a while back i completed the steps to follow to remove a virus from my computer. so after i completed all the steps and got rid of the virus and that, all the programs that were downloaded in the process were unistalled from my computer, becuase i never needed them anymore. so my computer was back to normal and all the downloaded programs (SS&D, AVG, CCleaner, AVG Spyware, etc.) were removed, but a few days ago after i restarted my computer the icons for a few of these programs showed up. So my question is, is there a way to check and see if i removed these programs completely (for example - anywhere in the registry)? becuase i can't seem to find anything when i search for the program name. thank-you for any help.
