How to properly Uninstall and Re install sage 50

Sometimes we need to Unistall and Reistall Software Applications for various reasons like File Corruptions, unidentifiable errors etc. But sometimes such reisntallations do not correct the issues. This is due to there are some Files not getting cleared fully with the uninstall process and Registry entries not reversed. To overcome this you may follow the following procedure : 

Using the Control panel uninstall Sage 50
Using the Control panel uninstall .net (all versions 2+)
Delete the following directories
C:\Program Files\Sage\Accounts\ 
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sage Line50
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sage Report Designer 2007
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sage SBD
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sage SData
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sage Shared

If you are using a 64 bit operating system then the above paths will be \Program Files (x86)\

If you are on Vista or newer

If you are using XP or older 
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sage

Note: As these are areas that users would not normally go into the folder C:\ProgramData\ (or on XP and earlier C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\) is hidden.  You can make "hidden folders visible" by opening Windows Explorer and going to Tools>Folder Options>View>Hidden Files and Folders>Show Hidden Files and Folders You need to press the "Alt" button to see the menu in some versions of Windows.

You are now ready to reinstall
Let Sage install .net as part of it's reinstall rather than manually installing it
