Would like to uninstall Microsoft Works 9 (trial) from my windows 7 home premium computer.

My concern is that I have heard that when you uninstall this from the add/remove from the control panel, that there are afew items that do not get uninstalled.

If this is true, could you please tell me how to completely remove this from my computer.

I have just installed Open Office (free) on this computer.


Thank you.

Simply use Revo Uninstaller. It scans your computer after running the program's uninstaller, and deletes the leftovers if you tell it to.

I use it all the time, and I'm sure more than a few people can vouch for it's reliability. :huh:

IMHO I would use REVO first. Reason being if you use some thing else first and it leaves some thing behind Revo might not be able to find it to get rid of the left overs. I have used Revo and it has always worked. Use it carefully, follow the instructions. If you check the wrong thing it will be removed also. Windows trial versions of Works, Office are hard to get rid of using add/remove. I have found when removing Windows Office trial using add/remove it left all kinds of things behind and it took me for ever to find the left overs.
