    Does anyone know of a program that will completely uninstall programs and also get rid of fragments of programs that were leftover by previous attempts at uninstalling programs, broken links, bogus registry files, etc? Thanks in advance.

    I use Norton SystemWorks. It includes CleanSweep, Which monitors installs, and will completely remove anything it monitors. It wont clean programs already installed, Just the ones installed after installing CleanSweep. SystemWorks also includes Norton Utilities, Which has WinDoctor. WinDoctor will clean your registry, fix broken links, etc... SystemWorks also comes with Norton Anti-Virus. I have used SystemWorks since 98, and wouldnt use a PC without it :)

    Regseeker is a freeware utility which does much of what WinDoctor does:

    BTW
    I have also used NSW for years and have noticed it getting more buggy with every passing year.
    I would not have CleanSweep running in the background monitoring everything, or have anything like System Doctor running: BIG time resource hogs.
    Only NAV!!
