Registry - Legacy Folders

  badgermansix 20:45 PM 23 Jun 11

WindowsXPPro I have noticed in the tree of the registry of my PC that there are a lot of Folders called Legacy, and that there are programms there that I have used in the past but have uninstalled, like AVG and Zone Alarm etc What are these folders doing there when I have uninstalled the programms with the Uninstall option of that programm.

Can I remove these?

Try a safe registry cleaner like the tool in CCleaner

Run Ccleaner to get rid of all junk files then click Registry and scan for issues, do the scan several times until no issues are found.

Fruit Bat/\0/\, Thanks for that, I do use ccleaner and also WinAso quite often. It was just that I came accross these folders and wondered to what purpose they are serving, and can they be/should they be deleted, as I did notice others that I no longer have installed.
