My quicken is corrupted. Does not appear in the control panel. How do I uninstall & reinstall

The problem happened about a week ago. I called a number (1-855-[removed]) for quicken support and it was I think a scam and they tried to sell me a repair which I did not accept. Now I can not get into quicken.

    never do a "search" for Quicken Support -
    as the results are mostly paid scammers.
    Always use the numbers listed in - your Quicken Account, or Quicken website -
    What version of Quicken do you think you have ?
