When an unwanted program has an "Uninstall" shortcut on the Start-->All Programs menu, is it better to uninstall it by using that shortcut or by using Control Panel-->Add/Remove Programs? Or does it not make any difference?

The programs in question are Netscape Browser and RealPlayer. They came preinstalled on the computer and have never used. The OS is Windows XP Media Center version.

Hello T_Belden and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

As far as I am aware, it should not make a difference which uninstall method you use.
