Windows 7: How to delete programs from a partition

How to delete programs from a partition

Hi,

I hope someone can assist me here.

For some time I have been installing software to a partition on a second hard drive to keep my main C: drive free of clutter. Now I do not know how to remove any of these programs because Control Panel/Programs and Features only lists the programs installed on C: Drive.

Can anyone suggest a way to do this please?

Thanks,

Roger

If the program has a Start Menu folder, often there's an Uninstall shortcut. If not, go to the install folder. If there's an uninstall program it's usually named either uninstall.exe or unwise.exe.

If all else fails you can delete the install folder then use CCleaner to remove references to it from the registry by cleaning the registry(recommend checking the backup registry option to be safe. CCleaner is one of the safer registry cleaners.)

Or you might try a 3rd party uninstall program. But some of those can be aggressive. I'd try the simplest solutions first.
