There wasn't as many registry things to delete anyways. It maybe took like 20 minutes. Most of it was just the waiting time between searching for entries. I was just posting back what I did in case anybody else had tried manually removing stuff or things weren't working out. Manually going through the registry will clean it for sure.
Always be EXTRA careful when editing things in the registry! You can seriously mess up your pc or one of your programs if you delete the wrong thing.
I know that. But I also know that no other computers on my comp depend on it, I checked everything for only the super obvious "this is a google update key only" and I made system images before and after. I know what I'm getting myself into lol.
