How to tell if plugin_host.exe (Sublime Text) 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. Be sure to check the Registry as well for remnants of Sublime Text. To do this, start "Regedit", then look under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > "Software" for Sublime Text or the name of the producer.
