Hi there!

You were asking how to uninstall your Windows 8 Developer Preview Program. Please try this, First you go to your Home button, go to your control panel and you can see lists of settings including a program with a significant “uninstall a program” under it. Then you go to programs and features and then you must choose and or find your program that is.

Windows 8 developer preview” and a pop-up box will come out saying: Are you sure you want to uninstall Windows 8 Developer program?

Then of course you click yes, and Windows installer will start removing your program in a few minutes, then you can restart your computer after and voila!

Your program is removed.

Hope this helped.
