I have Rod and nothing broke! I'm on Vista if that makes any difference.

Make sure you use the windows uninstall or the games uninstall software to do it. Good idea then to reboot, so the registry / FAT gets itself sorted, then run a registry fixer / optimizer program to find and delete any lost clusters / redundant DLL's / files / drivers etc. Uninstalls aren't 100% correct all the time. Do a backup of the registry first (these programs usually tell you do do that anyway, it case it all goes wrong). Then reboot again. Then do a disk compression. Then reboot again.

Depending on what Virus Software you have, many come with a options to help cleanup redundant files / optimise as well.

Toast, I wouldn't worry too much about all the techo stuff unless you have problems after uninstalling the particular game or program. Most of the time you won't, as uninstaller programs normally clean up after themselves, but occasionally, something will go awry as Yo Man says.

Windows will usually create a Restore Point whenever you install or uninstall something, but to be sure, it only takes a moment to create one manually like this:

START | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Restore.

Click the "Create a Restore Point" button.

Then if anything goes wrong, you can easily go back.
