    I've got several programs that I've uninstalled in the past that haven't removed themselves from the registry(or so I assume). Things like WinAmp (2 and 3..). Doesn't exist on my computer but windows still believes it to be the default player for certain files. A while back on the forums I saw a link to a program that would remove these little leftovers without requiring the user (me) to use regedit, which I'm not comfortable with, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. Any suggestions?

    CacheSentry
    http://www.enigmaticsoftware.com/
    This is a program that fixes serious bugs in the Internet Explorer cache manager (versions 3.0
    on up through and including Internet Explorer for Windows XP, and IE6). This program basically
    takes over the job of managing the cache from Internet Explorer, and the result is your web
    browsing session will be more enjoyable. CacheSentry isn't like those "web acceleration"
    programs that hook into IE and attempt to make guesses about your browsing habits. CacheSentry
    simply does a better job of removing files from the cache, and fixes a few other bugs present in
    most versions of Internet Explorer.
