MSE leftovers...somewhere

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where one can locate any leftovers from a MSE uninstall...that didn't uninstall everything....because if it did then CCleaner wouldn't have a little tick box for it asking me if I want to clean it? Windows 7 Home Premium, btw.

Some programs/entries might be still available after uninstalling, because some of entries may be located for example in %UserProfile% or somewehere where the "main" folder ain't/can't be deleted.

Do you use Winapp2.ini-file?

There's this entry, so you could check your folder at "%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware".

DetectFile=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware
FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\LocalCopy|*.*|RECURSE

Although what's listed below is for XP, it should help you to find them with your newer Windows version:

* All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware

* All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Client

* Program Files\Microsoft Security Client



MSE is one of the very few security related programs that can be uninstalled with Revo Uninstaller without causing issues!
