Removing softwares completely from your computer
April 4, 2010 1 Comment
Many people just use add/remove programs to uninstall their software and think that it has been removed completely.
It doesnt, the software leaves traces in the registry which can slow down or even trash your computer.
The left-over registry entries have to be manually deleted which can be really complicated, but there are a few good freeware softwares which can do the job for you.
1. Revo uninstaller: An excellent uninstaller and my favorite, you can uninstall programs from this with ease and clean the registry and files and folders left behind.
2. C-cleaner: Probably the most popular junk-file cleaner in the world. The uninstall tool in Ccleaner is quite good, after which you can use the registry tool to check and clean up invalid entries.
3. Glary utilities free: An all in one system utility which is a must have for all computers. Its various modules allow users to clean up their internet traces,junk files, manage start up programs, registry cleaning and defrag, etc
There are many registry cleaners available for free, but the above three are quite safe to use.
