A recent Panda scan alerted me to the presence of several hundred msp files within Microsoft Installer on my computer. I know that these files include those necessary to uninstall programs, but a lot of them must be junk. The thing is, I don't want to write down the names (meaningless jumbles of letters & numbers to me) and check each of them individually to see if it shows up in my registry and therefore should not be deleted. In other words, I need a program that will not only remove such files on demand, but will also first identify which of them ought to be culled out.
I have MS's Windows Installer Clean-Up, which I believe is supposed to do this, but can find no instructions on how to do it, and considering the danger of uninstalling valuable stuff I don't wand to attempt to do it by trial & error.
I also have CCleaner and Revo Uninstaller, and I wonder whether either of these might be able to do it.
Can anyone advise?
