How to Uninstall Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker is a fun software application that allows users to make and edit their own movies. Unfortunately, it does use computer resources and is not necessary for your computer's operation. It is also very hard to remove, but it can be done.

Step

Open Windows Notebook and paste in the following code:

Step

@echo off del \"%SystemRoot%\system32\dllcache_wmm.dll\" del \"%SystemRoot%\system32\dllcache\moviemk.exe\" del \"%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\._\" rmdir /s \"%ProgramFiles%\Movie Maker\" pause

Step

Save the file as abc.bat. Make note of where you saved the file.

Step

Close your computer and restart it in Safe mode. Opening your computer in Safe mode is usually accomplished by pressing the \"F8\" key during the opening splash screen.

Step

Open the \"Run\" dialog box from the \"Start\" menu and navigate to the abc.bat file. Run the file in \"Safe\" mode. Select \"Yes\" at the delete prompt.

Step

Restart your computer and remove any desktop links to Movie Maker.
