Uninstalling Software

  [DELETED] 14:54 19 Aug 2003

Can anybody recommend some software which will not only uninstal a program, but also remove the associated registry entries?

Yes - I know. What OS I hear you asking - answer W2K Pro.

Norton CleanSweep claims to do this, but I think you have to install through this app to get the benefit.

You can clear it out of the registry if W2K works the same as XP. You can try for nothing, go to Start/Run & type regedit make sure My Computer is highlighted click Edit then click Find, Type the exact name of the file you want to get rid of click Find Next. It should come up with your file & be highlighted. Delete that & ONLY THAT then click find next, & so on until it finds no more. Make a backup of your registry before you start in case of any mistakes, don't mess with anything else.

i use a program 'advanced uninstaller' that was free on a windows xp mag some months back. it has options to 'add/remove program' and also to 'remove obsolete registry items'. i'll look tonight to see if it's 2000 compatible.
