Something similar already exists and is part of Norton Systemworks. Problem is, how do you know for sure that it's just stupid adware?

If I'm not mistaken, there are some *.inf files in this folder too that tell exactly what has been installed and thus how to uninstall it. But it can be a lot more complex than just deleting files and removing registry settings...
