How to uninstall one python out of two installs

  anaconda, anaconda3, conda, python-3.x, windows

I am on WINDOWS10
On my computer I installed anaconda and Python. Later, I installed a big commercial application that installs its own python and anaconda.
Since the two are interfering, I want to uninstall the old one completely. I want to keep only the one with commercial application.
I was able to progress somewhat by removing e:anaconda3 from my path(my old install).

My environment description/current state follows:
C:UsersTheUser>where conda
INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

C:UsersTheUser>where python
C:UsersTheUserAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsAppspython.exe

The application’s conda, activate etc. resides here:
C:TheApplcationbinPythonScripts

If I go to directory C:TheApplcationbinPythonScripts and use activate command:
C:TheApplcationbinPythonScripts>activate TheEnv
The system cannot find the path specified.
The system cannot find the path specified.
The system cannot find the path specified.
The system cannot find the path specified.

(TheEnv) C:TheApplcationbinPythonScripts>

Thus the activate is not successful. I think some executable envoked by "activate" are not found. Hence the message "The system cannot find the path specified."
How to clean the older environment? C:UsersTheUserAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsAppspython.exe is symbolic link. How to know where is it pointing. I tried to rename the python.exe but windows gives error.
