How to uninstall a product
If you need to uninstall any of our products, follow the instructions below.

The most recent versions can easily be uninstalled from the start menu.

For example, to uninstall SpeedUpMyPC you select SpeedUpMyPC -> Uninstall SpeedUpMyPC from the start menu. This will remove SpeedUpMyPC from your computer and restore any changes made by SpeedUpMyPC to your system settings and registry.

If you have an older version, you can uninstall the product from the control panel by selecting Add/Remove Programs.

Older versions can also be uninstalled by locating a file named unins000.exe or similar in the product folder and running this file.

I know how to uninstall a product.

But for WinTask, it doesn't have an uninstaller.exe and its not listed in Add/Remove programs. Also, in the Start Menu, when I click Uninstall, it says "This is only valid for installed products" So yeah, how can I get rid of it?

Move the folder to my documents then delete the folder

Run this to clear up

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.

Run Tune Up disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection (without an internet connection if applicable) from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

(Skip this if you do not connect to the internet with this PC) After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
