If its not installed, delete it and empty the `Recycle Bin`.

If it`s installed, identify the software you want to remove (write a list if necessary), go to `Control Panel>Add or Remove` and uninstall it.

And the next time you think it`s a good idea to download and/or install remember this time!!!!

The only other way you could try is using your backup or restore disk to get back to a clean system.

do a fresh install of your operating system and start again like I did. Better than having junk on your system that you want rid of and when you do it go easy on what you put on it which prevents you doing a system recovery every so often. You could try a system restore also only if you have set one in the past, have you?
