Remove micro soft works

  toonfireman1746 22:41 17 Jul 2009

As a short term measure I loaded micro soft works on to my lap top which has vista, it worked but it did not like it.
I now wish to remove it but when I go to add or remove, it keeps coming up that its on a disc and will not remove it, any ideas?

Yes Put the Works CD in, it should come up with Install, Repair, Uninstall. Well thats how a lot of software now works. choose uninstall

The program is still there its says 62.1MB any one any ideas to remove it

It may be a corrupt installation.

Try installing it again before attempting another uninstallation.

Try uninstalling using click here

During the un-install process you may be asked if you want to re-start your computer, DO NOT re-start at this point, let Revo continue. You will eventually get the option to Select All and to Delete - DO SO. You will be given the same options a second time, again DO SO, do not be picky, just accept all that Revo chooses.
After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.
