I'm not trying to be a smart aleck here but why would you install another app when you can just go to your control panel and do all that...? You could even put a shortcut right to it on your desktop.

I've used 3rd party tools like that in the past but only when I've had trouble that forced me to. Isolated incidents and usually on a malware infected pc, IIRC.

i dont want to use windows because i have about 50 programs to uninstall and i don't want to spend 5 hours clicking each one, windows only lets you uninstall one program at a time

Yikes. Ya, your first post didn't indicate you needed a mass uninstall tool, you only talked about not wanting to "hunt it down" in Windows, which I did not get at all. But I see what you're dealing with now. 50 huh? I can only imagine...

You're looking for PC Decrapifier.
It was created as a tool to quickly run the uninstallers for all of the shovelware on a new PC; but, it'll work here, too.
You are still going to need to click your way thru all of the uninstallers - for the most part, Decrapifier doesn't automate the uninstallations - what it does is auto-launch (in sequence, because you can't (un)install more than one program at a time) each app's uninstaller.

I like Revo uninstaller for single program uninstallation. The Free version is good enough. There's a pro version that does a lot more, but at a price.
Generally gets rid of all the registry changes and sets a restoral point for you.

Here's the URL if you want to try it:

www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstalle ... nload.html
