It really depends on what you are trying to get rid of shortman1937.
The best way is to use Add\Remove Programs in the Control Panel or the programs own Uninstall program.
There is no one way to do this as some programs do not have a uninstall and even then they don't completely get rid of everything all the time.
This is a drawn out process that takes patience to do and I would be happy to assist you with this.
