In windows Vista I have uninstalled several programs and they continue to be listed in the control panels Programs and Features folder. How do I remove these left over items?

This one helped me with deleting programs who still listed in programs after deletion, also cleaning the registry with this tool help with removing unecesary records. (always make a backup from your registry before making any changes)

M$ has a cleanup utility that works pretty well

I Thought of trying the cleanup utility but wasn't sure what it works on. The info on it made me think that it works on M$ Office only.

If it isn't limited to MS Office then I will surly try it.

That worked out quite well. The troublesome entries are gone. It took very little effort to remove them with the clean up program. I should have used that procedure a long time ago, I just wasn't sure it would work on all items in the list.
Thanks for resolving this nagging problem.

CCleaner

Thanks for the suggestion.
It has been six months since I removed Nero and all its sub programs. I have ran CCleaner and its registry tool several times since then. I've even tried Your Uninstaller (where the programs are listed too) and they disappear until I restart windows and invoke Your uninstaller again only to see the programs back in the list.
