You typed it incorrectly, open the terminal and type this command instead: sudo apt-get purge yumi Enter your password (as you have to do so each and every time you use sudo) and follow the prompts. This will completely remove and uninstall the application and all of the files associated with it as well (purge). Done.

Did you install the yumi .deb file from the webpage? It should show up in synaptic (or even apt), search for it and remove it. I'm not exactly sure what name it will be under, I think it'd be just "yumi". If not in Synaptic try apt-cache search yumi? Purge is not an option of apt-get, just using remove or purge alone should work... but probably not with ...

Because Windows is in VirtualBox, you can't remove the Ubuntu operating system, as it's the host OS for the guest VirtualBox OS. You'd have to install Windows to the hard drive, wiping the system totally in the process, in order to use Windows 7 as your primary OS. IF you've already used your activation key, Microsoft might have a problem with it.

First, use the command dpkg -l | grep team The full package name should show up in the output on the list of installed applications. Find it and use the name listed. I believe it should look like this: sudo apt-get purge teamviewer or, if you want to use a wild card, you can use something like this instead: sudo apt-get remove teamv*

If you downloaded the .deb elsewhere (didn't install through apt-get) then you need to sudo dpkg -r teamviewer

Unfortunately, your only option is to install Ubuntu fresh and wipe out your previous data. That will be the only true way to 'reset your PC' back to a fresh environment.

You can't use apt-get or the software centre, because Feem was not installed by Ubuntu's package manager. I've looked at the installer code, and I can see three ...

As a relative newbie, I lack the street cred to be able to vote, but this worked like a charmal, although I had to go to command line (CTL-ALT-F1) and then reboot to have it take effect.

If you are going to be doing such a wipe as that, just backing up and reinstalling the OS is the easiest way. You could go into the Software Centre and look at what is installed, there, and uninstall based on History or what you have installed. There isn't a script for everything! ;D
