Uninstalling a Program

Although as a network administrator, your primary concerns relate to configuring server roles and services, you also have to deal with basic software and program settings. The Programs window of the Control Panel enables you to uninstall a program, view installed Windows updates, and turn Windows features on and off. You can also access the Program Compatibility Wizard (click Use an Older Program with This Version of Windows), which enables you to determine whether you can run a legacy software program in Windows Server 2008.

To uninstall a program, follow these steps:

1. Select Start and then Control Panel.

2. In the Control Panel window, click Programs. The Programs window opens (see Figure 3.7).

3. In the Programs windows, click Uninstall a Program under the Programs and Features link. The Programs and Features window appears, listing your installed software.

4. Select the software package you want to uninstall and then click the Uninstall button on the window toolbar.

5. Click Yes to uninstall the software. It will be removed from the computer.

As already mentioned, the Programs window also provides access to Windows features. Because we are working with server software, the settings for items such as the firewall, the system, and other items such as Remote Desktop are so “tightly wound” with the basic purpose of the server—roles and services—that you will find that when you click Turn Windows Features On or Off (in the Programs window), the Server Manager opens. We will be spending a lot of time working with the Server Manager in subsequent hours, including Hour 4, “Understanding and Configuring Server Roles and Services.”
