I cringe when someone says "my laptop isnt working properly" and i see exactly that - Uninstalling ###### is the bane of my life

This is why Microsoft is looking past Win32. WinRT by default prevent random installs from the web.

Winferno Registry Cleaner - love that name! :laugh: Seriously, it seems that you have a great job. I envy you sometimes, really. Removing all that crap, and giving back to the customer a fast, working pc from my point of view is pure fun,  pleasure and satisfaction.

On a serious note, had to remove that Plus-HD crap of my Mom's Surface, it was really interfering with IE and generating popups like no tomorrow
