Re: system file structure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Within Norton System Works there is Norton CleanSweep (similar to Unistaller).
With the wizards in this program you can see a list of the files (and registry
information) associated with a program.  You can print this list and then cancel
the process (either unistalling or moving or backing up, etc.).  You must go
into View Details to get the list.
