I don't believe that it is possible to uninstall the operating system that you are working in. If you really want to get Windows Xp off of your computer, find a DOS boot disk, boot the computer up in DOS, and then format the hard drive. But I suspect that you really want to uninstall something besides the Widows XP operating system, and you have not described it very well. If you are simply trying to get out of "SAFE MODE", then click "start," click "run," then type "msconfig" in the box. Click the "boot.ini" tab and make sure "SAFEBOOT" is not checked. You may also click the "General" tab and select "Normal Startup." Click "Apply" and the comp will ask to shut down-let it do that, and you should be out of SAFE MODE. I hope you will be replacing Windows XP with another operating systems immediately or your computer will not function. This is the operating system that runs your computer. If you want to go to Vista then simply buy the upgrade and run it(it self installs). If you want to load a different OS other than that you would simply format your hard drive.

How do you uninstall Windows XP Professional if it is not in the Add-Remove Programs list?

Windows XP Pro is not a program, it is the OS (operating system), as such it will not be found in Add/Remove programs unless you have upgraded from a previous OS such as 98. If this is the case do this to uninstall XP. # Start your computer to Safe Mode with Command Prompt. You must log on as an administrator or a user that has administrator rights. # At the command prompt, type cd\, and then press ENTER. # Type cd\windows\system32, and then press ENTER. # Type osuninst.exe, and then press ENTER. # Follow the instructions on the screen to begin uninstalling Windows XP from your computer to restore the previous operating system. Maybe you are not upgrading from a previous Windows OS? You can uninstall Windows XP when you install another OS or reinstall XP. Just format the harddisk. Simple.
