How To Uninstall A Windows Transformation Pack Skin

I have covered a number of Windows transformation packs to give Windows 7 and older Windows versions a unique look. While such transformation packs can be easily installed, it can be quite confusing to remove them. For this reason I often recommend users to create a system backup before their installation. In this post I will tell you how to uninstall a Windows transformation packs/skin pack, without restoring your old data from a system image. Using this method you can uninstall a number of transformation packs including the following:

Skin Packs

In order to remove a transformation pack, it is required to remove all its components. To get started, open Control Panel and go to Add or Remove Programs. Alternatively, open Run dialog box, type appwiz.cpl and click Ok.


Conrol Panel

Select each component of the Skin Pack in precise order to remove the transformation pack. Make sure that you always start with the main component such as “Android Skin Pack”. Uninstalling other items first may result in problems regarding the removal of the transformation pack. In other words, remove the item labeled as the skin pack name first, followed by other items (if any).

Also make sure that all items are checked for un-installation during each prompt. For example, the below screenshot shows that all Files, Extras and Backup Files have been selected for removal.

Uninstall Components

Before uninstallation, you may also be asked to remove other backup files of the skin pack. Click YES to avoid leaving any traces of the transformation pack.

Remove Backup files

Once uninstallation is complete, restart your computer for the changes to take effect.


The above mentioned process should help you easily remove a Windows transformation/skin pack without the hassle of resorting to a complete wipe and load installation or restoring files and folders from a system backup image.
