VLC Media Player
is a free and open source media player available for download from reputable sites like download.cnet.com.
The correct way to remove any program is to use Add/Remove Programs
from the Control Panel or Programs and Features
in Vista/Windows 7 first, then restart the computer and delete the Program folder if it still exists. Note: With some programs its best to uninstall while in "safe mode"
If there is no entry in Add/Remove, then you should launch (double-click on) the original setup.exe file used for installation. Some vendors use the setup file to offer options to repair, modify or uninstall as a separate choice from installation. Restart the Computer when done and delete the Program folder if it still exists.
If that is not the case, there may be an uninstall icon (shortcut) which was created during the installation process available via Start > All Programs > Program folder which you can choose. If not, the next step would be to manually navigate to and look in the program's folder for an uninstall.exe
and use that if it exists by double-clicking on the file. Also check for a readme.txt
file which may contain removal instructions.
If the uninstaller fails or does not exist, then try reinstalling/uninstalling the software. Another option is to search the vendor's web site for instructions, a removal tool
or contact their Technical Support team.Step by step Guide: How to uninstall VLC media player 1.0.0
