Un-Installing Software



To remove software from your program, you use the 'add and remove programs' section in the control panel. The 'control panel' is accessed through in the START menu.

When you get to the 'add or remove programs' dialog box, find the piece of software that you want to remove and click it. When you click it, it's section will expand and there will be a 'remove' button. Clicking it will start the un-install process.

At this point, you will be offered one or more choices. Here, you have only yes or no. Sometimes, you will be asked if you want to remove, modify or cancel.

Sometimes, when you remove a program, you will get a message like the one below. The safe thing to do is to leave the file that could possibly be used by another program.

Now you can see that the program has been removed. When un-installing some software, you will have to restart Windows. That's not the case here. At this point, you would simply close any open dialog boxes and you're done.

  • This site was started for pages/information that didn't fit well on my other sites. It includes topics from backing up computer files to small engine repair to 3D graphics software to basic information on diabetes.
  • This site introduces you to macro photography. Macro photography is nothing more than the photography of small objects. It can take quite a while to understand the limitations associated with this type of photography. Without help, people will struggle to get good images. Understanding what's possible and what's not possible makes the task much easier. If you need to photograph relatively small objects (6" in height/width down to a few thousandths of an inch), this site will help.
  • If you're interested in air rifles, this site will introduce you to the types of rifles available and many of the things you'll need to know to shoot accurately. It also touches on field target competition. There are links to some of the better sites and forums as well as a collection of interactive demos.
  • This site is for those who want to install or update their car stereo. It begins with the most basic electronics theory, progresses into basic transistor theory as well as covering virtually everything associated with car audio.
