Windows 7: How to uninstall 7-Zip

How to uninstall 7-Zip

I installed it recently and have had black screens with white lettering "Do you want to run Windows normally". 7-Zip ("7z", an application) does not offer Uninstall when Right-Clicked on it. I could experiment with "Permanently shred with AVG" (my antivirus) but would that do it? I would prefer a conventional uninstall procedure for safety's sake.

So, what to do please?

Have you tried from Control Panel/ Programs and Features?

Programs and Features - Uninstall or Change a Program

Which version 7-Zip did you install?

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Use Geek Uninstaller to remove 7-zip.

GeekUninstaller | GeekUninstaller

Run the program and find 7-zip in the list of programs. Double click the 7-zip entry.

Let it scan for leftovers and delete if found.

Thanks, pbcopter. I hadn't yet found that. It worked.
Thanks also to Callender. I have put GeekUninstaller away for future use.
