Unable to clear software program

Hi all, Some time ago I tried to install a Brother combined printer, copier and scanner, for some reason I couldn't, but it wasn't mine, so I wasn't particularly bothered. I uninstalled the software as I thought properly, but it keeps reappearing in the registry, although I deleted from the registry. Everytime I go back into Regcleaner there it is again. I know it's probably not doing any harm it's just annoying that it keeps appearing. Ideas anybody to permanently remove it? P

To remove follow these step's closely, go to start\find\files or folders type in the box Brother click enter key delete all the entry's it finds with Brother in it. Next go to start run type regedit and press enter, go to menu under edit click find in the box type Brother 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 Brother then reboot your computer

Thanks for that, I should have realised that there may have been more than one registry entry. P

bit safer if you're wary of poking about in the registry.
