This article was previously published under Q151558


For a Microsoft FrontPage 98 version of this article, see 194232.


SYMPTOMS

When you remove FrontPage using the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel icon (Windows 95) or the Uninstall icon in Program Manager (Windows NT), the FrontPage Content directory still exists on your hard disk.

CAUSE

The Uninstall program removes only the following directories and files from the root Web of your content area:

   _vti_bin
   _vti_txt
   center.gif
   index.htm
                

NOTE: When you uninstall FrontPage all of the data you created will not be deleted by the FrontPage Setup program. FrontPage files that were not created by you but that remain after you uninstall FrontPage are left to facilitate the reinstallation of FrontPage. The files and folders left behind do not take up much memory.

WORKAROUND

To remove all FrontPage Web content from your computer, delete the Content directory after you uninstall FrontPage.

MORE INFORMATION

When you uninstall FrontPage, all FrontPage components (other than the files and folders in the Content folder) are removed from your hard disk. By default, the content folder is c:\FrontPage Webs\Content, although you can change the name of this folder when you install FrontPage.

The default location for the FrontPage program is one of the following:

   c:\Program Files\Microsoft FrontPage (if you are using Windows 95)
   c:\Microsoft FrontPage (if you are using Windows NT)
                

If you created custom files or folders in these locations, FrontPage will not remove these folders when you uninstall it. Uninstall will clear out system .dll files unique to FrontPage and will clear out all FrontPage registry entries. The following directories and all their contents remain in the root Web of your content area after you uninstall FrontPage 97:

   _private
   _vti_cnf
   _vti_log
   _vti_pvt
   cgi-bin
   images
                

In addition to the directories listed above, another directory and all its contents remain in the root Web of your content area after you uninstall FrontPage 1.1:

   _vti_shm
                

In addition, any subwebs you created also remain on your hard disk.
