I'm facing some errors in VS Pro 2019. I already try to uninstall in VS installer but its not removing everything and when I try to run VS, its still remain same.

So, how can I completely, entirely remove everything about Visual Studio from my computer?

    Hi @Nor_ ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    You can run InstallCleanup.exe to remove all installed Visual Studio instances completely.

    If it doesn’t work, you could have a try with the following steps:

    1. Manually delete any leftover install and cache folder you previously installed to
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
      %programdata%\Microsoft\visualstudio\packages
    2. Delete the setup registry key, which was set when you first installed:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Setup
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Setup
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Setup

    Sincerely,
    Anna
