One of my hard drives failed. Not a huge disaster, as most of what was on there was applications, games etc. However, I'm having trouble tidying up behind it.
For example, Windows thinks Battle.net is still installed. If I try to remove it via Add or Remove programs, it actually launches the Battle.net uninstaller (which is weird, I guess that exists somewhere on my SSD), which promptly fails for obvious reasons. I'm not so concerned about individual applications, but I really don't want to leave fragments of application references around forever if I can avoid it. Even if I could somehow manually 'uninstall' these things, this wouldn't be a very practical solution as a) I don't have a way of listing everything that was on there, and b) it's going to be a hassle to hunt things down one by one. So I'm really looking for a big red button labelled "Fix everything please".
I tried running CCleaner to clean up the registry, which didn't seem to help at all. Surely this is a reasonably common problem - is there a standard solution for this sort of thing?
