Default How do I uninstall PT10? No 'Uninstall' option in Control Panel

Why is this so difficult? All versions of PT came with an uninstaller. I do not see one in my program folder, and the only option in the control panel is REPAIR. There is no "Uninstall". I was ready to upgrade to 10.2

How do I uninstall 10 to upgrade to 10.2?

Seems like there was a thread on this a while back...the solution was to click "repair" and you would then be given an option to "completely remove" (or something similar)...

Just rockin'...what more is there?

9 times out of 10, it takes a complete reformat to remove Pro Tools from your system. At least, that's my experience of it.

Go to Uninstall a Program, right-click on PT10 and select repair/modify, then you can choose remove(or uninstall) on the next window. Make sure you select to remove the HD driver as well(especially if you are trying to update to 10.2). Drive imaging is an excellent alternative that I recommend to everyone('scuse me while I jump on my soapbox). Save a drive image of just the OS with all tweaks, another with just Pro Tools(no 3rd party stuff) and a 3rd image with everything. That way, you can get back to a point with a minimum of fuss(and wasted time). I also keep a cloned system drive of my working system drive(so I can recover from a total crash in minutes...actually in seconds since my hard drives are all in tool-less drive cages).

If Albee's answer does not work, double click the setup .exe and choose uninstall from there.
