    I installed easeus recently, but it was of no use to me (forced buying it just to do anything), so I uninstalled it. it uninstalled, but it said something like: "the program couldn't uninstall everything, some things must be remove manually." what does that mean exactly? I deleted the left over easeus folder. is that it? is there a way to wipe the computer clean of all traces of easeus even if the app has already been installed? I thought of revo, but doesn't that cost money for uninstalled apps? thanks!

    I use CCleaner to get rid of unused files that have been leftovers of uninstalls. Sometimes I double check in the /program files. Not sure if this helps

    Programs usually leave some folder and registry files behind that needs to be manually removed, I use Revo Uninstaller Pro for this type of stuff.

    If you are worrying about files left behind, you can delete folder and file related to easeus in ProgramData and AppData.

    thanks. I think I might've gotten. it's in neither location. I did test out revo pro (trial version) and used its database log. I'm not sure if it did anything though as it just zips by too quickly to read anything.

    I mean it scan for leftover file for you when you uninstall a program.

    this was an app already uninstalled using normal windows. revo seems to have a database for uninstalled apps. I wasn't sure if the easeus trial was pro or normal. I think it was pro, but I don't know if a trial version would be affected by the same database.
