FAT32 is a file system.
It defines the structure of the formatting on your hard drive.

There are several ways to delete programs:

Add / Remove programs from the Control Panel;

The un-installer (sometimes install) for the actual program;A 3rd party un-installer;

Physically deleting the files and registry settings for the program.

As to himem.sys, are you getting an error?
If so, the file is likely missing.
If you are just trying to locate it, you may need to set the WindowsExplorer view options to allow you to see hidden and system files.

Depending on your version of Windows, you can restore most system files by running the system file checker (SFC) from the run box on the start menu.
You can either let it scan for files, or choose to replace a specific file.

Fat16 and FAT32 are not programs; FAT16 & FAT32 are partitions volumes; Fdisk is the program that will allow you to create or delete those partitions.

If you can not find the himem.sys you can copy it from any other pc or download it from www.boot.com or e-mail me back and I'll help you.

Good luck,

@lberto

Hey guys, I dont know how you came up with so much to write when if a user is asking how to delete a PROGRAM with a FILESYSTEM he/she probably isn't asking the right questions. We first need to know what he/she is asking. Deleting is no different with a different file system, at least not in a Microsoft OS. Himem is another issue completely.

To the dude or chick who asked the question, sorry these guys cant be more helpful to your level of experience instead of running off at the mouth tohear themselves talk quickly and geeky enough. Even though I'm a geek myself, we must remember that tech support is 90% communication, 10% technology when speaking to the end-user to have them understand anything. No question is a stupid one or itwould have not come up.
Please email me if you need additional help, which I'm sure you would. Also, some advice, when asking a question like this, be sure to include:
1. The environent you are using (windows 95, windows 98, dos, nt, etc.)
1. The end-result you desire
2. The steps you have taken so far

This will allow geeks to respond better :)
Thanks for the question.
Email me for some more help.
