Uninstalling Software Cleanly

It’s easy to install new software on to your PC. Simply click on the setup.exe or install.exe icon and follow the steps. However, at some point when your PC starts getting slower and slower and your hard drive is so overflowing with programs that you can’t find what you need, it’s time to clean up the system. Getting rid of the programs you no longer need will boost performance and stability, and make things easier to find. Unfortunately, when you uninstall a program, files associated with the program remain in place on your system. You come across folders in Explorer for programs that you uninstalled a long time ago and the registry is cluttered with entries for programs that weren’t completely deleted. This junk builds up and reduces performance, eventually making your system unstable. In this article, we’ll show you how to deal with these problems in no time at all.
