Uninstall NX: Quickest Way

What is the quickest way to uninstall NX on a users computer? I know in the past I had seen someone mention that if you delete some of the program files before running the Uninstall utility in Windows this will speed up the uninstallation.

Particularly for the CAST & DOCS files, it will speed things up

Not sure about the main uninstall.

I have been told (by people who should know) that deleting all the files will speed up an uninstall. I always do it this way myself, so I don't have other times to compare with.

From personal experience it is best to delete the entire NX installation folder before running the remove command.

Without deletion it takes about three to four times longer to remove NX.
