Revo Uninstaller works great. Just follow the instructions and when it gets to the step of removing the registry entries, BE SURE TO CHECK OFF ONLY THE ENTRIES THAT ARE SHOWN IN BOLD.
Here is a link to download it:

hi.

I also use Revo Uninstaller but be careful when deleting some of the leftover registry items when it ask if you want to delete it.

I already have some problem with it when I accidentally deleted all file association in registry. Almost all file association. :thumbsup:

Thank goodness I got a recovery cd and reverted all to my restore points.

I use CCleaner as well, but not to uninstall programs anymore. CCleaner doesn't fully uninstall programs like Revo does. Revo works like CCleaner and runs the programs own uninstall, but then Revo goes and finds all the registry entries for you to delete, and then goes and find all the folders and leftover files for you to delete. Revo FULLY uninstalls a program.
