I had a six-month trial of Webroot, and one of Webroot's many good features was having a function for doing just that. It has a function that says "You can remove files using Secureanywhere and automatically remove associated registry entries."(See screenshot.)
I had a hard drive fail on me, and I'm determined not to let this one get overcrowded on me. So I destroy lots of files that can't be removed with Revo Uninstaller when I decide I have no use for them, especially setup files.
Maybe I already have a program that will let me get rid of the registry entries corresponding to folders and files I delete, and I just don't know it. I just found out I can selectively delete System Restore points with CCleaner.
