removing old files

hi all
when you remove old software eg free programs demos etc what do they leave behind on your comp i know that a lot of programs leave behind their old dll files and old reg keys but is there anything else that is left behind and is there any good free software for removing this junk to free up space.Any recommmends for free programs to keep the old beige box safe from all the nastys out there.I currently run avg 7, zone alarm, ad aware and as a back up i run the free online virus scanner from trend once a week is this enough? or can i do more
thanks all
