Yesterday, Ken said he attempted to manually uninstall Windows Live that was foisted on his computer by Qwest, his internet provider. But since it is about a whole group of programs and not just a simple program, it means that Ken need to select a whole list to delete. And he just did not know where to start to uninstall Windows Live until I gave him the following ideas to fight against the whole group.
First, before you set about conducting a Windows Live removal, the whole group, please make sure that all the following applications are not running on your computer.
Second, use the utility of Add or Remove Programs on the control panel to remove the below listed programs or directories:
Windows Live Essentials
Windows Live Sync
Third, find out the two directories of the it in the drive C and forcibly uninstall them with a software removal tool:
C:Program FilesCommon FilesWindows Live
C:Program FilesWindows LiveSkyDrive
Last, check over the registry information of it as below listed:
If it does exist, manually delete them.
In other words, the utility of Add or Remove Programs can actually just remove half of the entries of the program. It means when you finish the Windows Live removal on the control panel, its products would be still right there in your program files of drive C. To this point, a proper and efficient software removal tool plays the most important role in the whole uninstall process.
Enter the Best Uninstall Tool. This program helps get rid of Windows Live and cleans up after it in minutes.
First, it runs the uninstall process bundled with the program as normal.
Second, it scans your registry for any left-over values and gives you the option to delete them. Make sure you double check what is listed before deleting anything. If you are unsure of whether or not your machine will become unstable if the value is deleted, leave it alone.
Finally, it does a similar scan for left-over files, then supplies a similar window for deleting them.
