The correct way to remove most programs and many toolbars is to use Add/Remove Programs
or Programs and Features
in Control Panel, so always check there first. Important!
Reboot when done and delete the Program folder if it still exists.
Alternatively, you can use a third-party utility like Revo Uninstaller Free or Portable
and follow these instructions
for using it. Revo will do a more thorough job of searching for and removing related registry entries, files and folders.
Keep in mind that not all programs show up in Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features. Some will have their own uninstaller, which can be found in the program's folder. This is by design as some vendors write installation routines so their program will not be included in the Add/Remove list. If the program is not listed in Add/Remove or Programs and Features, look for an uninstall icon (shortcut) from within its program group. Click on
> All Programs (or Program Files), look for the program folder by name, open it and use the program's uninstaller. If it's not there, the next step would be to open Window's Explorer, manually navigate to the program's folder itself, look for an uninstaller file (i.e. uninstall.exe) and double-click on it to run.
In some cases you may need to use Microsoft Fix it: Program Install and Uninstall troubleshooter
to fix problems with programs that can't be installed or uninstalled.
