    I have a Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 2, 32bit system. Are there a procedure I should perform after uninstalling to protect my computer from damage?:)

    My question exactly.

    You need to be more specific about what you're asking. Physical damage or infection damage?

    Sorry for not being specific. Will uninstalling programs on computer cause physical damage? What should I do after uninstalling programs or games?

    you can use revo uninstaller to uninstall apps that you no longer desire/need. As for causing physical damage, unless it's a system file, it should be safe to unload, but without specific names, we can't be sure.

    After using Add\Remove Pro to uninstall, I use Final Uninstaller to make sure all of the program is clean (regestry keys, etc). Other than system files to run PC, no damage is done...as a matter of fact, you have more space to use for programs you like :)
