I have found RegistryDr by EuroTrade A.L. Ltd in my program list. I've tried to uninstall it with windows and with Ccleaner but a pop up message appeared, saying: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. Aprogram required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."
