Uninstall program from Windows Vista

This may seem like an easy thing, but I've found a few people asking questions about it so I thought I'd post the solution I gave them:

1. Click on the Windows icon/Start Button in the lower left hand corner of the screen.
2. In the menu that pops up, you want to choose Control Panel, which will be mid-right
3. You should see an icon for Programs, with categories underneath. One of those is "Uninstall a program". Click on that
4. You will now get a list of all installed programs on your computer. In order to uninstall them, you must first click on the program you want to uninstall, then choose Uninstall from the bar across the top. That will get you to the uninstall wizard.
5. Typically uninstallations are pretty standard, but you'll probably need to click Next or Continue through some prompts.
