Windows Mail Registry Leftovers


Recommended Posts

It seems that some registy entries are left after removing Windows Mail on Vista Enterprise x64. The registry entries are:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft Internet Mail Message
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft Internet News Message

There are several values in those keys which reference %ProgramFiles%\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe. Are this left for compatibility? Or they can be safely removed?

BTW, those registry entries appear in CCleaner and it seems that it can't remove them. I always check to remove them, but they appear in the next scan.

EDIT: CCleaner screenshot

This is a problem now? How come?

Try any "more important" reg entry and you'll find the same. It's the normal permissions, protected against users tampering it. Report to CCleaner, I already set it to be cleaned in the next version.
