"Get rid of a cluttered computer"
Stuck with unwanted apps?
When was the last time you played that one video game you bought two years ago? Or how about that program to edit photos you never used? If you find that there are a couple of applications that are either outdated or you simply don’t use, then you can do yourself and the computer a favor and uninstall the culprit using up that precious space on your hard drive.

If you find that sometimes you can't remove programs from your computer, we have all the top tips you need. Most programs can be relied on to act with reasonable decency when asked to remove themselves from your computer. That's what the built-in uninstaller is for, after all - but sometimes things go wrong, or programs appear to come with no installer at all. What can you do then? You don't want it cluttering up your computer, so how do you get rid of it? In this guide we'll show you what to do when you can't remove programs in XP, Vista or Windows 7.
Here are some quick and easy tips:
- Check Control Panel
All program installers should be registered in the Add or Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Windows 7/Vista) Control Panel. Check here first for the program in question - some may appear in the "View installed updates" section, such as Internet Explorer 8 in Vista (look in the Microsoft Windows section). If you see an entry, but can't remove the program from Add or Remove Programs due to an error, keep reading for an alternative solution.
- Search for installer
If you can't remove a program from Control Panel because there's no entry, see if the uninstall utility exists elsewhere. To do this, click Start > All Programs and check the program's shortcut folder for a possible uninstaller. If nothing is found, look inside the program's main folder for a program like uninst/uninst.exe or unwise/unwise.exe. Also look for any text or ini files that might refer to the program's installation - open these and you may find details you can follow to manually remove the program from your computer if all else fails.
- Reinstall the program
Some incomplete or corrupted program installations can be fixed simply by reinstalling the program over the top of itself using its setup utility. If you're really lucky, the setup utility might even recognize the existing installation and give you the option to modify, repair or - better still - uninstall or remove the program from your computer. Even if it doesn't, reinstalling may recreate that elusive uninstaller

Amazing!, Oct 8, 2013
By Claire S
You know how when you think you’ve deleted programs, there’s still something lurking. That’s exactly what I experienced. It was awful! Time and again I tried to educate myself on doing it the right way. I just could not! Jupiter Support actually showed me step by step how to remove programs completely. I am educated now and I would definitely tell you they are amazing!
Very reasonable rate, Oct 8, 2013
By Shanti T
As a non-profit, our focus is to provide quality service to our members while keeping costs low. During a reorganization, one area in which we realized we needed professional attention was database maintenance. A lot of unnecessary files and documents had accumulated on our servers as a result of overload of information. This expertise was too expensive to bring in house, so we contacted Jupiter Support. We have been very pleased with their service. It is nice to have a direct relationship with dedicated point people who are quick to respond to our needs. The team is very good at what they do and provides services at a very reasonable rate.
Love the results, Oct 7, 2013
By Jason W
I am a small business owner who is clueless with computers. I usually have problems a few times a year with unwanted programs that have been installed. I turned to Jupiter Support for help and love the results. I am a bit slow with these things and they are willing to walk me through the solutions I need the way I need to be instructed.
