It would be nice if MS did a better job of tidying up after themselves during a VS uninstall.

Yeah no sh*t. I had to manually remove the directories left over, as wel as some of the other crap. I found an article on MS's site about what to manually remove, but even THAT doesn't cover everything, as I found some other junk as well. I'll get rid of the SQL CE stuff, figured that was in there...its hard to tell when I compare to the new install though because who knows what was on there before and what was part of the install. I agree, the C++ runtime stuff doesn't consume too much space, but what about the SQL Server CLR types and stuff...is that related to 2k8 or no?

I tried that, it said it already uninstalled everything, but it rarely does. TBH my company is guilty of the same thing, our "uninstaller" leaves behind whole directories, or sometimes just removes the icons but not the files.
Maybe if you run the setup (the one you used to install the vs 2010) again you will find the option to uninstall?
Why uninstall everthing? it is not causing any harm? How did it go with the strange people coming to your house, still waiting for a followup on that one .
