How To Uninstall Programs Manually for Windows

Should be noted that sometimes the Add/Remove Programs fails because the application/program has already been deleted or cant uninstall automatically from add / remove program, but the list of applications still displayed just does not reflect that.
Let me show you how can i remove manually this program from my computer.
  • Find the directory for the application and delete all the files in the directory.
  • Delete the directory. Here are step by step how can i remove this program. ( Ex: folder name VIP)
  • Go to start menu and run.
  • Type regedit
    • navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE and find the folder VIP and delete the folder.
    • navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE and find the folder VIP and delete the folder.
    • Some applications have services like autoupdate program.  If so, go to  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services, identify and remove the service.
    • To remove the program from the entry Add/Remove Programs ( if they still exist ) go to  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and find the folder VIP and delete the file.
  • In Windows Explorer, go to the configuration of the individual user and delete program references. Communal to check would be:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and delete relevant entries.
    • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs and delete relevant entries. example folder VIP
    • C:\Documents and Settings\PutYourWindowUserID\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and delete relevant entries.
    • C:\Documents and Settings\PutYourWindowUserID\Start Menu\Programs and delete relevant entries.
  • If no entry was found in the previous step and the application will automatically launch, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows and delete the entry.
