Multiple Entries
« on: January 30, 2008, 05:33:26 PM »
I have multiple entries of the same programs and one with the registry address can you tell me why and how can I fix. I tried to search but didn't find what I needed. Maybe I was looking in the wrong place. Can someone point me in the right direction please? ???  ;D

If I remember correctly this happened some time ago to me to (with Google Toolbar or something).

Why did this happen? That's easy: Programs can store their uninstall-information in two parts of the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER - ZSoft Uninstaller (ZU) reads both. If a program decides to add its uninstall-info both places it will be added to the list in ZU twice.
