Uninstalling Programs

When you install a Windows application, not only do you copy the application's files into their own folder, but in most cases numerous other support files are copied into the Windows folder and the Windows Registry file is modified as well. For this reason, uninstalling an application can be a complex procedure. Fortunately, most application Setup programs now offer an uninstall option to automate the process when you need to remove the application from your system. The Add/Remove Programs Properties sheet has an uninstall feature that can help with this process.

Uninstalling Applications Automatically

To uninstall an application automatically, start by opening the Control Panel and choosing the Add/Remove Programs icon to open the Add/Remove Programs Properties sheet—the same sheet you used to install the application (see Figure 9.10). Only applications that provide uninstall programs specifically designed to work with Windows Me are displayed in the list of applications that Windows Me can remove automatically.
