    Need help removing "ghost" programs from Start Menu


    Hi! New member... Now that that's done, I know the title gives me no justice but I don't know what else to call it...

    Basically I recently repaired my old Win10 OS with a new Win10 iso. Everything worked like a charm except for one thing... I now have program icons from the previous install and I can't get rid of them! I tried to right-click and uninstall and everything else I can think of....

    I've included some screen shots...
