| After uninstalling my Norton Security Suite and going for one of Freeware anti-virus apps (Microsoft Essentials). I decided to browse thru the registry to look for registry keys still listed related to Norton /Symantec ! |
Under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT I found several registry keys that start out with NAV for example NAVCfgWizDll.NAVCfgWizMgr and NAVCfgWizDll.NAVCfgWizMgr.1
and one more example NAVComUI.AxListViewCtrl , in all there are at least seven or so ,also ebay has alot of entries under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, I have not used ebay nor even been to their web site in a few years ,have zero software installed relating to ebay ? There are numerous entries that look like they are left overs from uninstalled apps etc. Is it better for me to just leave these alone ,Iam aware a mistake with removing registry keys can render your PC a paper weight ! At the same time how are these unnessasary keys effecting the performance of my PC ? Thanks to All that reply ,sorry if Iam being a pain !
