    To remove files:

    Select the file, then press the delete key on your keyboard. This will send it to the Recycle Bin. If you want to delete it without sending it to the Recycle Bin (really delete it forever, as in bye bye!), hold down the shift key while you press delete.

    To remove programs:

    You will need administrator access to your computer. Go to start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. (You might have to chose "Remove a Program" at this point, depending on how your computer is configured.) Find the program you no longer want on your computer, select it, then click the "Remove" button. Follow any instructions the computer gives you after that.

    To remove spyware/adware:

    For Windows 95, 98, Me, and 2000:Click Start, Settings, then Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. There should be a list of all the programs that have ever been installed on your PC. If you have Windows XP, it's even easier: just go back to the earliest System Restore point that is available.

    To take programs off that have been installed, open control panel and add remove programs. To take out simple files you have created, pictures, notes, text files, etc just right click on the file and select delete. If you have plenty of room on your drive, I would hesitate to uninstall programs unless you have the installation discs or are absolutely sure you dont need the software.

    You might want to give some more detailed information

    for the others.

    What do you want to take off? Documents or programs?

    What do you mean with "take off". Take them off to use

    them somewhere else or get rid of them.

    What is that computer running? Windows?
