Hi Friedrich,

Not related to SB, but I thought you might find this interesting<g>

Last week I installed a mouse driver (Intellipoint 6.1 I think it was)
on my dev machine. Ran into some issues with it so I uninstalled it
Friday.

Today I bougth a new 300G drive for the machine to store my photos on
and was moving stuff this evening when I noticed a folder on my
desktop called %SystemDrive% Started snooping around and apparently
when the driver uninstalled it created this folder on the desktop. It
contains foldertree:

Documents and Settings\UserName\Application
Data\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\My\ and there are 3 folders,
Certificates, CRLs and CTLs. Each of those is empty. Obviously
something was copied during the uninstall and wasn't removed.

Now, can you _please_ convince MS to use SETUPBUILDER to build their
installs so they can uninstall correctly?<g>

Maybe it was a vista ready install and it couldn't figure out how to
delete files where admin rights weren't required;)
