Hi, guys...just looking for opinions on how some of you may be approaching this.
I'm writing a short piece for our external knowledgebase that is used
by our customers. They are not techy...anyone with phone service could

The article is to uninstall a small application that we no longer
support, and therefore are advising them to uninstall it.
The issue is, we expect that some of the people may be
computer-novices and the instructions for different Windows OSs for
uninstalling are pretty different. For instance, Windows 7 doesn't
have a Start button.
