Add/Remove Programs should be all you have to do. I have never had any problem with it before.

You will need to do a full uninstall of the desktop manager and then do a clean install. For the uninstall, go through the removal process through the add/remove programs. Then go in the windows explorer and remove the RIM folder. You also have to edit the registry to remove all BB/rim references. Some of this depends on the desktop manager software you are using.

I would do a search on doing a full uninstall. Your provider may also have info on this too. I have had to do this a number of times due to various problems computer and desktop software problems.

See the 'How to Perform a Clean Uninstall/Reinstall of BlackBerry Desktop Software' post for complete instructions. They may or may not help, but worth a try.
