Note: It’s important to do a backup before deleting anything from the Windows registry so that if something goes wrong, you can restore the system to its earlier state. To do a backup, right-click on the key you want to delete and select Export. It will save a REG file with the backup of that key.

STEP 1. Uninstall the software using Control Panel

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Double-click on the Programs
  3. Choose the program you want to uninstall and click on the Uninstall button. This will remove the program.

Delete the remaining files and folders

Even though you have successfully uninstalled the program, some fragments of the file may be left in a few of the system folders.

To remove them, you’ll need to check the program files and app data. Check the following folders for leftovers.

Just type the above text one at a time in the search box and press enter. This will open the folders directly. If you find any folder with the name of the program you just uninstalled, delete it.

Remove software keys from the Windows Registry

Open the Start menu, type regedit in the search box and press ENTER. It will launch the Registry Editor.

Type the following keys one by one:

1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/software name to delete

2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/software name to delete

3. HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT/Software/software name to delete

Look for a key with the name of the program you just removed. If you find a key, delete it. You can also use CTRL+F to search for such keys.

You will need to be very careful when performing this procedure. When you uninstall a software program, in most cases, the uninstaller does not remove the program from the Windows Registry.

This increases the Windows Registry size. To completely remove the software, you need to remove its key from the Windows Registry.

The final step is to clean the Temp folder. This is the folder that contains all the temporary files and cleaning it is safe. To empty the folder, open the Start menu and type the following commands one by one:

  • %temp%
  • temp
This will open the Temp folders. You can now empty them. If the system displays an error message when deleting some files, leave them. The files might be in use by Windows services or some running software

After following all the steps above, you will be able to completely uninstall a program without leaving a trace on your machine.
