Yeah, a slight clarification...
It can be redundant under MS Windows, because in the Control Panel there should be the Add/Remove Programs section which most people use.
In the past I've found that doesn't always work fully, whereas if there is an uninstall provided in the "start menu" it seems more reliable. Hence that's why I use that - but obviously only if it is there.
Have you noticed editing is always needed for the inevitable typos that weren't there when you hit the "post" button?
