    What do you guys think is the best program for removing all traces of programs from the registry (after I uninstall them)? I know I can do it manually in regedit, but I thought maybe there's a good program that can do it faster.

    I am running Win XP Pro

    It seems that way, yes

    WINASO registry optimizer for instance finds a lot more ''problems'' then ccleaner but I like ccleaner a lot

    I use TuneUp Utilities, seems to work fine. It also has alot of other automated registry fixes that speed your computer up alot.

    TuneUp is def a good one I can also recomend XP Tools it has alot of extra functions and does a good job of cleaning up the reg.

    Ya its funny never really trusted any of them , Tuneup is my first choice and really like Regcleaner . You would have to unistall a program ,then run your reg cleaner of choice then run Regcleaner to pick off what you missed .

    In fairness if you run another program it may find more invalid entries .... So who's the best ? I'v yet to figure that out .

    ccleaner seemed to do the job. I needed it for removing activation info from a proggie I accidentally updated and then it stopped working. I ran ccleaner then reinstalled and it's working fine now. I might try tuneup as well to see what it finds.
