1. Check your Windows Control Panel: many programs can be uninstalled through the control panel. For instructions on how to do this, please refer to Microsoft’s support page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17588/how-to-uninstall-or-change-a-program-in-windows.
2. Use a software removal tool such as Revo Uninstaller or Geek Uninstaller to completely remove unnecessary programs.
3. Identify unwanted startup programs using the Task Manager in Windows and disable these programs from automatically running when you start your computer.
4. Manually delete any remaining files associated with the program from your computer.
