Uninstall visual studio 2012 express edition


I've installed "visual studio 2012 express web edition".  I'd like to uninstall it so I can instead install "Visual Studio Express 2008".  There does not appear to be an uninstaller for 2012.  Also, when I go to uninstall programs (in Windows 7), I see a huge list of items the 2012 installer seems to have added to my system.  Please see attached screen capture of all items added to my system.  

What do I need to do to remove all of these?  Do I have to go through them in a specific order to get rid of them?

Thanks in advance,

I'm not sure my file attachment worked.  Let me try adding it here.

Some need to be uninstalled in a specific order, but you do not have to care about that.

In my experience, you can retrieve them in any order. You might be warned from time to time, when trying to uninstall one item, that another item needs to be removed first. If you accept the Message, both will be uninstalled in the right order.

I will give the process a try this weekend when I have a little more time to get through the whole list!  Thanks!
