NOTE: Be sure to exit Word before trying to uninstall Pathagoras. As an add-in, Pathgoras is called and locked when Word is running. Until Word is unloaded, Pathagoras cannot be delinked from Word to accomplish the uninstall.

  If you need to uninstall Pathagoras, do so from the Control Panel. Select the Add/Remove programs item. Locate and select the Pathagoras entry and click “Remove.” NOTE: Be sure to exit Word before trying to uninstall Pathagoras.

   There is also an Uninstall button under the Start|Programs|Pathagoras entry.

   If Pathagoras does not uninstall via the standard method or you missed the above notice to exit Word before uninstalling, you can manually uninstall Pathagoras by deleting the "Pathagoras.dotm" from the StartUp folder. Here are the steps:

1.Exit Word. (This is an important first step. If Word is running, so is Pathagoras, and it cannot be deleted while  it is running.)

2.Navigate to your Word Startup folder.

If Pathagoras was initially installed after June, 2013, your Startup folder most likely is:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft OfficeXX\Startup (Office 2007, 2010) or

C:\Program Files (x86) \Microsoft Office XX\Root\OfficeXX\Startup (Office 2013, 2016. 2019 and 365)

On installations before June 2013, the Startup folder is either:

Word 2003:

C:\Documents and Settings\(your name)\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\Startup


C:\User\(your name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\Startup

3.Delete any '' and 'pathagoras2007.dotm files present.

If you cannot find '' in the manner described above, use Windows 'find' or 'search' tools to locate the Pathagoras files. Follow these steps:

1.Exit Word.

2.From your main Windows screen, press the 'Start' button.

3.Press 'Find.'

4.Press 'Files or Folders.'

5.Type '' in the 'Named' field.

6.Make sure that the 'Look in' field is set to your C: drive, and 'Include Subfolders' and 'Include System folders' are checked.

7.Delete any '' and 'pathagoras2007.dotm files that are displayed.

      After you have deleted '' (and 'pathagoras2007.dotm if running Word2007/10) from your computer, finish the manual uninstall process by locating and deleting the directory called "C:\Program Files\Pathagoras". This is the folder that the installation routine would have created 'by default.' If you did not accept the default locations, you must navigate to the folder into which you saved the Pathagoras source files and delete that folder.
