Don;t know exactly how Vista will allow this, but in XP I change to administrator, open Explorer to the "Documents and Settings" folder (folders view is best for this), and look in the specific user folder's "Start Menu" until I find the desired entry. If not there, look under "All Users" as well.

I just checked my own system and I have some entries for both Notetab 5
and 6 (actually 7 because I have Notetab Light, Standard and Pro - all
v6 and also a Notetab Pro 4.95 I keep around for the odd time I want to
compare how "old" regex worked).
On my system the v6 entries point to where I currently have Notetab 6
installed: "D:\Program Files\Notetabs\NoteTab Std"
The Notetab Std 5 entry points to the previous (and no longer valid
location) where I used to keep Notetab 5: "D:\Program Files\NoteTab Std 5"
Probably, just clicking Uninstall on the Notetab Std 5 will work - If as
I suspect it points to an old no longer existing location I think it
will just remove the entry from the Registry (possibly after giving a
warning message that the uninstall program can't be found).
You might want to get (free) Revo Uninstaller:
When you right-click on its Notetab Std 5 entry you'll see that [Install
Location] option is grayed out but that the [Remove Entry] (ie. from
Registry) is enabled. Revo Uninstaller also has options to locate (and
optionally remove) left-behind "stuff" in both the Registry and on disk.
Having done that you *might* want to make a copy of the full %progfiles%
folder for Notetab Std 6, uninstall it (using Revo), reinstall it at
(say) C:\Program Files\Notetabs\Notetab Std\ (or just C:\Notetab Std\ if
you've no interest in ever using the free Light version), then after
reinstallation just copy the full contents of your backed up
%progfiles%\Notetab Std 6\ folder to where you reinstalled.
Note: no real need to do any of the above except for "tidiness" and to
prevent possible subsequent confusion - the existence of a an unusable
extra entry in the Registry has no effect on how Notetab operates.
Possible exception is that you might have file associations that still
point to old Notetab Std 5 but if you haven't run into them yet their
probably aren't any.
Hope this helps rather than confuses!
