That the beauty of Revo.....that's built into it. With just a few extra clicks it's done.
Then why isn't it working? There are a ton of registry entries, files and some folders still left. :(

Maybe narrow the search to "wps office" or "kingsoft"? There are a few keys in your attached file that have nothing at all to do with wps office..

I can't answer that but it IS the problem I started with - I cannot get rid of WPS Office. Shall I narrow the search, as suggested by Snuffleufflegus

There are many with only wps and those wouldn't come up if we narrowed the search. Some won't really be necessary to delete. We can start with a basic regfix that will remove many of the entries and then see what's left.

I'm attaching a RegFix.zip file. Please unzip it (extract the contents) and double-click the RegFix.reg file to run it. Allow it through UAC if prompted and allow it to merge with the registry.

Delete these folders:

C:\Users\ray\AppData\Roaming\Kingsoft

C:\Users\ray\AppData\Local\Kingsoft

C:\Users\ray\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\WPS Office

Reboot and then run SystemLook again with the same script and attach the results.

Bluntly you have to know how to use the software. I'll try to explain as best as I can. Well I found a video that shows exactly how to use it. I choose the advance option myself.

I watched this video this morning B4 downloading Revo. I just used 'uninstall' but chose an advanced scan. Thanks.

Do you have a browser extension for WPS on any of your browsers. I know some software will sneak that in on installation.
No. I don't have that but I noticed it sneaks in the PDF reader, even though I unchecked the box for that. Thanks

The narrowing down is actually just finding more things that didn't turn up with just wps so it's getting worse. There are far too many entries to to through manually.

im not going to give advice on how to get rid of all them entries as my way of doing it is extreme,but will wipe ALL traces of said software.I will let Cookiegal and bassfisher deal with that as they must use a different program to do so.In my honest opinion though,by looking at the last 2 systemlook scans you uploaded i would remove them all,reboot and see what happens.I will just monitor the thread for now.

First look for it under Start - Settings - Apps and see if it's listed there to be uninstalled.

In the first screenshots I asked for there are entries that should not be removed as they don't pertain to this software at all so be careful.

I don't think it's wise to remove all of those entries either unless you know what you're doing. In some cases it's only the value data that needs to be removed and not the key itself so you could run into trouble if you start deleting everything.

Although i disagree with your prognosis,i can safely say with the utmost certainty that it is safe to delete them keys whether being value data,dwords,regdwords,binary values....etc..However,as you say "As long as you know what your doing".
By narrowing the search,you are getting the "exact results" your looking for.
In his scan for "Kingsoft",the only results that came up were for wps office.
Same with the scan for wps office.
I would delete the results,and reboot .Atleast your not taking the risk of deleting the wrong key.You know you only deleting the software related keys.
If it works,great,if not,then do a rescan of just "wps".
I find that just scan for a partial name could bring up anything and to me makes things more difficult.
I will not argue your point though cookiegal,but as this only my opinion as we all may have a different way of doing things.
I apologize if it sounds like im questioning your tech skills.I guess im just seeing it differently,or would just go about it differently,or i am misinterpreting you.
