1. Use the installation CD itself to remove else

2. Physically delete the VB directory and remove the entry from the Registry
    However removing dlls and others from the windows directory will be difficult
    and risky too.

No uninstall in the CD. I have no experience in editting regitry.
Do you have any easy solution? VB4.0 is installed in my PC.

Simply run the SETUP.EXE from the VB installation CD.

It will prompt you with the following items:

Add/Remove components
Reinstall all
Remove all

Select 'Remove all' option and it will do the job for you.

Try re-installing Visual Basic on top of itself and then use the control panel to uninstall it.

There is no available uninstall option in setup.exe in my CD. I have re-install VB4.0 but it's not available in control panel- Add/Remove program.

Maybe i'll just delete VB Sub-directory and retain the DLLs and registry.

Just wondering - is this a 16 or 32-bit version?

Safe 'nuff to delete the VB directory and all the icons, shortcuts etc.

If you really want to tidy up the DLL's and OCX's etc, use something like Quarterdeck's Cleansweep.  Have a look on;

No more money to spare to buy Cleansweep. Is there freeware similar to Cleansweep?

I have deleted the visual basic sub-directory and short-cut. I have cleaned the registry and related DLL's using QuaterDeck Cleansweep.

Thanks MorFF, I will give the points.
