Unintsall xp mode +how

Hello was not sure where to post this so it may need to be moved
I installed xp mode sometime in the last few months (I don't remember doing it) Anyway I do not use it and would like to uninstall but it is not listed in programmes and features can anybody shed some light on this. It is not interfering with the performance of the OS I would just like it to be gone any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank You
Odin

According to everything I'm reading, it should be listed in your programs list to be uninstalled.

Remove Windows XP Mode, virtual machines, or Windows Virtual PC

You should find it listed as "Windows XP Mode" in the list.

Hello Odin,

You might see if installing XP Mode again (step 4 here) to repair it may have Windows XP Mode listed in Programs and Features afterwards where you will be able to uninstall it.
