JSI Tip 1592. IntelliType uninstall does not remove all it's registry entries.

When you uninstall Microsoft IntelliPoint software, it leaves some registry entries.

There is already enough clutter in the registry and we don't need a poorly written unistall to contribute to it.

Use Regedt32 to navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Microsoft Input Devices\WindowsPointer

Delete the following Value Names:

FastPointer

MouseKey

MouseKeyJump

MouseKeyFeedback

If no Value Names remain after deleting the above, Delete the WindowsPointer key.
