A couple of days ago I was changing a few keys in my registry in order to fix my reoccurring DSO Exploit problem, when I noticed several keys for programs that I had uninstalled many, many moons ago.

Why aren’t these keys removed when you uninstall the software? Is it safe to delete these keys, now that I have uninstalled the software?

Alot of uninstallers wont remove everything.
Also run a search for your old programs; just to see.
Any leftovers should be safe to delete.
Backup the registry if it males you feel better.

Also this is a good little freeware cleaner:

RegSeeker 1.35
