Why Uninstall Programs in Windows?You might want to uninstall software on your computer to free up hard drive space or if you are, for example, replacing one antivirus program with another.
Enter the Window's Control PanelCLICK Start / Control Panel, or if in classic view, CLICK Start / Settings / Control Panel
To check what mode you are in, you can right click on the start menu and go to properties. Here you can choose the classic start menu which I actually prefer.
Once you click on the control panel, double click 'Add or Remove Programs.'
Find a Program to UninstallYou can see that the top icon, 'change or remove programs' is selected. Scroll through the list until you find the program that you want to install.
Uninstall the ProgramHighlight the program and click 'Change/Remove.' Depending upon the software you will be guided through a very quick wizard making sure that you want to uninstall or make changes to the program. Once the program is uninstalled you'll see it has been removed from the list.
