    The information about files stored in the Start Menu is stored in the registry and in uninstallation files
    Are these automatically updated when SMOz moves files from the original directories to the new categorised ones?
    If not, there is going to be files and registry entries left over when you uninstall an application

     
    • Simple, Just use CrapCleaner to remove these

       
  • Well it is not as simple as that, it is not about working around but rather properly solving a genuine problem. With 20+ years in software development I simply don't believe in quick and dirty solutions, they will always come and bite you later.
