Remove Unused Programs

Do you have several programs that you installed a long time ago, and you want to get rid of them because you never use them. You can use the 'Add or Remove Programs' control panel to remove these items from your system.

This control panel will help you safely remove these programs from your system. Although, there is a catch these programs need to have registered themselves in this utility, and provided some type of uninstall program. Most modern applications register themselves with this control panel, but there are older programs and applications that don't include a method for removing the software after it has installed.

To access the Add or Remove Programs control panel:
  • Open the Control Panel folder (from the Start menu, select Control Panel)
  • Double-click the 'Add/Remove Programs' applet.
  • Click on the program that you want to remove, then press the Remove button.
