    Hi Varma,

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    To uninstall using powershell:

    1.     Using the Get-WmiObject Method

     use the following command (replace "ProgramName" with the actual program name):  

    Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product | Where-Object { $_.Name -eq "ProgramName" } | ForEach-Object { $_.Uninstall() }
    
    

      2.     Using the Uninstall-Package Command:

    • This method is useful for hidden or unknown programs.
    • To directly remove a target program, open PowerShell and run:
    Get-AppxPackage *ProgramName* | Remove-AppxPackage
    

      To Download and Install NVM via PowerShell:

    1. NVM is not directly available for Windows, but we can use its Windows counterpart called “nvm-windows.”
    2. Follow these steps:
    • Step 1: Head over to the nvm-windows repository.
    • Step 2: Click on “Download Now!” to get the latest version
    • Step 3: Locate the installer on your computer and run it. Follow the installation wizard.
      • Step 4: Open PowerShell or Command Prompt and run:
    nvm -v
    

    Remember to restart your PC after uninstalling
