When I try to delete some programs with " ccleaner ", it can't find the location. I must have manual deleted my self, so I wanted to just delete the entry so it would be gone. I try to delete the enter but it says " Cannot Delete MIS Installer ". So how do I get it off my list now?

Try Microsoft's own Windows Installer CleanUp Utility:

Piriform software help documentation.

CCleaner is NOT a malware removal tool.

Don't PM me for advice or help! I'll only ask you to read forum rule #15.

programs that cannot find where the location of it contents is at is telling me it cannot uninstall... so i say delete the entry.
when I close the uninstaller it comes back when i use the windows uninstaller but with ccleaner it cannot delete the entry because it is a MSI installer

Reinstall the programs which you are having problems with. This should put the uninstallers back correctly.

Make sure you don't just press delete, that will not uninstall a program.

Either use add/remove programs or a program's own uninstaller.

What are the names of the programs?
