Ditto except I am not computer savvy  so any suggestions on what to try will be welcome.

Depends on what you want to do, dunnit?

For me, if it looks useful, for me, I install it and have a fiddle. If it does what I want, great! If it doesn't, I get rid of it.

To save there being loads of crap being left behind, I use Revo uninstaller, to install and remove them.

Not tried Revo, as I use Ashampoo WinOptimizer, and among its options is to uninstall stuff, which hopefully does a better job than Windows.... :)

One uses Revo to install stuff, coz it monitors everything that gets changed, including registry entries, then deletes them all, when you use it to uninstall. I have the paid-for version, naturally. ;)

I find Absolute and Total uninstallers to work quite well, too.

Yep, my Ashampoo soft ware will also monitor installations, to make it easier to remove everything (I hope), and paid for as well, when it was on offer for about 8 or something. :)
I also have one of their dedicated uninstallers, but don't use it, as the WinOpt does the same thing.
I will look up Revo though, as I might add it to my arsenal....of things.  ;D

I didn't attach this...

I had to zip it, as we can't attach 7-zip files, here, oddly enough.

Downloaded it, but couldn't unpack it.
I use WinRar, but I think I have got 7 Zip stored on a hdd somewhere... :)

You mean you don't use Total Commander?!?!?

Unpacks everything, that, with a bit of configuring.

Wow, I vaguely remember you using that many moons ago!.... ;D
Nope, I don't have that one, as I find WinRar (the cracked version.... :o) does the job for the few times I need it, and had it for yonks.
