How to tell if OCHelper.dll (Microsoft Lync) 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.

Always keep in mind that only a computer professional should ever directly delete entries in the Windows Registry.
