I just tried uninstalling ZAL myself and its took me quite a while to narrow down where most of the left files are. Had to use 3 apps to help me somewhat remove most of them (autoruns, RevoUninstaller, and Everything). There are quite a few traces left in the registry.

In addition to what others can't remove, Everything found folders left in the syswow64 folder.



Even deleting the keycrypt64, Event log still shows it tied with Wininit
