Sure, I'm the mad downloader so I create a restore point before installing play around with the software.

If I don't want it I use System restore The typical Uninstaller leaves leftover files and registry entries.

Never liked System Restore and the first thing I do is turn it off.

I use various imaging programs, but for Windows 7 I use it's built in Backup and Restore for the initial image. I am also using ShadowProtect to make full image backups.

Mines on and I also create system restore points before I install new software. If I don't like it or don't want to keep it I just use cCleaner to remove it and then system restore.

OFF, its thrashes HDD's and that's a PIA even on quieter newer VRaptors (Raid 0), possibly not so much a big deal on SSD's.

I have a Auto Backup of all my Media etc to an external HDD if it all went wrong but as this install is 1 year old I would clean install.

System Restore is for when you mess up your PC not for uninstalling a normal bit of software you don't like, thats extreme.

I seriously doubt it removes all traces as neither did XP's or the failure in ME.

Better using a 3rd party uninstall program and then running Cleaner.

I leave System Restore on for customers PC's as they are n00bs and will someday need it, but its not there to uninstall a game when there done IMO.
