Taking Programs Off Your PC


Taking Programs Off Your PC

Windows includes an uninstall utility that takes the pain out of removing unneeded or obsolete versions of a program from your computer. To uninstall a program installed with Windows follow these steps.
  1. Click the Start button, then click Settings (skip this step in Win XP), then click on Control Panel to open the Control Panel window.
  2. Click the Add/Remove Programs Icon.
  3. You should now see the Add or Remove dialog box displaying the Currently Installed Programs list.
  4. Click the program you want to remove in the Currently Installed Programs list box (when you click a program name, the description expands to include a Change/Remove button or separate Change and Remove buttons).
  5. Click the Change/Remove button or the Remove button if Change and Remove are separate.
  6. Click the OK button in the alert dialog box that appears to confirm your removal of the program. When the Uninstaller finishes removing the program, click the Close button to close the Add or Remove Programs dialog box and to return to the Control Panel window.
