Can anyone please tell me what the correct way to delete some software if it is not in Windows Add and Remove Programmes? My Son has downloaded 'FlashGet' and have had problems ever since, so it needs to go! Grateful for any advice Thanks
If you know where the software was installed then look in that folder. Generally speaking, each program has a program within itself called something like 'Uninstall.exe' or 'Unwise.exe' or something to this effect. Double click the program and it should remove your software.
If there are loads of files in the folder, press F3 and the find box should appear. Type 'Uninstall' into the box and if its there it'll appear, do as above and it should work.
It does not help the current situation BUT, from now on, teach your son to create a "System Restore point" before installing anything. This way, without an uninstall either in the control panel or within the programme, you can get your PC back to were it was prior.
