Normally there is a string called "DisplayName" in the key. If it is present the value of it is displayed as the program name. If it is not present the keys name is displayed followed by ' ***'.

I was just testing your the uninstaller (version 2.2.5) and have found some installed apps that will not uninstall.  No errors but after uninstall, the names are still there.  They have the three asterisks "***" after their name.

Does the "***" have anything to do with this or am I looking in the wrong place?

a) The *** has nothing to do with it --- some programs just doesn't cleanup after themselves very well
b) You should really update to a newer version of ZU!
