Uninstall does not Remove AutoRun Entry


Recommended Posts

I installed CCleaner using the 'Slim' installer on Windows 7 x64.


I have also set CCleaner to 'Run CCleaner when the computer starts'


However, after uninstalling CCleaner, the registry entry for the

above Auto start still remains in the registry (see entry below).


HKCU,"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run","ccleaner",0x0,"""C:\Program Files (x86)\CCleaner\ccleaner.exe"" /AUTO"

While this won't necessarily cause any major problems, it really

is not good programming etiquette to leave this behind.

Maybe it is still needed somehow.

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool


If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.
