CCleaner will get rid of everything, if you tell it to.

www.ccleaner.com

Also try Add/Remove Programs

You said you didn't want to but if you do want to clean "everything" run a 7 sweep format then re-install the OS. It's my prefrence generally faster to backup and reformate than go file hunting your choice.
