Re: Blind Extra Leaves Traces on Your System, Even After Uninstallation

Something is telling whatever does this to look for that add on even though it is no longer there.  I don't know where that information is stored or how it might be removed.  At any event, it sounds like a curiosity rather than anything that matters so if you get the answer, that's fine but it shouldn't cause any problems, I don't think it even causes a noticeably longer time for NVDA to boot.  But it does raise the interesting question about whether uninstalling other add ons cause not found messages for them as well.

Blind Extra is not there. I checked the path, and the addons manager;
it's not on his machine.
