Over the past few says I have been trying to install some tools to help my smart-phone and Pc communicate..
I downloaded some programs onto my computer and it turned out that the programs did not work so I started deleting the installed programs/apps and files..only to find out today that their are still a lot of apps and files left over and I checked the properties and they are from Samsung which is the program(s) I want deleted..My dilemma is I'm unsure of some programs to delete that don't say Samsung ,But I think are connected to the main Zip-file..I want to do this safely without deleting crucial app/files..

Thank you for in advance for any help provided

If you are trying to remove programs/applications you should not delete the installation files,you should remove them by using the "Add/Remove Programs options" in the Control Panel.If after uninstallation some programs are left over,then try deleting the files/folders that remained manually.

Else try this Revo Uninstaller

Hello darkstorm:

This maybe too late, but... before installing any new application read/search all kind of known issues - a stitch in-time saves nine

Thank you for taking the time out to help and for the information and the tools.

This is starting to have a snowball effect..I just came from the appdata section and found some files/programs that have been deleted and/or are no longer in use and I would like to free up as much space as possible by removing any unnecessary files/apps/programs..I know the safest way to start this process is going to my (ADD/DELETE) and starting there...But my question is.....what is the safest way to identify and safely remove files/programs/apps/ that have left remnants behind without removing files/apps/programs.. that are needed to keep the system and other properties stable...I understand that I can start deleting files that are obvious to me, but I'm trying to remove the files/programs and all its extensions together without removing crucial files. Some of the files I recognize and others I have no clue as to what they are...Once again thank you for your time..it is greatly appreciated.
