MR Tech AOL Cleaner is a tool to do some major house cleaning of what AOL & AIM install with their latest installers. For more info read "Recovering from AOL's Installed Tools" posting at the "MR Tech Tip & Tweaks Forum".

It currently prompts you to pick the uninstallation and removal of any of the following "non-critical" AOL or AIM installed programs:
■ AOL Coach 1.0 & 2.0
■ AOL Computer Check-Up 2.0
■ AOL Deskbar
■ AOL & AIM IE Toolbar
■ AOL Spyware Protection & Data
■ AOL You've Got Pictures Screensaver
■ Pure Networks Port Magic
■ Viewpoint Media Player
■ WeatherBug
■ Wildtangent & Wildtangent User Data
■ Removal of AIM Backup Installers

Note: for components that AOL may need later, it will reinstall them accordingly.

It then it will read registry locations of each component and uninstaller, then will try to run the uninstaller, remove files/directories based on registry locations, clean up most clsid entries and will then cleanup common installation paths for other lingering files.
