Remove leftover WMP reg entries

Q: Remove leftover WMP reg entries

I had been using WMP 6.4. Decided to try Version 7. Uninstalled and checked out Version 9. Wish I hadn't done either. I don't care for the extra features they added and should have just stayed with 6.4.

After searching, I've learned that those newer versions added lots of registry entry's that do not get removed with Add/Remove Programs.

When I run Spybot S&D, I still see entry's about Media Player and SDK. I have Win98SE, use Norton Windoctor and JV16 Powertools.

Is there a tool or guide to remove leftover WMP registry entries before putting 6.4 back on? I had deleted 6.4 from Explorer and ran the above before installing the other versions. I also have the Alternative versions, but need WMP for streaming.

Preferred Solution: Remove leftover WMP reg entries

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have installed a couple of Linux distros a copy of XP etc that have been removed from the system. The entries are still left showing up in the bootmenu. How do I delete these unwanted entries?

Note, currently I have Zorin 8 installed dual booting with Windows so it's grub's boot loader that shows up first. This is fine with me and the way I prefer it. On choosing to go to my windows bootmenu I then get the bootmenu screen with all the unwanted entries.

If I am not mistaken, I should be able to delete these entries so when choosing to boot Windows, the system then should boot right into windows without giving me that extra windows bootmenu screen ( because it's not needed - there will be no other choices in that menu to choose from)

How can I do this? Thanks (BTW, I don't want to use a 3rd party tool like BCDEdit)

A:How do I remove leftover entries from the Win 8 bootmenu?

I'm tweaking Flight Simulator 2004, and I have an add-on program that has thoroughly uninstalled, but it's entry still remains on the remove/change program page. How can I get rid of it for good?

A:Getting rid of leftover change/remove entries?

Are you referring to the Programs and features in the control panel?If you click the option in the list and the program is already gone from the computer, Windows 7 will ask if you want to remove that entry, choose yes.It will safely remove a reference to the program from your windows registry.At least that is what happens on my version of Windows 7 Home Edition.If I misunderstood your question, please define what you mean by remove/change.Bruce.

Hello,
As I using Windows long time and have uninstall and install many apps and the uninstalled apps left some registry entries, most of the entries is under HKEY_Current_User\Software and HKEY_Local_Machine and many keys name is same as the uninstalled apps, does it is safe to delete the entries?

A:Should I delete leftover registry entries

I sometimes encountered problems re-installing applications after normal uninstall and manual registry key deletions of same applications.

Could be because these keys can be associated with files which are still present in program files folder and other locations, so deleting these folders is what I would do. but still re-installation could be incomplete some times.

I uninstalled AOL 9.0 off of all of my computers (because it sucks). I scanned all of them with a few Registry Cleaners (Ace Utilities, System Suite, and RegScrubXP). Then I opened regedit and searched for all entries with AOL in it an got a ton of left over entries.

I was wondering why these Registry Cleaners didn't get them.

But I do have AIM and I am thinking some entries belong to that so I don't know what to delete.

Any Help?

hi there,
after sometime i decided to check out my windows registry, so i typed regedit and went in. and to my dismay, i could find several folders(or are what are they?) of programs i uninstalled some long time ago. prominently appearing among them were visual studios that i had installed some time back but later uninstalled. they include the visual studio c++ 2010, visual studio 2012 Express edition. and some other programs also, and i noticed that these folders are huge and I'm wondering if they are not slowing down my PC. so my question is, how do i deal with them safely, i haven't touched them yet..

A:how to safely delete leftover registriy entries after uninstall?

Not unusual obby I have done this loads of times with bloatware Norton / Symantec being the real PITA one I just right click on the reg entry I find and click delete. This is quite handy when removing crap like the AVG add on stuff that you think is removed by uninstall but the reg bits linger.

But don't go on what I say playing in there can be quite dodgy unless you are sure of what you are deleting - I always open them out before deleting to make sure something else is not hiding in the sub entries. Click on the entry and it will open downwards like things do in C: drive and its folders.

Just be CAREFUL.

I removed mcafee using add/remove programs under the control panel. although i got the message that the uninstall was successful, there are still some things in the start.ini referring to this program. should i remove these using regedit. also will it help in getting rid of a conflict i'm having with other programs already on my computer?
 

A:using regedit to remove leftover files

If you are not real familiar with the registry, I suggest you download RegEditPlus.. a freeware program which provides the same service as windows regedit, but provides backup in case you make an error.
Then, in registry click 'C' and Find, enter any references to McAfee and use the delete button at the extreme top of panel on any that are found.

A:Delete leftover names in Add/Remove

To remove the invalid/orphaned entries from the Add/Remove applet manually [Windows 2000/XP]

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
2. Locate the following key in the registry:
3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
4. Make sure you backup the keys by exporting them to a .reg file.
5. Look for the name of the program with the orphaned entry.
6. Delete the entire listing for the software with the orphaned entry.
7. Close the registry editor.
8. Restart your computer.

--wow.  sorry.  there was a lot more to this post, evidently none of it actually made it on the page.  I wouldn't leave a post like that and expect anyone to help me!  
 
I've been following Nasdaq's instructions for fastnigel on how to remove iskysoft downloader, and have gotten over my head.  I did all of the recommended scans, save for the security check (unsupported os, so it said:windows 8.1)  JRT removed some things, but failed to remove some searchscopes.  The log is posted below.
 
 All in all, performance has been slower, one time chrome told me I was not connected even though I repeatedly checked and reset my connection (2-3bars).   Things are just more likely to act weird, lots more errors, though nothing major.  I also have had webpage displays go wonky-- nothing dramatic, but nothing I'd ever seen before (a line shifting down the page, so that the two sections were not perfectly aligned, for example).
 
Nevertheless, Norton internet security (with firewall) tells me that everything is fine.  (Norton internet Security and Windows 8.1)
 
 
Here's the JRT log.  Thank you for your tireless work to help all us fools!  I will continue to search for more info on the next step, and will post updates.

Hi all!
 
I have MS Win XP Pro SP3 32-bit, and Windows Media Player 11, and would like to remove several files named AlbumArt.jpg, AlbumArtSmall.jpg and Folder.jpg . There is also an important file named desktop.ini, which I of course will not delete.
 
However, as I try to delete them, one of the following generic warning message(s) that comes up, is like this:
 

AlbumArtSmall.jpg is a system file.
 
If you remove it, it is possible that your computer or one of the programs on your computer will not work properly. Are you sure you would like to move it to the Recycle Bin?

 
Obviously this is because the files are 'hidden'.
 
I rarely use Windows Media Player, as I have moved on to iTunes, which IMO is far more versatile for maintaining my music library.
 
So, now I am wondering: How do I safely remove Windows Media Player leftover jpeg files with a script?
 
Thank you very much in advance!

A:How do I safely remove Windows Media Player leftover jpeg files with a script?

Hi again midimusicman79 Windows Media Player is a core component of Windows. Any attempt to remove it, uninstall it or else will leave you with system files corruption. So if I were you, I would leave it be and not touch it. You cannot fully uninstall "core" components of Windows, any attempt to do so will bring you problems, I can guarantee you that.

remove unwanted entries in add/remove programs applet
Hi all. I'm tuning up a pc for a friend whose kids have installed

numerous trial games, itunes, music oasis, etc., and other misc. crap.

Got most of it to my liking except this: can't get rid of 2 entries in

the Add/ Remove Programs applet in Control Panel (itunes and music

oasis). Here's what I've done so far:

Searched the web high and low and tried every suggestion offered to no

avail, so I'm trying as many forums as I can keep track of. There are

a lot more sharper minds than mine out there.

In Regedit went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Current

Version|Uninstall and removed all the entries I wanted, then rebooted,

went back into Add/Remove and itunes and music oasis are still there

Opened C:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf, but the 2 entries aren't even listed

Someone suggested using Tweakui, but, as far as I can tell, that only

removes the applets in Control Panel (unless I'm missing something

there)

Installed a program called Add Remove Program Cleaner, but the 2

offending entires aren't listed in there either

Ran Hijack This>Misc. Tools>Unistall Manager, and the entries aren't

there either (no big surprise there either)

And, finally, reinstalled itunes and music oasis, then rebooted,

uninstalled them again, and the entries are still in the Add/Remove

A:remove unwanted entries in Add/Remove Programs applet

From the Web:One method: This method avoids editing the registry and should be tried first. The easiest way is to open Add/Remove Programs and select the listing for the program you know has already been deleted. Select the application and click the Remove button. Since there is no application to 'remove', the process will time out and you'll be presented with an option to remove the entry.Another method: To manually remove the orphaned entries from the Add or Remove Programs applet, follow these steps:Click Start, Run and type regedit.exeNavigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Uninstall

Backup the branch to a file Note: Each subkey represents a program that you've installed. To determine which program that each key represents, click the key, and then view the DisplayName value data in the right pane Select the subkey that you want to deleteRight-click on the subkey and choose DeleteClose Registry Editor

After reboot, ZoneAlarm was obviously gone, no registry keys, system files and no entry in Windows Security Center. But I forgot to check the Add/Remove Programs.

Now the entry's still there even though I uninstalled it a month ago. How do I remove it?

I have two new entries in my HJT log that I cannot get rid of. I did a regedit, and they aren't even where they say they are. And I disabled and cleared my restore files, did a safemode and Hijack This, and still no luck. At least I was finally able to delete mxtarget.dll. For now, at any rate.
I have a couple of questions. First, I just downloaded SpywareBlaster, and I'm totally unable to find where one selects and "kills" anything. Could someone explain. It's about the simplest program I've seen, but I can't do what the post on this forum says I should be doing. I even downloaded the newest files.

Here are two of the HJT entries that I have had no luck eliminating. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated-
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
And here are three entries that I don't remember seeing before. I'm just curious if they are entries I should keep or not-
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [cbwau] C:\WINDOWS\cbwau.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [caxnyasuocog] C:\WINDOWS\System32\dibkng.exe

Hi,Please find below my HJT log. It has 5 Asksbar entries. Basically everytime I start my computer there are 3 command prompts which start and activate some service on my computer. I have tried to run spybot, avast, avg etc on my computer and none of them seem to be able to delete the service. then I installed HJT and when I ran the scan it gave me 5 entries of AsksBar. But after I check them and say fix them they are removed. But next time I run the same scan they reappear. Please help me resolve the problem.Please find below the HJT log.Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 2:10:10 AM, on 12/17/2008Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\aswUpdSv.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashServ.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ZCfgSvc.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\ashDisp.exeC:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\TeaTimer.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exeC:\Program Files\Commo...

After using the trial version of Adobe Photoshop CS2 for a few days and deciding I didn't like it, I tried to uninstall it, but I kept getting an error message about the uninstall wizard not working and being unable to uninstall it. I wound up manually deleting its folders from the C:\Program Files\Adobe folder and deleting its entries from the registry, including the "Uninstall" sub-menu. After rebooting, I discovered that the following entries were still present in the Add/Remove Programs list:

Adobe Bridge 1.0
*Adobe Help Center 1.0
*Adobe Photoshop CS2
*Adobe Stock Photos 1.0
Adobe Common File Installer

I went back into the registry and did an Edit - Find on each entry until no more were found. After rebooting again and checking the Add/Remove Programs list, the 3 entries marked with an asterisk were still present.

I have no idea how to get rid of them. Don't ask me to try using a registry cleaner because I've already used 2 of them.

I'm using Windows XP SP2.

A:How to remove redundant entries from the Startup tab of...?

Hi,
I would guess the easiest way is to uninstall the program that installed it to begin with,
Make sure it's checked first/ restart then uninstall.

ccleaner can remove Unknown entries when people forget to recheck the item before uninstalling the program.

You can also use autoruns but it's a dangerous program unless you know what your doing.

I've put another copy of Vista on my machines, this being the second one, where the first has had no similar issues.

My log shows me multiple error 015 and 023 entries; as well as 010

010 and LSP I am in the dark about.


I did read a little bit, that 015 is HJF related, and they have to be corrected through registry editing, but I'm not 100% sure on what exactly is to be modified.


From past experience with using hijack and 023, I know that generally speaking, any service entry in hijack that cannot be 'fixed,' is due to dependancy in Windows services. I.e. if the service is not disabled, Hijack cannot 'fix' it.

Lastly the 06 IE entry. Let it be known I haven't a copy of IE on this system.

Hi to everyone. This is a friends computer, it is a new e machine P4 1 gig ram 120mb hd, running XP home. He had someone else set this machine up and just to let you know, they went ahead and installed this trial Norton security suite, with Norton Firewall that came pre installed on the computer. Nothing else security wise was put on the machine, so I went ahead, and installed Spybot(updated). When I ran Spybot, it preticked two registry entries to be removed, they were: Windows Security Center. Anti virus Diable Notify , and Windows Security Center. Firewall Disable Notify. Well, since these items were preticked by Spybot, I went ahead and quarantined them. I have seen nothing wrong with the comp, it seems to be running ok, but just wanted to make sure I had not done something wrong. Thanks in advance for any thoughts/ideas.

Regards
IMP49
 

A:Spybot to remove 2 registry entries in XP

These are just warnings that the Security Center alerts that would normally warn you if your anti-virus and firewall have been turned off or disabled for any reason, have been unchecked so that they do not warn you.

If you chose not to be alerted and turned those things off in the Security Center intentionally, then you can put these on ignore.
Otherwise, something or someone has changed those settings and that should be investigated further.

You will find them under the Security Center in the Control Panel.
On the left-hand side, you will see five options.
Click on the last one Change the way security center alerts me and you will find three choices there.
If there are no check marks in the boxes then that means that the alerts have been turned off.

I cannot understand this! IE6 seems to have kept a record of many different sites visited over the past weeks and months, which I cannot get rid of despite a number of different attempts. I will type in the first letter of an address and it presents me with a drop-down menu of tons of previously visited web sites.

Odd thing is, if I was to type in a new address now, I could Clear History and it would remove that address, but strangely it would still leave all these other web entries from ages ago, absolutely untouched.

These include forum searches and Google searches in addition to many other websites, although it hasn't saved every single search/site, for some reason only certain entries have been stored, but many of them nonetheless.

Here's what I've tried so far:

Clear History/AutoComplete - didn't remove it

Regedit TypedURLs - no URLs there, just the 'Default'

2 different internet 'cleaning' softwares - didn't remove it (apparently History and AutoComplete are empty), yet cleared out everything else it could find!

Computer restart after these methods - no change, addresses still there
I despair; what else can I do to try and remove these old addresses?
 

A:Cannot remove previous web entries in IE6 despite many attempts!

Instead of searching while in regedit, navigate directly to the following registry hives:

Hkey_Users/Default/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Typed Urls/

Hkey_Current User/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Typed Urls/

Good luck.

I recently installed Winrar and it added a great many entries to my context menus.

When using many apps, for example Windows Explorer, and I right-click on a file name in order to move or copy it, a large number of items appear in the context menu that were not present before I installed Winrar.

Can anyone tell me how to remove these items short of uninstalling Winrar? I would like to keep Winrar installed. But these extra items in the context menus cause me a real serious pain in the neck.

A:Can anyone help me remove the entries from context menus?

Easiest way to deal with this is to full uninstall and then do a selective install. You should be queried as to if you want the context menu feature or not. That is how it works with 7zip which is my preferred utility. You might even be offered to change the setup in options or at the uninstall/change portion.

Hello all, I recently went into my regestry and following some instructions on the internet, tried to remove some useless entries from Add or Remove Programs. Well, I've had a couple of problems, because for some of the entries I did not delete the folder, just the display name. After I realized that the entries were still there, I went back into my registry to find the folders and delete them, but no cigar. None of the folders are named after the program and none of the folders have a display name or something that might indicate that the program strings are there. Any help? Thanks

SP2, XP Pro. Safely installed and stable now after a few minor gliches. Went to Add/Remove and none of the long list of Hotfixes is there anymore, just SP2. Reg Seeker seems to be listing all of them for removal. Glad to do so, but wanted to check here before doing so. Is it safe to eliminate the registry entries for the "old" Hotfixes?
 

A:After SP2; Hotfix reg entries. Remove safely?

Bump.

I don't mean uncheck the box to turn it off I mean remove it from the list of toolbars. I added a toolbar and now I wnat to remove it. It is bothering me to no end. Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:Remove entries on the taskbar menu

Default items in that menu can't be removed but any custom one can be removed just by UN-checking it.
Next time you open toolbars menu it won't be there.

Hi there,
I wonder could someone help me please!
I?m trying to get a script that will remove/delete all of the value entries within the Storage2 sub tree of the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms\Storage2 and only leave the Default value entry.
I tried using the command  delete "[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms\Storage2]" /va /f and that didn't work for me so any suggestions on a bat file, vbs script or .reg file that would clear
those values would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Bonemister
