How to uninstall programs and software in Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10

If you no longer require a program or piece of software on your PC, you should uninstall it to free up disc space. If the program has components that run in the background, you may also speed up your computer by uninstalling it too. This video will show you an example of a typical uninstallation process in Windows Vista. The process will be slightly different for every piece of software, but if you follow the guidelines shown in the video, you should have no problems.

Windows 8 or 10 users – although this video was recorded using Windows Vista, the process is very similar in your operating systems. Windows 8 users should search for “control panel” on the Start screen, while Windows 10 users can search on the search bar. All the other steps are the same.

Windows 7 users – although this video was recorded using Windows Vista, the process is virtually identical in your operating system.

Windows XP users – If you surfed on to this page looking for a tutorial on how to uninstall programs on your operating system, click here.

Additional notes

Unfortunately not all uninstaller scripts are written as well as they should be, that is why you should make an effort to ensure that the program you are uninstalling is not still running on your PC. The Task Manager can help with this, to see our Task Manager tutorial, click here.
