    Should I delete this folder in the Registry


    I have uninstalled Setpoint with Advanced Uninstaller but though it supposedly cleans up the Registry afterwards, it actually doesn't.
    While in the Registry, I typed "Setpoint" under Find and it brings me to this particular Folder. In it, I see several things regarding Setpoint. My questions is, should I delete just the material in this Folder or should I delete the whole Folder. I'll give a screenshot of what I mean. Hopefully this helps.

    I would say you could delete the folder.
