Windows 7: Deleting leftover files after System Restore

Deleting leftover files after System Restore

Hello folks,

Laptop got a little sluggish and some programs (Firefox, Waterfox, Handbrake etc) were crashing all the time. Uninstallation using Revo Uninstaller and reinstallation didn't seem to solve the problems. So had to restore the system to previous restore point which restored to the OS+updates to that day+ a few essential programs.

Now I am left with the system where there are no programs but settings are still there, so when I am installing the programs, it takes these settings to run. I was wondering how do I delete these settings?

I ran CCleaner but it didn't help. Any other pointer?

Thanks in advance.

Perform a factory restore or a clean install, thats the only way.
