Win 10 - Completely remove any app/program - keep the OS clean

Hey all,

Whenever I go to uninstall a piece of software, I like to 'completely remove' it. I have gone in the registry and deleted things etc... I always feel like I miss something though.

I'm just wondering if there is a recommended way of doing it properly? An automated way perhaps?

I used to use CCleaner in the past but I haven't used it for a while now - I read that it wasn't that great - is there a program anyone can recommend that does what I want?

I do fresh installs of Windows every now and then but it's a pain getting everything installed again and setup, so this time around I want to do the 'housekeeping' of the OS properly and keep it as clean as possible.
