How to remove the entries from the Visual Studio 2005 splash screen?

I had installed VTune, ThreadProfiler and ThreadChecker on my system together with the Visual Studio 2005 plugins. Now I uninstalled all these programs but the splash screen (when starting VS 2005) still shows the entries "Intel Thread Profiler" and "Intel Thread Checker". Also there are entries in the help menu.

How can I remove all these relicts?

BTW: I removed these programs because they hampered VS 2005. Without having these programms installed VS 2005 starts within 3 seconds and needs approx. 25 MB memory. With these programms installed it needs 50 seconds to start and takes 300 MB memory! And every additional instance of VS 2005 needs further 300 MB memory. This can not be in earnest!?

Look into the registry under the following path:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]SOFTWAREMicrosoftVisualStudio8.0InstalledProducts

You just need to remove the keys containig information about the products you mentiond.

But the product uninstall actually should remove them...
