Uninstall Peachtree

Once you have finished using Peachtree, you may wish to remove the program from your computer. This topic shows you how to uninstall Peachtree from a single computer. Note that this topic demonstrates the process of removing the Peachtree software from a computer running Windows® XP. If you are using Windows Vista® the process may differ slightly from the instructions below.

To uninstall Peachtree, open the Control Panel of your computer. In Windows® XP, select Add or Remove Programs. (If you are using Windows Vista®, select Uninstall a program.)

Select Add or remove a program

In Windows® XP, this opens up the Add or Remove Programs window that displays a list of the programs installed on that computer. Scroll down the list to find the Peachtree software that you want to uninstall. Clicking on the name of the program will expand it to reveal more detail about the program. Next, click the Change/Remove button.

Click Change/Remove button

This will open the Maintenance Options wizard for Peachtree. Of the maintenance options available, select Remove and then click Next.

Select Remove option

Peachtree then asks you to confirm that you want to completely remove the Peachtree software and its features. Click OK.

Confirm Uninstall

A progress bar is displayed while the files are being removed from your computer. Be patient - this process may take some time. You will know when the files have been uninstalled because you will see this screen:
