CCleaner indicates in the Applications category that I have Paint.NET.
I did briefly use it about a year ago, but I uninstalled it.
I have checked in the typical Folders and can't find any signs of Paint.NET.

How can I get say ... Revo Uninstaller to find it and rip it out?
Or CAN it?
There is no Paint.NET Icon in the Uninstall sections of Windows, CCleaner and Revo Uninstaller.
So how do I get rid of these mysterious Paint.NET remnants?

I don't consider this to be an issue. Paint.net cleans up after itself during uninstall rather well. Generally speaking, programs like CCleaner tend t cause more issues than they solve. Not only that, but improper use of CCleaner can leave your system in a unbootable state. As such, we don't recommend the use of registry cleaners.

You're right in that as far as what I've seen, it is NOT an issue ... no side effects, Etc.
It was just a little detail that kept bugging me every time I saw it there in the CCleaner Cleanups.
I just figured IF there was a way to make that go away, I'd sure be interested in knowing how.
Otherwise, I'll just have to let it be.
