Quick Tips: Uninstall software fasterYou tried a few programs you don't like, and you want to get rid of them. We'll help you uninstall them in a flash.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hello, I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com with a quick tip on uninstalling software. Now if you download a lot of programs like I do, you probably got way too many sitting on your hard drive, you could use Windows add remove utility but it's a kind of slow and plodding way to do it. So Jason Parker at download.com tipped me off to a free program called C cleaner, it offers its own uninstaller and works much faster than Windows. Here's how it works, start C cleaner, go to the tools panel and choose the uninstall tab, you will see a list of current applications on your hard drive, scroll through the list and when you find a program you no longer want, highlight it and click the run uninstaller button. C cleaner quickly searches your computer for the program's uninstaller and painlessly removes the unwanted program. C cleaner has a more complete list of programs than the Windows add remove tool and Jason swears it's faster than Windows, so we put it to the test uninstalling Limewire. ^M00:01:00 [ Music ] ^M00:01:17 >> Look at that, it really is faster.
