How do you get rid of unwanted programs on your computer?

I need to free up some space on my computer by removing some programs.


Answer by  LazyPilots (82)

Open up the start menu, then run control panel. Once the control panel opens up, run "Add or Remove Programs". Give it a few minutes to populate your list of programs. This should list the programs you have installed on your computer. Click remove after selecting a program you want to get rid of and follow the directions.

I'm going to assume you have a Windows computer. Go to the Start Menu, click Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, select the program, and click Uninstall Program.

Go to "Add or Remove Programs", where you can choose the programs to uninstall. In Windows, this is located in the Control Panel, which is in the Start menu.

The best way to get rid of unwanted programs on your computer is to search for them manually. I simply look for files that are unfamiliar or suspicious to me and send them to the recycle bin. You can usually find malware running in the background by using the task manager.

Unwanted programs take up a lot of space on the hard disk and this clogs up the memory. Unwanted programs not just take up space but alos do not allow the comptuter to function fast. To remove - begin at start, click add or remove programs, click change or remove to delete programs and open up more disk space.

You can use the disk cleanup wizzard that comes with windows to clean up temporary files and unwanted junk, Or you can use the add/remove programs wizzard to delete unneeded.
