This is not up to translator to alter a meaning of original text just 
cause some words in it are not
used frequently enough these days than they used to.

It means that there's an uninstaller of some sort that could be used to 
uninstall a program. Uninstall doesn't mean removing files, it could be 
a lot more. So user can manually undo what's done by installer (and he's 
not supposed to do that) or automatically undo these changes going 
through uninstallation procedure.

That's not true. It's more general than that, it's more like 
"identifier" actually. And nobody says "название файла", that
sounds strange at least.
