    I've just insalled Disk Director 9.0 onto a Windows 2003 server, but after reading all the messages here about servers failing to reboot after installation, I'm getting nervous and have decided not to risk using it. However, I can't use the uninstall option because the program is not yet registered on the server until a reboot has taken place. But if I do this, the server may well not reboot by all accounts..
    So how do I manually remove all the files I've just installed?
