You should first try to look for the uninstall option for the software package in the start menu and remove or uninstall it in that way. If its software that you have installed recently and is presenting problems for your system you can use the system restore option which is found by clicking start then all programs then accessories.......(this is on a windows xp operating system) thereafter follow the instructions and restore to a date before you installed that troublesome software package. Be warned this option will also uninstall all other software installed after that date. Another option if you are really desperate is just to simply go to my computer then into your harddrive (usually C:) then into program files, then find the folder for that software and delete it (make sure its the correct 1)

Try running the program first and seeing if there is any option to remove it that way. If there is not, then you will have to delete all the program data manually.
Enter the C:// drive and look for a file called Program Files. Look for the folder with the name of the program or the program's publisher. If you find the program's, delete the folder and if your find the publisher, enter that folder and delete the program's folder. Some newer systems have Program Files (x86) or (x64), so check there too.
Also, turn on viewing of hidden files. Depending on your operating system, there are multiple ways to do this, google "Viewing hidden files in (insert operating system)". After these are revealed, go back to the C:// drive and enter Documents and Settings, followed by your username. A folder should now be seen which is a lighter color and looks different from others name Application Data. Enter this hidden file and delete the Program folder or enter publisher then delete the program folder.
I hope this helps and apologize if it does not,
-Robert

WinFax Pro isn't listed in add/remove programs. Why not?


If you don't see "WinFax PRO" or "Symantec WinFax PRO" in your Add/Remove programs listing, this indicates a. You don't have it installed (or you uninstalled it) or removed the program entry from the Add/Remove Programs List or b. You have a partial, or corrupt installation. Visit http://www.getfaxing.com/forums if you have specific questions on WinFax PRO.

That is the problem. How do you uninstall it? Because the Manual doesn`t give any information as to how it`s done.


Uninstalling depends on several things.
If you used "Add & Remove Programs" to install (some programs automaticly register with "Add & Remove Programs") you can just go to "Add & Remove Programs" and choose "Remove Program"
If that option isn't available, look in the programs folder for an uninstall program (often listed as "unwise")
If neither of these work you'll have to do a manual uninstall. This takes some advanced understanding or the operating system to do without risking messing up the operating system. You'll need to delete the program(s) manually then use the registry editor to remove the references to the program. Be sure to back up the entire system first and then the registry before beginning (one bad key stroke can corrupt the entire OS).
Note: I didn't give step-by-step instructions on the manual uninstall because if you don't already know how you shouldn't try.

How do you uninstall a program from a palm treo 750?


You need activesync
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx

ActiveSync’s Tools >Add/Remove Programs screen lists all the programs that have been installed on your device. To uninstall a program, uncheck the box next to it and click on OK. To reinstall a program, click on the empty box next to it and click on OK. Do not click on the Remove button. Here's how to do it: If you used ActiveSync to install a third-party program to your Windows Mobile device, you can uninstall the program quickly from your PC.
  1. Make sure your Windows Mobile device is connected to your PC and ActiveSync is running.
  2. From the PC’s ActiveSync Window, click on Tools >Add/Remove Programs. This opens the “Add/Remove Programs” dialog box, which displays a list of third-party programs you have installed on your device.
  3. To uninstall any of the checked programs, click on the box to uncheck it and hit OK—ActiveSync will do the rest.

Reinstalling programs you’ve uninstalled Once you’ve installed a program using ActiveSync, the necessary installation files are saved on your PC. If you uninstall the program as described above, you can use the Add/Remove Programs menu to reinstall it at a later time. Uninstalled programs appear in the Add/Remove Programs list as items with unchecked boxes. To reinstall it, click on the check box next to it and hit OK. ActiveSync will reinstall the program automatically. Note that files in CAB format can be downloaded directly to a device and installed, so they will not appear in the Add/Remove Programs list. In addition, some freeware programs are installed by using ActiveSync’s Explorer to copy the program file to your device. Those also do not appear in the Add/Remove list. WARNING: Do not click on the “Remove” button at the bottom of the Add/Remove Programs screen unless you never again plan on using the program. This completely removes the necessary installation files from your PC and you won’t be able to reinstall the program by checking the box.

I can not download or remove or add any new programs or msn


There is another way of getting rid of programs in your computer other than going to your Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs menu. Try to locate the where the program is installed. If your computer has more than 1 partition (e.g. Local Drive C, Local Drive D, and so on), see which partition has that program. Use Search function from your Start menu (located on the lower left of your screen), click on All Files & Folders then 2 rectangular white boxes will appear. On the 1st box you type the name of the program you are looking for then click on Search button below. Once the results are displayed, right click on the listed program (it should exactly be the program you wish to remove, okay?) & choose Open containg folder. Once there, you can now manually delete each file & delete the folder itself. If there are files that Windows won't let you delete, try renaming them by changing their filename extension. This is especially true with files having a .dll at the end (those are driver files, they say). Change .dll into .txt then hit Enter key. If still you can't delete them after changing the filename extension, you may have to restart your computer & go back to those files to see if you can delete them already (they should NOW be deletable). Once all files & the folder containg it are gone, go to your Control Panel's Add/Remove menu. Click on the program you were trying to remove to highlight it then click Remove button. It should display a dialog box saying, "This program or the folder containing this program have been removed. Do you wish to remove it from this list?" Select YES.

I hope this will solve your problem. Let me know if it worked on your computer, okay?

Large space between apps in add/remove programs


Download tweak XP from the net, install it, run it, there is a tab named ADD/REMOVE programs, it DOES NOT add or remove programs, rather, it allows you to edit the Add/Remove program List only, so you should select the "blanks" and remove the from the list. ReClarify: IF you remove an entry from the Add/Remove tab using Tweak XP, It will no longer be available under windows control panel add/remove and if it IS still installed you will NOT have a way to remove the program.

Delete from add delete at control panel


The only way to modify the add/remove programs list is to edit the registry. If you are uncomfortable doing this, get someone to help who is, or just leave the registry alone.
It's best to back up the registry in case you make a mistake.
To back up your registry, see this article.

On to the fun part. Follow these instructions exactly. Note: this applies to Windows XP only. If you have Windows Vista, please modify the question.
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK.
  3. In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
  4. In the left pane, click the Uninstall registry key, and then click Export on the File menu.
  5. In the Export Registry File dialog box that appears, click Desktop in the Save in list, type uninstall in the File name box, and then click Save.
  6. Each key listed under Uninstall in the left pane of Registry Editor represents a program that is displayed in the Currently installed programs list of the Add or Remove Programs tool. To determine which program that each key represents, click the key, and then view the following values in the details pane on the right: DisplayName: The value data for the DisplayName key is the name that is listed in Add or Remove Programs.

    -and-

    UninstallString: The value data for the UninstallString key is the program that is used to uninstall the program.
  7. After you identify the registry key that represents the program that you removed but which is still displayed in the Currently installed programs list of Add or Remove Programs, right-click the key in the left pane of the Registry Editor window, and then click Delete.

    Click Yes in response to the "Are you sure you want to delete this key and all of its subkeys?" message.
  8. On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
  9. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.

    In the Currently installed programs list, verify that the program whose registry key you deleted is no longer listed.
  10. Do one of the following:
    • If the program list is not correct in Add or Remove Programs, double-click the Uninstall.reg file that you saved to your desktop in step 5 to restore the original list of programs in the registry.

      -or-
    • If the program list is correct in Add or Remove Programs, right-click the Uninstall.reg file on your desktop, and then click Delete.
