How to tell if fsm32.exe (F-Secure Settings and Statistics) was uninstalled cleanly

After uninstalling, restart your computer. Then start Windows Explorer and see if there is still a folder with the name of the software under C:\Program Files.

To do this, start "Regedit", then look under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > "Software" for F-Secure Settings and Statistics or the name of the producer.
