I have tried to uninstall my CF (which was included in the Studio 8 Suite) from my laptop and at some point may want to reinstall(at a later date). When I try to uninstall, the initial process of "closing windows services" continues forever and seemingly will not finish that initial process. I have waited hours...

Any ideas/advice??

I am running MS XP Pro

    I havent' experienced that behavior myself, but you might want to manually stop the relevant CF services before beginning the uninstall.

    Start - Settings - Control panel - Administrative Tools - Services

    They'll be fairly clearly labelled. Right-click them and select "Stop."

    That might grease the wheels...

    This is one way to uninstall CF, allserver_10.html

    Else you can try and double click on "Uninstall Adobe ColdFusion 8.exe" present inside "C:\ColdFusion8\uninstall". Here "C:\ColdFusion8" is the ColdFusion installation drive.

    Before you run uninstaller, first manually shutdown all CF services. Then try to uninstall.
