Why is it when you select items that are clogging up space to be cleaned away it leaves a few things behind even when u try and clean em up time and time again??

some file if you delete them are automatically restored by windows - others programs need the proper uninstall to remove all traces - but the best bet is a registry cleaner to remove all traces - and remember the Startup tab - clear unwanted progs from there using MSCONFIG ;)

RegSeeker is a handy tool for managing several popular registry items and searching the registry by keyword. It offers quick access to Startup Entries, Uninstall Information, Color Schemes, History items (URLs, Recent Documents etc) and IE Favorites. The program also includes a registry cleaning feature that finds invalid and unused registry entries, allowing you to delete them. RegSeeker can automatically create a backup before deleting any registry entries. The program comes with an attractive, easy to use interface. Nevertheless it is not intended for complete beginners and you should feel comfortable working with the Windows registry before using it.
