How To Uninstall Programs Manually for Windows

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.

PC Decrapifier

PC Decrapifier
The PC Decrapifier is a program designed to remove or uninstall a specific list of unwanted software in an unattended fashion. It can be used to clean off most of the annoying software that is typically shipped with new PCs.

How it Works
Simply download the file and run the EXE. There is no installer. If you have anti-virus software installed, it may complain about this program because it is written with a scripting language. These warnings can be safely ignored. Please see the FAQ for more details.

Running the Program
After you run the EXE you will be guided through the process with a “wizard” style series of questions. You will have the choice to pick and choose what you want to remove. It will not begin removing anything without prompting you first!
