Re: uninstall xp

According to me this is the safe method to format your pc or uninstall XP. 1> Backup all the neccessary files to some cd. 2> If you format your primary hard drive(the drive on which xp is installed) it will not affect other drives. the data in it will remain intact. 3>Or if you have to format your other drives then, delete all the files of other drives(the drive on which xp is not installed). 4> Try to delete as much files of your primary hard drive. 5> so at the time of format your 35 to 50 mb of hard disk gets formatted, which will definately increase your hard disk life. Now continue with format steps: 1>Reboot your pc and press F8 or F5 (depends on the motherboard) you will get and option windows..... 1)Start windows normally 2)Safe mode . . . Like this.... from this select In this c:/>format d:(drive on which xp is not installed) then c:/> format C; Your pc will be formatted. All the best.

Re: uninstall xp

You can remove service pack 2 from within add/remove programmes, you will not lose any documents, but you will lose the udated security patches which is not recommended. If you mean you wish to remove XP SP completely, obviously the files and everything you have installed on c drive will be deleted as you can only save docs etc within an operating system, as c: is just a partition on your hard drive the files reside within the operating system. If you are upgrading to another operating system my advice would be to use a dual boot system and install the other operating system on a seperate partition of your drive, but you would have to have a fair knowledge of pc operating system installation processes.

Remove from google chrome is a sneaky search engine. it will attempt to take over the search engine you are using now. this happens if you download links or applications that your PC isnt familiar.They usually cause problems right after you install them so you must uninstall them. Ive had this same search engine do the same thing to me. You also need to uninstall google chrome then reinstall along with all your other downloaded search engines. but do not do this with Eexplorer search engine. after you install google chrome with all the other search engines you uninstalled, dont sign in to them for about 3 months. then there is a good chance you wont get them back unless you try to download something your PC isnt familiar with or if the screen pops up and says "this file may harm your computer". your lucky if you didnt get a virus along with it cause that will usually happen. Just be careful what you download.

You have to delete your antivirus from Add or Remove Programs Section (Start->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs-> Search for Avira and click on the right button (Remove). Just erasing your folder will not completely delete your Antivirus.

1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.

· My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)
· My Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail)

9) There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware SE or left alone.

If unable to remove from control panel, then try to remove them after rebooting PC in Safe mode..

Hope this would help you a lot.

Dont forget to rank me up.

Have a nice day.
