The command line in the Windows 7 makes it very easy to uninstall the applications without using the GUI. Although, it seems little hard to remember the command for the very first time, it becomes more and more handy and fast to uninstall applications once you get used to it. You don’t have to open Add or Remove programs all the time to uninstall applications. For this, we have to use WMIC (Windows Instrumentation command-line interface).
To uninstall applications:
1. Type Windows+R and type CMD to open command prompt.

3. Execute “product get name” to list the installed applications.
4. Execute “product where name=”name of the program” ” call uinstall to uinstall a program.
