    Microsoft Works 8.5 plus others.

    I am trying to uninstall Works 8.5 via add/remove programs but have been asked to insert a disk; which I do not have due to the software being pre-loaded. Is there a solution to this ? Also I have software for other applications: how do I remove their Microsoft counterparts ?

    It may have become corrupted. Are you able to reinstall Works by any chance? If so do it, and use a repair option if offered. Then after a reboot the uninstall should work.

    Alternatively try the Control Panel method in Safe Mode (reached by tapping F8 repeatedly while booting up).

    Also, there is always CCleaner which can often uninstall something that refuses to go.

    Not sure what you mean by

    Exactly what is it you refer to? Removing Windows Components can be dangerous, but some can be disabled or turned off I suppose. Please be more specific.
