Does anyone know of a utility that can wipe clean all previously deleted data,leaving installed progs intact?
Thanks

do you mean remove old or invalid registry entries? jv16 powertools click here

some programs are not very good at cleaning up after themselves so if its just folders left behind after uninstalling programs/games etc then just delete them if you are sure they have already been uninstalled via add remove progs.

there is nothing that will remove all traces of your activity that cannot be recovered by those determined enough.

try cleanup click here use the "thorough" setting.
