When uninstalling a couple of games from my pc (XP) i recieved a message saying... could not remove all game components you will have to manually remove the rest yourself. Just how do i do this?. Mainly to avoid my pc becoming cluttered with unwanted left overs?
You can never remove all the dross left from uninstalled programs but this will give you a start. Put the Program name where the XXXXX is print off and follow the instructions you may have to do this in safe mode, but try in windows first........................ To remove follow these step's closely, go to start\find\files or folders type in the box XXXXX click enter key delete all the entry's it finds with XXXXX in it. Next go to start run type regedit and press enter, go to menu under edit click find in the box type XXXXX and press enter it will bring up only one entry at a time, press delete key then click ok to confirm to go to next entry press F3 and delete do this until you get to the end of the registry. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE IN THE REGISTRY other than XXXXX then reboot your computer
