How to Uninstall Programs in Windows XP

Removing applications is generally the same in all versions of Windows. Just follow these steps to uninstall programs you no longer want to use in Windows XP.

1Choose Start→Control Panel→Add or Remove Programs.

Just be careful! If you click the Add or Remove Programs link, there are some programs that will simply be removed with no further input from you. Be really sure that you don’t need a program before you remove it.

2Click a program and then click the Remove button.

You can find the Remove button in the resulting Add or Remove Programs window.

3Click Yes.

If you’re sure that you want to remove the program, click Yes in the confirmation dialog box. A dialog box shows the progress of the procedure; it disappears when the program has been removed.

4Click the Close button.

This closes the Add or Remove Programs dialog box.
