The existing version of the program must be fully removed before installing a new copy or version of the same program.

For removal of an application (Windows 8+)

  1. Press the Windows Key and X together, then  Control Panel, then Programs and Features.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Uninstall.

 For removal of an application (Windows 7 & Vista):

  1. Click on Start, Control Panel, then Programs and Features.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Uninstall.

For removal of an application (Windows XP):

  1. Click on Start, Control Panel, then Add or Remove Programs.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Remove.

 

If the desired program does not appear in the list of programs, you may need to manually remove any remaining remnants, such as related program directories, files and registry entries. For complex programs this can be very difficult as they scatter stuff in many places. The program's vendor may offer a "cleaner" program to do this for you.
