Ever look through your Windows start menu, especially those of you still on XP, and count how many shortcuts are listed for programs that are no longer installed on your computer? “Endless” seems to be the right number in many cases. This problem stems from uninstall programs, not cleaning up after themselves. Oh, and don’t bother removing them manually, it’s a tedious process at best. (This I say from experience.)
OrphansRemover to the rescue. Just install and run this small program and it will find all the orphaned shortcuts in not only your start menu but in other locations on your computer. What could be simpler?
