A few weeks ago I downloaded Winamp as an alternative player, along with its plug-in to play pls. files. I decided to remove it. I used the Winamp Wizard to un-install it. I furthermore checked on ADD/REMOVE list to make sure it was gone. Then I went to My Computer>Program Files and checked to see if a folder still remained named Winamp. However "Play with Winamp" or "Enque in Winamp" still appears on drop down lists. I also went the route of Set Program Access and Defaults. is there a way that I can completely remove traces of Winamp from my PC?

I don't think Revo will work since it's no longer in Add or Remove Programs. You need the paid version for that.

If uninstall will not find it then just install it again and then uninstall with Revo. Then when once uninstalled again check program files and if a folder still exists just delete it.
I always reinstall then uninstall if at first it wont uninstall, :woot: if that made any sense.

RevoUninstaller offers a Pro trial-version for 30 days to perform "forced uninstall" (uninstalling left-overs). Be carefull with that function and subsequent search for more left-overs (the latter also available in the freeware-version).
