VB automatically registers your activeX server when you're developing an ActiveX server project.  I've been doing some testing of ActiveX EXEs so now I've got these servers registered on my machine which shows up as an available reference in any VB project I open.  I would like to get rid of these references.  How do I unregister these servers?  Regsvr32 /u only unregisters DLLs, not EXEs.

Download regclean from the microsoft site.

This will remove the registry entries of exe that are not available anymore.
From the command line you can unregister using myexe.exe /unregserver
