I'm using Windows 10 Home 64-bit. I have a program that was manually deleted from the “Program Files” folder, but it still shows it in the “Programs and Features” list, and when I click uninstall it shows an error message saying that Windows cannot find the uninstaller:
I've seen many other answers in this SE saying that from the registry editor I should go to:
for me, it was in
then go the key to be deleted by locating the key name created by the program, then finally delete the selected registry key and its values.
Where that worked, and no more issue in the add or remove programs panel, but I pressed Ctrl+F and typed in the 'application's name' and tried to search for in the registry editor, so I found many results
and in those locations for example:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Compatibility Assistant\Store
Should I worry about these values? would they have been removed if I had used the proper way of uninstallation? should I manually delete them? is their existence necessary? or should just ignore them?
