    In WindowsXP Pro, I had installed mozilla 1.7.3, FireFox 1.0RC2 and Netscape
    4.80 and 7.2 to try them out and test the differences in html rendering but
    now I have completed this project and would like to uninstall them fully.

    I uninstalled any extensions and plug-ins first, then I ran the uninstall
    from add/remove programs and deleted the application folders and the profile
    folders, but there are many references to these browsers in the registry.

    Has anyone written a utility to fully remove all traces of any of these
    browsers without having to restore a hard drive backup to really roll-back?

    Thanks for any help in this.

    You need a registry cleaner; LOTS of programs don't uninstall

    Advanced Registry Doctor is one such

    Try looking for 3rd party software that removes orphan entries in your
    registry. There are quite a number of them around these days. However, a
    word of caution, messing with the registry, even with such a program can
    be hazardous to your mental health so be wary and aware of what you're
    doing and/or planning.

    If uninstalling them does not work, try to RESTORE the system back to
    before you installed the applications. I find that most of the time, the
    system reverts back to the way it was before all the installation
    especially if you created a Restore Point. If you didn't, I think that
    when you installed the applications, Windows XP made a restore point for
    you. It is not always the case, but you can check it out.
