Hi Folks,
I had need for speed underground installed on my pc and it wont uninstall. Its taking up room and i never use it.
Any ideas?
I have gone through the usual - add/remove programs. Doesnt work.
Standard 'uninstall' options through the actual program.

Cheers,

Fuzzyfot

Can you find the folder in programme files, if yes, move it to my documents and reboot

Check the PC is running properly (24 hours)

If everything runs, send the folder from my documents to the recycle bin, leave it there for another 24 hours

If everything is running properly, delete it from the recycle bin

If that doesnt work, try taking your computer into safe mode with networking and try to uninstall it. You can do this by:

>Shutting your pc totally down>Reboot and start tapping F8 in the initial startup>You will use your arrow keys and go up to Safe Mode with Networking and then try and go to add or remove programs to remove it.

Let us know how it goes
