  • In Opera, delete session.
  • Linux
    • Clean SeaMonkey 2.
    • Clean /var/tmp under KDE, and KDE should not crash.

    • Test on Fedora 15 (Lovelock).
    • Test on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal).

    • Clean Internet Explorer temporary files.
    • Delete Windows uninstallers.
    • Clean Silverlight: the paths should look like Silverlight.
    • Clean Windows Media Player: do the paths look like Windows Media Player? In WMP, verify the MRUs are gone.
