    I think you can safely delete the keys related to the deleted program.

    Always remember to back up anything your changing or deleting in the registry, before you change it or delete it, and you can always put it back like it was if something goes wrong.

    Re: Registry Question

    That is very wise advice, Cowboy, and in general, I agree . But this post concerned registry entries related to a windows service the poster programmed herself, and then deleted, so I don't think there is any harm in removing the entries, nor any need to keep a backup. And I would have thought that you of all persons would dare to live dangerously! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Registry Question

    I can't remember ever backing up the registry before making a change. <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35> But That is not the advice I would give to someone else. Because if they didn't and then screwed up thier System, guess who they will blame. <img src=/S/argue.gif border=0 alt=argue width=50 height=25>
