Windows 7: Removing old programs from disc drive

Removing old programs from disc drive

I upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 and I thought all old prgms would be deleted.

Needless to say I was wrong because I see them still installed each time I defreg.

Is there a way to delete them.

Thanks

What programs are you referring to?

Try uninstalling them from Programs and Features.

Welcome

If you did an upgrade, all your programs will still be on the HD.

I know where Johnathan is headed and he will solve your problem.

I, however, feel that you have another problem. If you upgraded, you are going to have many problems in the future, the upgrade is known for that. My advice,is take your DVD (even if an upgrade DVD) and make a clean install. The programs will be gone and so will future problems. If you have an old car and give it a great paint job, does it run any better? Just my opinion, which I submit for your consideration.

If you decide to take my suggestion, just repost and I will help you in every way. In addition, you can, also, go to you tube and watch the procedure, like I did.

Good Luck. We are all behind you regardless of your decision.

To Jonathan_King & richc46

Thank you both for your prompt answers.

I need to run your suggestions thru my cement mixer ( brain ? )
and think about it, not sure if I'm that qualified.

I will return shortly
