My OS,of course is XP home,with Service Pack #3.I am tech curious and download a lot of apps., try them and uninstall. I am also a tidy freak,i do NOT want to be clogged by irrelevant and dead relics from old uninstalled apps. For example, maybe I download IObit toolkit,and then uninstall and it leaves behind exec. file and shell.I want to search them out and delete them and defragment afterwards. Back to OEM original state!
I have used Agent Ransack to chase these relics,and it was great, but lately I get scarce few results from Agent Ransack. Last night I downloaded Copernic for the relics chase.
QUESTION, please: Can someone tell me if lately AR is going bad,or how to configure it best? Is Copernic best for the relics chase? Is there a better one than AR or Copernic? Please educate me a little. Best!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Try Revo Uninstaller instead of add/remove programs.

BTW: I personally dont trust ANYTHING made by IOBit and alwasy uninstall it on every system that I see.
In the beginning there was the command line.
