    I was just wondering if anyone might happen to know how to uninstall windows powershell. I have looked in my add/remove programs with the Update feature on and I have no listing for it there. I have also checked under my windows directory for anything related to $ntuninstall. There is a $ntuninstall folder in that directory, but their is nothing in that folder.

    I'm wondering about this because I recently tried to upgrade to Windows Vista Ultimate and it said that it couldn't install because of Powershell being on my computer and that I needed to uninstall Powershell. I'm not really sure as to what Powershell does or as to how it effects the stability of the system, but I can't find it and I'm trying to do what it says so that I can upgrade without having to do a clean install of either Vista or Windows 7.

    Ideally I'd upgrade to Windows 7 but it won't let me do that without a clean install and at the moment I can't do that until I'm able to buy a larger hard drive so that I can backup information that I really need to keep on my computer. I've got over 1.5 TB of data that I need to keep, but that is spaced out among several drives and at the moment I don't have a drive that is larger than that, that I can send everything to.

    That's why I'm asking.
