View Full Version : Deleting program files

22-12-2002, 05:54 PM
I want to do a spring clean of the old / trial version of programs etc that have been installed on my computer.

Is there a "free" program I can install to clean up all the dregs left on my hard drive after I have deleted the program.

Many thanks for any info. Merry Xmas!

Hi Baldy

If you are wanting to chase up all those stray registry files this program jv16 PowerTools (http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/shtml/jv16powertools.shtml) is free and will do the job nicely.

I usually also use search to locate "left over" files by searching for key words associated with that program and deleting them manually if any are found - you just have to be certain that it is a "left over" file first!

Merry Xmas and happy hunting :-)

"Clean System Directory" is also a good free program to have to remove any no longer used left over dlls from the windows\system folder.
