    Another program that will remove registry entries for the files I manually delete?
    I had a six-month trial of Webroot, and one of Webroot's many good features was having a function for doing just that. It has a function that says "You can remove files using Secureanywhere and automatically remove associated registry entries."(See screenshot.)

    I had a hard drive fail on me, and I'm determined not to let this one get overcrowded on me. So I destroy lots of files that can't be removed with Revo Uninstaller when I decide I have no use for them, especially setup files.

    Maybe I already have a program that will let me get rid of the registry entries corresponding to folders and files I delete, and I just don't know it. I just found out I can selectively delete System Restore points with CCleaner. :biggrin:

    Well first I don't want to hear you braging about your 25 year rustbucket you are calling your car! I always tought such siggs are for bragging about your nice and new hardware you have but where on earth can you brag with such 10 year old hardware? You didn't even left out your 5 year old USB-Device.

    Well overcrouding normaly doesn't destroy HDDs. In your case you must be graceful you only lost a HDD. Many 10 year old systems doesn't even bother to boot up.

    If you have not enought space on your HDD and your PC is to slow simply buy a new one. Let's donate this museum-piece to a museum and be done with it. You've got very useful 10 years out of your PC, please let it retire!

    Brag? I am not fond of this computer, and I am planning to move to a new one with Windows 7 this summer, hopefully.

    I believe CCleaner does this as well.

    As far as posting your system specs. Congratulations! You are a rarity here and its hard to help some people without them. Most are not even aware they have a ram module let alone what a hard drive is. I usually want to hint that its inside the big box, not the actual box.:D

    thank you, EFA11. It's been my understanding that you are supposed to include your specs when you post on a computer forum. I never thought that would be interpreted as "bragging." It's ironic. There have been times this computer was fortunate I didn't have a sledge hammer handy! :D
