Cleaning up registry

How can I remove some of the program names listed in "Add/Remove Programs" in the control Panel? I heard that it has to do with the registry.
Also, is there any program that can remove all registry entries that are no longer useful to my computer?

The location you are looking for is

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

The rest should be straight forward in REGEDIT.

There is a regclean.exe program supplied by Microsoft which may be of some help to you.

Theer's also an unsupported tool from Microsoft called TweakuI (search for it on MS site) which allows you to delete apps from the add/remove progs menu.
