• Allows users to uninstall and change existing software packages, as well as indicating how much space individual programs take and how frequently they are used.
• Allows users to manually install software from a CD-ROM or Floppy Disk, and install add-ons from Windows Update. More Info »
• Allows users to change which Windows components are installed, via the Windows setup Wizard, which includes Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player and Windows Messenger.
