    On Saturday night I installed Quickclean2. I had a look around and decided I done most of this stuff everyday anyway.
    I decided to uninstall.Couldn't find it's own uninstaller,if it had one
    Used Add/Remove. Give it a couple of runs afterwards with Reghance and it give the all-clear. To-night I thought of Regedit
    and run it again. Now either Reghance missed these or else they
    re-generated overnight, but I discovered two more Quickclean files. So perhaps it's no harm getting a second opinion. :D

    Two things:

    It did have its own uninstaller, or you wouldn't have seen it listed in the Add-Remove applet.
    It's just a convenient way to access the program's own uninstall string.

    And it's most unlikely that Reghance missed things that Regedit did unearth. After all, they both look at exactly the same thing: your Registry.

    I hasten to add I have no experience using RegHance, but I'm sure it's not a 'bug'.

    What exactly were the keys that got "regenerated"?
    And did you check your startups to see whether anything referring to Quickclean2 is still there?

    There were two or three pages of files and about a 15 minute update there. I opened and did a quick look for uninstaller,I say a quick look, and didn't see one. went to Add/Remove and done the job from there. The rest is in above post.
    The Quickclean files were contained inside Cybermedia Inc and
    another name CyberKrn.vxd co.
    Google connects these with Quickclean. ;)
    The last paragraph refers to to-nights job.

    No mention of Quickclean in startup list. :)
