Default Perfect Uninstall?

I'm kind of confused as to how the Windows XP uninstall utility leaves the directories there after uninstalling the program(s)? I understand that there are many uninstall utilities out there that says they completely remove the program safely. Are these programs good to use? Is using the XP uninstall bad in the long run because it clogs up the registry?

If so, any recommendation on a freeware?
