Registry entry

I uninstalled an application, and looking in the registry there are some entries, I'd like to know if it's safe to remove them, since I have made a copy of the folder before uninstalling it.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache\Cyb Tim 6
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache\Cyb-Tim 6
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache\Cyb-Tim 6 Server Update
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\CybTim - ODBC (this one has a few values in the right pane)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\lanmanserver\Shares (here there is a value in the right pane of a folder that I have created)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\lanmanserver\Shares (same as the previous)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\Shares (again like the previous)

I'd guess the last 3 are not a problem, but waiting for your assistance

Thank you

Generally, stay out of the ControlSets...

The top 3 shouldn't be a problem at all, the ODBCs may, as they're shared.
Export the registry (File/Export) before you proceed with deleting though...

Agree..  stay away from the ControlSets..  They contain the necessary keys needed to boot the system.  Usually, 002 has your Last Known Good information, while 001 is used to boot..  

Here is a good article on these:

And, as SB says, back it up before deleting anything in there..
