How can I completely uninstall Tortoise?

Hello everyone,

I would like to uninstall Tortoise completely, i.e. removing all related registry entries. I used the normal uninstall function and the CCleaner software afterwards, but there are still about a dozen Tortoise entries on my computer (and that does not include any entries which I couldn't find by searching manually for "Tortoise"). Does anyone know how to completely remove this software?

The reason for my question is as follows:
Tortoise doesn't seem to work with FreeCommander (a software which is just like the windows explorer, but better) if you install Tortoise first. I "installed" the FreeCommander first (i.e. unpacked it, since it doesn't have an installation routine) and then I installed Tortoise and everything works fine, but a colleague of mine had Tortoise installed for some years already (and always updated it) and now he installed FreeCommander, but he doesn't have any Tortoise entries in the context menue of FreeCommander.

Reinstalling Tortoise and registry cleaning didn't help.

We are both using FreeCommander 2009-02 and Tortoise 1.6.5.

Does anyone know either how to let FreeCommander know of the updated context menue or how to completely remove Tortoise?

Kind Regards,
