Clean uninstall

Can anyone tell me how to do a clean uninstall?  I have SW 2008 on my home machine, and it suddenly has decided not to launch.  I click the launch icon, I get the hourglass for about 15 seconds, and then the little window with the Solidworks logo and a picture of an assembly created in Solidworks appears as usual.  And then after only a second or two, the image disappears, and the launch aborts.


I'm out of subscription, but my local SW dealer was good enough to tell me that it might be a registry problem, which would be fixed with a clean uninstall and reinstall of the program. 


If you can give me that information, I would be most grateful if you could email it to me at in addition to answering on this forum.


Many thanks
