Windows 7: How do I uninstall WinXP mode?

How do I uninstall WinXP mode?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section. But anyways,

I'd need to uninstall the Windows XP Mode from my Windows 7. That's because I cannot play Touhou games properly with it on.

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to go to,

Control Panel and then to Programs and Features Find and Uninstall "Windows Xp Mode"

That will uninstall Windows XP Mode..

Hope this Helps...

Well, I tried that just. Apparently I cannot find the Windows Xp Mode. Hmm.. actually, is there any way to check if I have it? I believe I do, but I'm not sure.

You would know because it must be downloaded and installed. It is free but doesnot come preinstalled.
If you do a search in the start menu for windows xp mode it should give you a link if you have it installed

Actually, I just noticed that because I don't, it gives me problems. And there is no way to download it to Home Premium is there?

Do you have a license and disc image of XP? If so, just download VirtualBox and set up an XP virtual machine there to play your older games.

as virtual box is a hyprevisor and inspite of being a software, it after making settings make Guest os see it like a full fledged machine.The os thinks it a machine rather than a virtual environment so installing xp in virtaul box is same as installing it on a new computer.Obviously you need a licence key for that or your get 30 days activate i guess .
