Windows 7: ccleaner remove thunderbird application?

ccleaner remove thunderbird application?

I've uninstalled thunderbird via control panel but it still shows in the ccleaner applications list (I assume it's in the registry)

Any ideas on how I can prevent thunderbird from showing in the applications section in ccleaner?

The "delete entry" button on the right maybe.

Probably it's due to leftovers from a faulty uninstall or simply that the uninstaller didn't delete something (probably user settings) intentionally. Anyway, by deleting them you get rid of them forever.

Problem solved.

From what I understand it's files that gets left over that makes CCleaner think a program is installed when infact it isn't.

To solve the problem I searched "appdata" in "run" and then within the 3 folders that showed up I searched through each one and deleted the folders I thought I didn't need (programs I had already uninstalled via control panel).

After doing so I opened CCleaner and Thunderbird was gone amongst a few other programs I deleted via the appdata method.

However certain programs failed to get removed like this so I had to delete the program entries manually myself through the registry.

CCleaner now only shows the programs I have installed. My original problem may be small but it's quite annoying as Thunderbird had a load of other options, was at top of list within the applications section on CCleaner of which then meant I had to scroll down the list!

Meh if anyone reads this, it helped me to remove programs in the CCleaner list and also if planning to edit the registry perform a backup as editing the registry can easily mess up your computer if you don't know what your doing properly.
