    I've can't get rid of a WildTangent icon listed in my control panel.

    I've removed everything that came up under wildtangent using regedit
    but I can't get it out of my control panel.

    Does wildtangent go by any other names?

    any ideas?

    You get wild Tangent from aol or aim... WHen you updated your aim account or first downloaded it you can chosse to download it or not. And i guess you choose to. I would uninstall aim completely and install a new copy of it. That may work. Or use this link homie... step by step instructions :thumbsup: :thumbsup: cLIcKy or try this link also right hurr

    edit : dont know how good they are but i guess they will work... if not try my idea :D

    I didnt get it from AIM however wildtangent tends to try and install its self with almost every internet program. a lot of the time you can't click no you HAVE to click the X.

    I love when programs don't offer an uninstaller and make it sound as if they do something good for you.

    I've had it removed since the day I got that crap installed however that one icon is still there.
