How do I Uninstall a Game?

Use the Uninstall Tool in the game folder or the Nancy Drew folder. If given the option to Modify, Repair or Remove, choose Remove.

If the Uninstall Tool is not available for this game, go to Start > Search and search by game title. Delete all results.

After uninstalling the game, search again by game title to verify that all game folders have been removed from your computer. Any remaining game folders will be in one of the following locations (depending on the game title and your operating system):

C:Nancy Drew
C:Program FilesNancy Drew
For XP: ‘My Documents’ folder (C:Documents and SettingsUsernameMy Documents)
For Vista/7: ‘Documents’ folder (C:UsersUsernameDocuments)

NB: The folder in Documents contains the saved games for that game title. Deleting this folder will delete your saved games.

Empty your Recycle Bin.

The game is now completely removed from your computer.
