    I have the program MBProbe for CPU temps which I can't get to work with a MSI6330Lite Board.
    To remove the program, you remove the Folder, ... BUT the program leaves a Registery Key which has to be edited from there to completely remove it :(
    ---
    Question: I have never looked at the Registery--either in this computer, or my old one--and was wonder if leaving that key in the Reg. would affect operation of any other programs :confused:

    you can leave it there and it wont do any harmm

    if you really want to remove it go here and get regcleaner easy to use
    http://www.webmasterfree.com/regcleaner.html

    if you want to do it by hand goto start<>run type in "regedit"<>goto tools<>find and type in mbprobe and every time it finds a refernce right click and delete

    but if you use regcleaner you will probably find loads of other programs that have left behind bits of themselves

    tip if you dont know what the program is dont remove the reg entry
