Q: How to Uninstall Windows PowerShell 1.0 From Windows XP

Hello,


I wish to uninstall the Windows PowerShell 1.0 program from my computer which is running the Windows XP operating system with Service Pack 3.  There is no uninstall option listed in the drop down menu associated with the program folder in the All Programs list and the program is not listed in the Control Panel's Add or Remove Programs page even with the Show updates option selected.


Any suggested work around to safely remove the Windows PowerShell 1.0 program?


Thanks,


Mike

Hello.  Thank you for your response.  Actually, the Windows PowerShell 1.0 program was not displayed as a currently installed program in the Add or Remove Programs list for some reason.

 

I subsequently reformatted the hard drive and reloaded SP3 and all the current updates and the Windows PowerShell 1.0 program was not installed.  I’m not sure how it got installed in the first place.

 

Thanks again,

 

Mike

Hello,

Thank you for your response.

I had looked over the article but for some reason Windows PowerShell(TM) 1.0 was not displayed in the Add or Remove Programs list even with the Updates box selected.

I ended up reformatting my hard drive and reloading SP3 with all applicable updates.

You did not need to reformat your system. 

Go to Add or Remove Programs -> Check "Show updates" -> look for "Hotfix for Windows <your version>" Should have a KB926139 or KB926139-v2 in brackets. Uninstall that and PSx.0 will be removed.

Sorry to hear that you relegated to a system format.

IMPORTANT: Always back up or create a system restore point before making any changes to your registry.

 

This is what worked for me:

Delete registry entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Powershell\


Delete %windir%\System32\WindowsPowerShell


Run CCleaner - Registry - Scan for Issues - Fix selected Issues - Backup(YES) - Fix all issues - close/exit.


Restart was not necessary in my case.

I had the same. Try to reinstall Windows XP Pro with SP3 media (just to repair it) but I received info, that I cannot do setup procedure because of PowerShell 1.0 installed.

And PowerShell was not listed by any way: neither listed as KB929239, KB 926140, KB 926141, nor as "Windows PowerShell 1.0".in Add / Remove Programs listing

But I recovered this topic:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351188%28v=exchg.141%29.aspx  (topic: Uninstall Previous Versions of Windows PowerShell and Windows Remote Management )

and it pushed me to idea to uninstall instead of PowerShell => Windows Remote Management.

And what happened ?

I COULD RUN WINDOWS XP SP3 SETUP ! :-)  So in my opinion, when you don't have directly installed PowerShell - it can be part of Windows Remote Management.

On a Windows XP SP3 that I was trying to upgrade to Vista, I Uninstalled "Windows Management Framework Core" and Powershell was gone!
