Uninstalling Docker From Windows 10

I installed Docker on windows 10 pro today with virtualization enabled. After the installation, I noticed that my system has become very very slow and many apps turned out to be unresponsive too. When I tried to uninstall it, it got stuck on uninstalling screen. I tried uninstalling it after rebooting my system but with no success at all.

Then I tried to search this issue on google if it is a known issue or it has something to do with my system. After reading multiple issues raised on Github and docker forums I got to know that it is a known issue but I could not find any simple solution to uninstall it.

After much thought and searching, I tried disabling docker from startup at boot in task manager and rebooted my system. Luckily everything was back to normal, and I was able to uninstall it from control panel.
