Kirk,

Nothing very useful to contribute I'm afraid, but I just must comment. It
seems such a foreign concept to worry about tidying up a PC. Like using
tweezers after a flood. We just nuke 'em and re-install after they get
fried. Users do understand that nothing on their local disk is saved, so
all data is stored on a network drive. This has the added advantage of
making sure that corporate data really does get backed up regularly.

Windows apps are really getting a lot better at uninstalling themselves.
Sometimes you need to do a little registry clean-up, but they generally
keep track of each file they install and are capable of removing it again.
Most even honor access counts for shared resources.
