    There is no uninstall. Just delete it wherever you save it and the corresponding links.

    gpu-z will create an entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\techPowerUp\GPU-Z
    this entry will not slow down your system or harm you in any other way. feel free to delete it any time though.

    other than that, just delete the exe.
