Removing Software Correctly.
Sometimes when removing software, the software does not always get fully removed. This can be a problem because often background programs of that software are still running on your computer. This can decrease the efficiency of your PC. When you remove software most of the time it just removes the "base" of the program (.exe files).
- Go to the Start Menu, Control Panel, and Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the program.
- Once the program has been uninstalled, check to make sure you don't see the icon on your desktop or the program in your start menu list.
- click on Start, and locate your way to Search.
- Click on Search and in the text box type the exact name of the program and hit Search. (If any content of the program shows up in the Search results, delete the files.)
- Once the file is deleted, it will appear in your Recycle Bin.
- Locate the Recycle Bin and find the file that was deleted in the Search results.
- Once the file has been found, delete it. To make this process short, there are many programs out there such as "C Cleaner" or "Eraser" that will properly delete the program for you.
