  • Add/Remove Programs in Windows Vista

    So you say you can't find the Add/Remove programs function in Windows Vista?  Well, in Windows XP Add/Remove Programs is in Control Panel under an icon of the same name. But in Windows Vista it has been changed to "Programs and Features".

    To locate the Program and Features function:

    1. Click Start and choose Control Panel,

    2. In Control Panel double click on the "Programs and Features" icon.

    3. Here you can find all the programs and items which are installed in Windows Vista.

    4. To remove any of them click once on the program you want to uninstall and then click on Uninstall/Change and follow the prompts.

     Now wasn't that easy!

  • Hi,

    As you wrote Vista has "Programs and Features" and you really can Uninstall or Change a program that already installed.

    Other question is: Is there any option to Add program? (as it was in previous versions)

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi, you have helpful tips.


    I have a problem situation.  I'm trying to upgrade my OS from MS XP home edition to MS Vista Ultimate after confirming that I have more than the minimum requirements to do the upgrade.  I have already upgraded with the data/programs in another folder called Windows.old.  My problem is


    how to configure the Windows Vista Ultimate so that all the application programs before the upgrade must be configured to run and function properly in Vista as at present, with Vista all those programs are not configured to run in Vista.


    Hope to receive a response from you soon.

  • Thats all fine and good if windows lets you delete, or uninstall a program. What do you do when you are the only user, have administrative rights, and windows not only will not let you uninstall a program, but tells you you don't have the rights to make these changes?

    How do you add a program from a cd that does not pop up when you place it in the drive. This new Windows vista is hard to use in many areas. Thank You in advance

  • Hi,


    I have ,net frameword 3.0 , 2.0 installed on windows vista.

    But I can not see it in Progream and Features list.

    Do you any idea where or how can I see it?

    (One way I already know to go to c:/Windows/Microft.Net/Frameork

    but not sure if that will confirm the proper installation)



    Thanks in advance

  • Joshi,

    Your instructions for removing programs from a Windows Vista computer were very clear and easy.  The only problem is that the program I want to uninstall does not show up in the list of programs.  How do I find it and remove it?

  • Hi,
         I am new to this forum and have the same problem that Trishsz has.  I want to uninstall my Windows Media Player version 11 , and replace it with version 10.  When I try to remove it from add/remove in Programs and Features, Media Player does not show up on the list, even though I definitely have it installed, and it works.   Could you give me some suggestions as to how to find/remove it, so that I can then download version 10, without conflicts?  Thank you!   - Brian

  • I have the same issue with trying to uninstall "Beyond the Red Line" .  It's an enormous file (753MB) and I could really use the space, but when I try to Uninstall it says the No Permission , need Admin rights!
    So I found this site microsoft has and it should help, if I could figure out how to use the info...I'll check back in to write how i either dunnit or failed
