Uninstalling MatPlotLib (win7)?

I should have installed numpy first, and got some errors installing MPL. I don't see an uninstall in Control Panel Add/Rmv.

I'm working in IDLE in Win7. It seems to me it gets stuck in site-packages under C:\Python25. Maybe this is as simple as deleting the entry?

Well, yes there's a MPL folder under site-packages and an info MPL file of 540 bytes. There are also pylab.py, pyc,and py0 files under site. What to do next?

Depending on the version and installer used, manually remove

C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\pylab.py
C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib
C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\mpl_toolkits
C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib*.egg-info
C:\Python25\Removematplotlib.exe
C:\Python25\matplotlib-wininst.log

The packages dateutil and pytz are also installed along with matplotlib
but might be used by other packages too.

As it turns out, this was easy to solve. What drove me to this point is that the distributor of the software I use mentioned that numpy had to be installed before MPL. I had only installed MPL when I ran into a program that failed. I thought it might be because I hadn't installed numpy first, in fac I had not at all installed it at that moment. Now I was faced with the question of backing out MPL. However, the MPL install had given several warnings about some file missing. This reinforced the idea order was needed. As it turns out order doesn't matter here. I installed numpy and all is working fine. I have no idea though when order does matter.
