Messages on Start-up

Over the months I have had this computer (Dell) I have Uninstalled various Programmes that I no longer require, but some of them have left some remnants behind, which prompt the computer to give messages about these programmes on Start-up. Does anyone know how to get rid of these messages and the programme remnants, please?

ccleaner is good for cleaning out junk.

Just run the registry cleaner, but remember to backup when prompted.

Thanks fro the response. I run CCleaner every day, but messages are always there. Is there some setting I should be using onCCleaner to clean Registry? Or, how or where is the Registry Cleaner you refer to? I am a not-very-experienced Computer user, as you can tell!

In CCleaner , select 'Issues' .

Back up registry when prompted - this will be saved to a file which can be deleted later .

You will be given a brief description of anything selected for deletion and the option whether to do this .
