I was looking at regedit the other day and deleted a folder for a program to remove any trace of it before I tried to re-install it.
I then noticed a lot of folders labled with names of other programs that I have uninstalled in the past.
My questions are: 1) Is this a good practice?
2) Can I delete these old program entries or should I just ignore them?
3) Why are they still there? They are like old ghosts!
Regedit is a scary place for me and I try to stay out of there.
As I was instructed, I backed up the registry first,
ran a search ,copied what I was going to delete elswhere,
and deleted everything found with that programs name.
The program didn't work any better upon re-install so I junked it and found a better one.
Any advise would be appreciated
