    Uninstalling Hostsman registry entries

    I Stopped HostsMan running process in Window Task Manager.

    I then uninstalled it using 'Advanced uninstaller pro free'

    I have now run 'Regscanner' for Hostsman and it's found entries in the registry which I have attached.

    Can it delete any of these entries or is best to leave them alone.

    As long as Hostman is not running any more then I don't mind leaving the registry entries as they are.
