I think this is the right place for this. So I had steam installed on a hard drive on this laptop before, but forgot to uninstall pertinent programs before reformatting it. Now my system believes these programs to exist, either on the nonexistent D: drive (which is now named F:) or in the case of steam, it doesn't even list a location for it. Running the steam install program just returns an error about invalid directory D:, and I cannot uninstall it from add/remove programs to remedy it because it says "Not enough disk space". Well of course there isn't enough, it doesn't exist anymore!
I even went so far as to use regedit, following the manual steam uninstall guide. However, Steam still shows in add/remove programs, and has no location, therefor it will not completely be removed. How can I solve this?
Note: This is also true for any programs (i.e. games) I had installed on that drive as well via steam. If I can remove steam, though, I should be able to repeat the process on those programs. Hopefully.
EDIT: And I can't contact steam support because the captcha image verification system just keeps saying I entered it wrong...
