Uninstall leftovers


Recommended Posts

From a discussion over at Wilders I was asked to post here the things I found left behind after an uninstall of ESS. This list includes folders left on the hard drive, not including any subfolders, and the registry keys were exported and the contents of each exported key copied and pasted here. This is from a 64 bit Windows 8.1 machine with Office 2013 and a copy of ESS 7 and is after an uninstall and then running the ESET Uninstaller in safe mode. These are this things I was able to find searching for the exact string "ESET" and the string "ESET Smart Security".

 

Folders:

Although Win 7....  can someone clarify if the same/similar house cleaning is required for those that upgraded via the System Tray (New Ver is available) notification and special Upgrade Link that followed - which Uninstalled 6/ Installed 7 - Vs - manual steps by me.

 

I see the 1st Folder example listed but not knowing What it belongs to am reluctant to Delete it and others shown.

The above listed entries are for most part harmless leftovers, therefore it's not required to do any cleanup whether you upgraded using the in-product update or installed over the existing installation via online or offline installer.
