cpf program registry entries

i often download and install programs to try them out. if i find the program is not what i want i uninstall it. but, the program still stays in cpf’s proram registry entries. my registry cleaner programs try to delete these entries, but of course they cant. besides uninstalling and reinstalling cpf to get rid of them, is there another way., like temporarily turning off protect the registry and running the reg cleaner or some other method?

Hi and welcome,

If you open CPF, go to ‘security’>>‘advanced’>>click ‘configure’ under the miscellaneous tab>>and uncheck ‘protect own registry keys and files from unauthorised modification’.

Hope this helps,
Mike
