How do i remove a dos program from my hard drive

Specs: Windows 7
I installed a dos program and now I am trying to remove it. I tried the command prompt and the wmic thing and looked in the list of programs it populated, but the program does not show up in the list. Although it does show up in the c: programs listing on my hard drive. Do I just delete the folder containing the program exe files? or is there something else to I have to do to remove it

No idea.

After sending the folder to the Recycle Bin, do a search of the hard drive & then the registry.

Are you sure you know what folder to delete? A dos program won't install in C:\PROGRAM FILES unless you specifically tell it to.

Yes, The folder with the .exe file in it. But I am not sure what you are asking, you confused me .

Just curious why you wish to uninstall it...did it not work properly under Windows? Taking up too much space? Or just unneeded?

Windows usually installs software in c:\program files; Dos doesn't. Most of the time it'll be in a folder on the root drive. For example software called 'eight in one' might be installed in C:\8in1. (That's just an example, I'm not saying that's where it's at.)

I was a little concerned you might just start deleting folders before you were absolutely certain.
