    Remove C++ How?

    I was working on a friend's PC Sunday when a friend of hers called, and she ended up asking me how to remove the programming language C++. Apparently it is taking up a large chunk of her hard drive, and was only used by her (no longer around) husband. She said she already looked in Control Panel|Add and Remove Programs, and there is no entry tor it.

    It might not be listed under C - perhaps it's Borland C++, or Microsoft Visual C++, or it might be part of Microsoft Visual Studio.

    A search for *.cpp should turn up any files created by the program and might give an indication of where the underlying program is located or what it's listed as.

    If it's <big>that big</big> you might be able to determine where it's hiding by inspecting the results from the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Treesize 2.0 utility, which lists all directory sizes and can drill down to lower-level directories......

    PS Example follows, but only the root directory has been expanded.
