How to tell if terminal.exe (MetaTrader) 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 MetaTrader. To do this, start "Regedit", then look under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > "Software" for MetaTrader or the name of the producer. Always keep in mind that only a computer professional should ever directly delete entries in the Windows Registry.

The easiest way to remove any kind of software cleanly and accurately is to use an uninstaller tool. Because the uninstaller automatically creates a backup, there is no risk of anything going wrong.
