I have problems in Windows after installing new software

Reinstall or uninstall the program

If you are encountering problems with your computer or other programs after installing new software on your computer, uninstall the program and see if the issues persist.

Note: If, after installing a program, you're unable to boot into Windows, try booting into Safe Mode.

After the program has been uninstalled, try installing the program again.

Check for software program updates or new versions

If you continue to experience issues, check the software manufacturer' website for any updates to the program, game, or utility you are installing.

If you're installing a software program or drivers for a hardware device, such as a printer, get the latest software and drivers from the manufacturer instead of using the included software. See our drivers page for links to different types of hardware drivers.
