parts of the program that was missing was Uninstall Suite. So I deleted the entire 19 GB suite from the C: drive. Now my problem is that all of the Icons for that suite in the "All Apps" menu are still there and I don't have the option to delete them. I want to reinstall the suite but it will duplicate all of those Icons if I continue.

    Can anyone tell me where to go to delete those Icons? And also give me an idea of how to avoid this problem in the future. Thanks

    Big suite.

    What is it called ?

    Re-installing might over-write existing files.
