Successful uninstallation of a program from the PC

When we download and install a program, we can end up having short- and long-term problems if the program's origin is legitimate or if the program itself is somewhat sinister.

When this happens, we are most likely getting some malware that we need to protect ourselves from, but more importantly, we may not be able to uninstall the program. Also, to make sure you can't uninstall the program, go to "Programs and Features" in the Control Panel, then right-click the program to uninstall to click the " uninstalls ".

The two that we can recommend are IObitUninstaller, a program that takes care of completely eliminating all those programs that you want very far from your hard disk, e RevoUninstaller, which is quite similar.

Make sure there is nothing left

After you have successfully removed or uninstalled the unwanted program, the best thing you can do is make sure that there are no residual files on your computer and that it has completely disappeared. For this you can type “regedit” into your search engine and press Enter, which will allow you to see the entire Windows registry.


Now, here you have to be careful and cautious, as deleting or modifying something here could mean that your computer stops working properly, so if you are afraid you can speak to a specialized technician. If not, take your time to search for junk files and folders and delete everything relevant.
