Looking at that prog on a w98 machine shows.

No entry in add/remove.
No uninstaller in the progs files.

If it was me I'd delete the progs folder and any short cuts.

You might want to consider moving the progs backup folder/files to some temp area before you delete things.....just in case.

Use the search feature on the start menu

And do the same in the Registry.

Regseeker doesn't require much...

in the way of uninstalling so it doesn't write any uninstall info to the registry.

To uninstall it you just DELETE any shortcuts to it as well as the Directory it is installed to. When you delete the directory you will also be deleting any backups you have made.

If you like it and use it why not just find and delete the executable (RegSeeker.exe) by searching your system for the file. After deleting it, download a fresh copy of and extract ONLY the RegSeeker.exe file into the existing directory as that should take care of any suspected "corruption".

I figured it out,the program was pretty aggressive.I never let it fix anything on it's own.It would say I had 300 something errors.Of course alot was file extensions that was'nt used yet(you never know)
many invalid entries,I never knew what most was so I left them alone.
Mostly I just wanted something to get what is left behind after uninstalling something,but you would have to go through all the invalid entries to find anything,that would take forever.

Why not try CCLEANER which is not as aggressive.
