Add new hardware runs when I uninstall software

  Hanx1953 18:59 13 Jun 05

Windows XP (sp2). No matter what program I install and later uninstall, the Add new hardware wizard pops up and asks for one of the various "exe" or "dll" files to be installed as a supposed "new hardware". If I let it search it cannot (obviously) find these and I can stop it asking me again but I end up with a host of crap in the registry which I have to delete in order to tidy things up. It doesn't seem to be a great problem but is an extreme annoyance as it slows the boot process.
