    Sometimes I miss the days before the windows registry. Remove a program and it was gone.

    I had 2 Atari 800 Xls and 1 Atari 1200 XLT with dual 5 1/4 inch disk drives. Then I moved up to a Tandy 1000 rsx with Deskmate. My first Windows computer was a Packard Bell with either Window 3.1 for Work Group or Windows 3.11 for Work Group. Not sure which one it was now.

    We had one kid on the block (kinda like Cartman), his mom bought him anything he wanted. He had one, made all the rest of us so jealous

    Agreed.

    Moving programs to a new HDD was a doddle too.

    Thatís why Windows 10 needs a better app uninstaller
    Another "uninstaller" to compliment the 5 or so different uninstallers already included in Windows?

    Microsoft already built a new uninstaller and included it with Windows 8 that removes every file and other piece of the installed program but its only applies to 'Modern' applications. The desktop is 'legacy' and will not get new features (e.g. another uninstaller) other than those now being built as Modern applications such as Cortana, Start-menu and the Control Panel.

    Why are people surprised when their machine runs like poo after installing and uninstall volumes of 'legacy' applications over long periods... Your computer is not a taxi and you're just asking for trouble.
