Hello guys. I am by no means a professional but I do understand that when I uninstall stuff it might not totally uninstall for whatever reason. Or leave traces of the program or whatever the technical term is. I was wondering if anyone could recommend something to help clean up the stuff I don't need. I use carp** Cleaner but I was looking through my registry (I'm not brave enough to change anything.) and I saw remnants of programs I no longer have. Any suggestions... Any important directions I need to know about backing up the registry or how to restore it if I need to? (I have XP is it as simple as just creating a restore point?) Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

Regseeker is a good free program, just make sure that you choose to make back ups before you remove items. Has a bunch of nice utilities also.

Since I've noticed this thread being actively browsed, I've decided to insert a comment.

First off, I will state that I have immense respect for the professionalism and expertise of Siggyx.

With that said, I believe that any discussion of automated Registry Cleaners would be well informed by reading the important contributions offered by Bill Castner, here: http://forums.whatth...272#entry418272

And most certainly, any use of Registry Cleaners should be preceded by the use of ERUNT as linked here:
