I dunno, but that is such a crazy thought that I just might try it on my system at home this weekend.

Edit: Curiosity killed the cat so I just tried it.
Guess what happens? Revo Uninstaller uninstalled Revo Uninstaller!
Imagine that!! Will wonders never cease!!

I'm gonna try it on my Virtual XP when I get home. Were there any stray entries/folders left behind?

...And pieces never sunder!

I just did the Revo/ uninstall Revo thing on VM, and Revo did a clean uninstall, it only left behind one empty folder & 2 stray registry entries:

C:\Program Files\VSRevo Group

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\Revouninstaller.exe
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VSRevoGroup
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VSRevoGroup\RevoUninstaller

I dunno why this impresses me so much, but it does.:huh:
