Chapter 2. From Disc to Disk: Installing... > Removing Your Old Windows Files

Removing Your Old Windows Files

When you're sure you want to stick with Windows 98 for the duration, you'll likely want to get rid of your old Windows 3.x or Windows 95 files (assuming you saved them during the Windows 98 install). Windows 98 can handle this for you automatically. Just follow these steps:

1.
Select Start | Settings | Control Panel.

2.
In the Control Panel window, open the Add/Remove Programs icon to display the Add/Remove Programs Properties dialog box.

3.
In the list box in the Install/Uninstall tab, highlight the appropriate option (such as Remove Windows 95 system files [Uninstall info]). See Figure 2.15.

Figure 2.15. Use the Install/Uninstall tab to remove your old Windows 95 files.


4.
Click the Add/Remove button. If you saved your old system files during Setup, Windows 98 uses the dialog box shown in Figure 2.16 to warn you that this uninstall information will be deleted.

Figure 2.16. Windows 98 warns you that your uninstall information will be deleted.


5.
Click Yes. Windows 98 deletes the Windows 95 uninstall files and tells you that you can no longer uninstall Windows 98.

6.
Click OK.
