    Help removing anything Apple from win7 ?

    Activating Apple is one thing & the store is another but sometimes it get's confused.

    I would like to start anew and remove anything & all Apple files & reg (anything) to start fresh.

    Is this possible without restoring win7 ?

    Cool

    If you have an image done before anything apple was installed you could restore to that.

    The Image restore is most likely the quickest.

    Manually, try using Revo Uninstaller Pro (free trial available, I say use Pro because the free version only works with 32 Bit apps, pro does both 32 Bit and 64 Bit) to uninstall everything related to Apple. Use the Advanced scan to search for leftovers. Then use CCleaner to search for additional leftovers. I would also use the Registry portion of CCleaner and delete any entries having to do with Apple. I only use the registry portion of CCleaner when I have uninstalled an app to look for leftovers from that app.

    I suppose further you could manually scan the registry (very carefully). Run regedit. Use Find, then use F3 to continue to any other entries. Check each entry to see what it is.
