You can also use an unistaller software do to the job but make sure that this unistaller would not remove any registry component. After removing the software, activate your computer’s registry cleaner or registry repair software to make sure that no unwanted components are left. Don’t forget to back up your registry as well. When the computer asks you something about removing “related components”, just don’t remove it. It’s better left in there as it would not harm your computer.

This is not really necessary as it utilizes large space of RAM. To disable this, go to Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs, click Add/Remove Windows Components, uncheck Indexing Service and click Next and then click Finish.
