Hour 8. Installing Programs with Windows... > Using the Add or Remove Programs Win...

Using the Add or Remove Programs Window

Before Windows, you could add a program to your computer simply by copying a file from the disk you purchased to your hard disk. To remove the program, you only had to delete the file. Things got messier with Windows, however, because Windows expected a lot from application programs. Programs are no longer simple to add or remove unless you familiarize yourself with the proper techniques.

Caution

If you don't follow the proper program-installation techniques, your application probably won't run correctly. Even worse, with the Windows integrated set of files, a program you add to your PC incorrectly might make other programs fail.
