Add/Remove Programs

By TheRook ·
I am preparing a pc from which to dump a ghost image, by running all the updates, and removing and adding programs. I noticed that in the program files folder on the local drive, that alot of the folders of removed programs are still there. How does this affect the machine, if at all? Do i need to delete these folders as well?

You can definetely remove the folders. Also, if you really want to have a "clean" image, go through the registry either with regedit or another program such as regclean. I do not think there is any harm in leaving the folders, but Programs folder looks cluttered.
