I'm looking for a way to get rid of artifacts left behind by deleted and uninstalled apps. things like reg entries, dll's, and other leftover crap. is there an app, preferably a free one, that can scan for things like that? if not, then whats the best way to search myself.

A combination of Disk Cleaner (Start->Run->"cleanmgr") and RegCleaner (free ware, google) does the trick for me. Make sure that you set the options for "Compress Old Files" to 1 day, that will make sure that Windows clears as much of the unwanted files as possible.
