I thougt that CPM would take away every trace of a monitored program. Am I missing something here?

did you restart before running ccleaeaner? CPM needs a restart to remove leftovers that are locked.

Yes I did restart. In fact I ran Ccleaner several days after I uninstalled Opera. I dont usually use the reg clean option in Ccleaner, but yestarday was a pretty boring day, so I had nothing else to do :stuck_out_tongue: I know what to do today though. I`going to install/uninstall programs like a maniac using CPM and then run Ccleaner to se whats left behind.

Hi,

Some entries are created by Windows when the program is used. They are not created by the setup itself.
These go in the category - junk registry entries. You can use CSC to remove these.

Please do, and tell us what you find.

Dorin.

It will be good if you can share these features in both products.

So, everything in the Cccleaner log was created by Windows?

I have to say, those keys look to me like something that would have been added by the installer, not during program run-time.

Perhaps you could try installing Opera, but not running it and then using CPM to uninstall it?

This would ensure any registry keys were created only by the installer and therefore anything left after the uninstall would be items missed by CPM.

Good test. For Opera lovers :slight_smile:
