Hey guys,

 

Is there any software out there that actually clean up the PC nicely, like finds every uninstalled software and makes sure there is no traces of it?

Off hand I don't know any software that specifically does that. Please be careful searching for that type of software as it will usually involve a registry cleaner an can cause more problems then it resolves.

 

Thanks

Joe :)

I've used Revo Uninstaller some years ago, it did a good job as far as I could tell when uninstalling programs deeply (including registry keys and left-overs).
I don't know if that would the the kind of program you're looking for?
Also CCleaner is the one I use to clean temp and cache files.

Yeah I have crap cleaner, buying pro this week.  Thank you , my sister brought me this computer from chrisco's.  I have made my little additions in this, but i really like it.  Served me well for the last 7 months that I have had it, apart from windows problems with 1809.  I don't let people use it either except for my sister at the moment.

Yes, yes it was indeed, sucks that its only for xp and vista though lol, was a might fine app for cleaning up everything and old app records and things that you dont have on the PC any more.  Is there anything like this for 10? (except for crap cleaner)

Revo uninstaller is the best one I found for uninstalling programs and general cleanup.
